Wool & Water | Curiouser & Curiouser


For the past month or so I have been inexcusably lazy, in my life, my blog and my style. There is no real reason other than a general feeling of malaise and a loss of direction.
However, I hope to get back on the blogging horse and this post is just the start.

I recently attended the opening night of the play Here Comes the Night in Belfast's famous Lyric theatre. Situated in the leafy suburb of Stranmillis, the theatre underwent a major rebuild a few years ago and is now a modern and bold piece of architecture. I thought this the perfect opportunity to wear my new Wool & Water bow tie.

My cunning reasoning for this was 2-fold. An evening at the theatre called for a more dapper outfit and Alice, the designer and creator behind Wool & Water is an actress herself, and actually appeared in a play in the Lyric! Alice is originally from England but is currently based in the Netherlands, giving my look a truly cosmopolitan feel.

The latest range is inspired by great writers and literary characters including Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Dorothy Parker. I chose The Fitzgerald, (named for F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of The Great Gatsby); the deco pattern and bold colour combination shouted 1920's to me.

I paired The Fitzgerald bow tie with a classic white oxford shirt, navy crew neck jumper and vintage tweed blazer.

With a range of hand-knitted accessories including ties, bow ties and braces,  is a creative and fun brand. Each piece is a limited edition, for exclusivity and practicality as Alice knits and sews each one by hand. By limiting the number of pieces, this ensures your tie is so much more special.

Check out the full range over on Wool & Water and read my Curious Interview with Alice.

Thank you to Wool & Water for gifting me with The Fitzgerald bowtie.
