The Eames Bow Tie, designed by Ray!


Here's a quick follow-up to my recent slideshow last week on the bow ties of modern architects. Little did I realize, until I saw this video, that Ray Eames designed her husband Charles' bow ties herself. A seamstress in New York made them for Charles and in this video from Eames Collector we get a rare glimpse of her design, as well as "the many moods of the Eames bow tie." I love it!
