Today’s style inspiration comes to you from mother and daughter duo Trish and Michelle from South Australian label Incy Ink. Our handsome mini model Jasper (and his mum Tahnea) had a heaps of fun trying out the Incy Ink sugar skulls bow tie. This tie matches with so many different outfits, and it’s our pleasure today to share our review.
Bow ties are awesome… Doctor Who, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Groucho Marx, and Frank Sinatra are just a few awesome icons who agree. The humble bow tie makes it easy to dress up a formal shirt or funkify a hipster / rockabilly outfit. I personally love to see them paired with offbeat combos like shorts and cons or skinny jeans and suspenders.
This bow tie from Incy Ink is made from 100% cotton and features a hook clasp for easy dressing. The sugar skulls pattern is versatile enough to work alongside both block colours and simple patterns, and is on trend for the summer party season. Trish and Michelle clearly love what they do and their passion is evident in the excitement they show towards their label. I’m looking forward to seeing their future collections.
The verdict… a whimsical piece for little wardrobes.
Incy Ink is a creative project by a Granny [Trish] and a Mum [Michelle] of an energetic 2 year old boy. The label came to fruition in 2014 with the aim of producing stylish, alternative gear for little boys. Michelle says, “We have a strong focus on quirky and unique fabrics and aim to bring fun, edgy, and one of a kind designs to little dudes’ wardrobes”.
Key pieces in the range include the original ‘King for a Day’ onesie, which Michelle says, “brings lots of smiles to people looking for the perfect baby shower gift (or just a gift of love). Top it off with one of our rad newborn beanies and you’ve got yourself an awesome outfit that will definitely stand out in a crowd”.
You can also find the sugar skulls fabric (among others) as dribble bibs, made from 100% cotton and backed with a soft stay dry fabric (allowing the little ones to drool and stay cool). Oh, and don’t forget about my personal favourite, the (almost sold out) Bats pants! Incy Ink will be making heaps of new designs for summer, including cotton shorts, so stay tuned!
Trish and Michelle pride themselves on working with local businesses and suppliers, sourcing ethically made items for their collection. Their design aesthetic has a rockabilly flair and is pitched at parents looking for something that appeals to their own sense of style. Michelle says, “We love that our gear attracts the guys to purchase from us! At markets we have many a delighted Dad, Granddad, or Uncle who enjoy choosing a gift for the little man in their life”.
Keep your eyes peeled for new items, coming soon!
