Viola Milano was founded in Milan, born to create the world’s most timeless, elegant and understated luxury collection of handmade ties and accessories. Combining the Italian craftsmanship, luxury fabrics and impeccable fit, Viola Milano gives men an opportunity to express their personality with individual twists to their outfits.
When most people think about a tie, they are most likely imagining a classic 3-fold construction. While it is the simplest construction offered in Viola Milano collections, it is by no means an inferior option. Creating a beautiful tie is all about balance, and many times the light and minimalistic 3-fold is the perfect choice. For instance, it is ideal for light summer ties or for heavier fabrics that would become too hefty with other constructions.
Imagine your favourite unconstructed sport coat. It is light, comfortable and wears beautifully. It is sporty and casual, yet elegant and refined. Viola Milano untipped ties are just like that sport coat – By removing the tipping (the fabric used to line the backside of a tie) they achieve a beautiful, light drape that is ideal for a downplayed, elegant look.
The tip is simply the fabric that is used to finish the backside of a tie. Even though this part of your tie is not usually visible, Viola Milano use the same fabric for the tip as they do for the shell of the tie. This beautiful method is called self-tipping and, while more expensive to produce, creates a more beautiful tie that stands up to closer scrutiny without leaving you disappointed.
The Grenadine Silk Ties
The light, crisp weave of our silk grenadine fabrics make our garza fina and garza grossa ties perfect for daily wear. Match them with your favourite suits and sport coats for a classically elegant and downplayed look. No wardrobe is complete without a one garza fina and one garza grossa grenadine tie from Viola Milano.
Cashmere Knit Ties
Viola Milano is all about playing with texture in personal style. Whether it is a crunchy silk or a soft cashmere, a knit tie is a perfect way to add some casual elegance to any outfit. A navy knit tie will go equally well with a three piece heavy tweed in winter, as it will with your favourite washed cotton jacket in summer. If you prefer even more texture than you get from a solid knit tie, have a look at beautiful shantung and grenadine silk ties as well.
