The giraffe SS12 Tie Collection lookbook perfectly embodies the quirky and versatile nature of the ties it showcases. Through a family vacation theme that involves everyone from grandpa right down to his little granddaughter, these snapshots are cute and whimsical with no shortage of affection. It is fun to see their genuine smiles against the fabricated backdrops.
Titled Journey, the giraffe SS12 Tie Collection lookbook features a range of different menswear accessories from classic bow ties to western-inspired pendant ties. According to Hypebeast, "each tie is based around a temperature threshold." The ties also vary in colors and patterns from muted hues to kitschy travel prints. Each tie is crafted from fabrics woven in Kyoto.
The giraffe SS12 Tie Collection is available at the Japanese boutique TOMORROWLAND as well as online at ZOZOTOWN.
