The traditional tie is symbolic for a traditional way of dressing. In some cases it even became a symbol of profession and part of some sort of uniform. But as customs and habits change, it has more and more become a statement to rebel against traditional codes and to get rid of the tie. Can the tie incarnate this shift and be given the image of a more contemporary adornment designed around the changed clothes habits, dress codes and lifestyle? My proposal not only offers play with material, shape and size but can also be worn on T-shirts, polo shirts or any other garment a modern man wishes to wear it with. The cravate détourée stands for a tie free of codes and traditions developed for the 60th anniversary of the Hermes tie.
