Bow tie, in the past and today

Martina Erbanová

Did you know that the masculine accessory – the bow tie was originally created by a woman? Madame de Pompadour, the famous mistress to the king Louis XV and one of the influential women of that time, as she was known for her cultivation of the arts, as an example.

In many of the famous paintings of her, one can see her wearing an accessory around her neck that looks like a bow tie. Madame de Pompadour is officially the creator of what we know today as a bow tie. The bow choker was a real provocation of that time with Madame often wearing the accessory.

The tradition of wearing the bow ties goes back to the 17th century. French soldiers brought the look back home from the Thirty Years War to France. The upper class adopted the idea into the fashion and so the era of neckties was born.

Over the past decades, the bow tie was continuously refined and re-designed. The form and size used to be larger, then smaller again. Famous style makers like Manolo Blahik and Karl Lagerfeld defined the neckwear in a new way, making it less formal and boring. Famous personalities like Charlie Chaplin, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra made the bow tie to their style symbol. And Bond… James Bond?
