Miami Signal Linen Union Tie
This print is part of a collection commissioned by Dr.Stacey Hunter, Director of Local Heroes, for the Love Design project showcasing in the G&V Hotel, Edinburgh from 7th - 28th February 2017. The colour palette was to be inspired by 1930's Miami and reflect a 'modern elegance'
The print, I first designed in 2016 as 'Breton Signal’ - a Breton Stripe / railway signal fusion designed to bring energy and movement to the seaside classic stripe but I have turned the colours towards a Miami inspired palette for this project.
Printing on 100% Scottish linen union gives the tie a contemporary twist - a popular material during the 1940’s Swing era.
8 cm blade, standard 152 cm length. Self tipped & hand finished with a colour 'gift' on the reverse of an unexpected colour bar tack.
Designed, printed and stitched in Edinburgh.
