Artistic new silk ties: Blue Poppy from the V&A, by iconic designer William Morris: currently unavailable


Whatever your politics, it’s time for a pure silk true blue tie! Blues are top in the new-season collections, the perfect tie to wear with city charcoal and navy blue suits. And being the work of British designer William Morris, making a sophisticated statement for an artistic man about town, so much the better.

Morris is the 19th century’s most celebrated designer, as well as being a poet, novelist and polymath. ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful,’ he wrote—and here in Morris’s creative designs, all now in the collection of the V&A in London, and Fox & Chafe’s well-made pure silk ties, both use and beauty combine.

Here, Blue Poppy, 1876: a foliate pattern of entwined leaves and blue poppies.
