Maybe I'm a bit slow, but I hadn't heard of the designer Alexis Mabille until the Colette x Gap pop-up store came to Manhattan, introducing a bevy of young independent designers, some with familiar names, others completely new to my ears. Mabille's grey felted bow bag caught my eye, but by the time I made it to the completely mobbed and way over-hyped shoebox of a store, there was no sign of it in sight. I recently did get around to finding his website and browsing through his ready to wear collection, and was overwhelmed by the plethora of bows that were used on bags, collars, and headbands to accessorize the runway show.

Bows for boys! These little sequined bow-ties remind me of the dinky black ones we got from the Halloween Store for our Fosse-inspired night last year. Somehow they look better when you stack three of them on top of each other and stick them on a male model.
