Jose Bravo explains that his “Take a Bow” collection is meant to transform any wardrobe:

“As an accessories designer, I wanted to create transitional pieces that can be worn with anything and everything. I am always looking for ways to make a simple outfit standout and bowties are an accessory I love wearing but there is not much versatility in it, so I decided to re-envision the classic bowtie to fit any wardrobe”.
