Take a bow

Bows are not just for tuxedos anymore.This spring, we saw bows everywhere in both men’s and women’s wear. At the Academy Awards this year, almost all actors, including George Clooney and Johnny Depp wore their tuxedos paired with bows. Simultaneously, a lot of major designers styled their girls with bows on the spring runway. Bow are like the new accessories that women borrowed from men, they serve the same function as scarves or necklaces. The girl who ties a big bow on herself looks like a naughty but interesting girl who steals Daddy’s bow. Bows add the boyish playfulness to any “too-girly girls”.


This spring, bows are everywhere, on blouses, one-piece dresses, and even spring vests. The five images above all belong to Marc by Marc’s 2008 S/S runway collection. Bows are feminine touchs this spring and summer.
