Title of Work Spring/Summer 2014 Accessories

New York-based men’s accessories brand Title of Work (that we introduced to The Style Examiner readers back in November 2012 – see HERE) has just made available in stores two collections for Spring/Summer 2014. Herewith, The Style Examiner’s edit of what we believe to be a selection of the most successful and representative pieces for this season.



The ‘Mapping’ collection comprises neckties, bowties, cufflinks, tie bars, pocket squares and scarves featuring geometric patterns and designs inspired by topographical tools, land graphs, nautical maps, and astrological symbols. Following the anchoring creative ethos and the conceptual treatment evidenced in previous Title of Work collections, for this range designer Jonathan Meizler collaborated with aerial photographer Fridrik Orn Hjaltested to incorporate shots of Icelandic landscapes onto pocket squares and scarves. In addition, sterling silver, black diamonds and Japanese ‘miyuki’ beads were used to enliven a sombre colour palette through painstakingly detailed and subtle hand-made patterns.

Continuing the appreciation for artisanal manufacturing methods, the Title of Work Spring/Summer 2014 ‘Exhibit A’ collection explores the role played by the influence of heritage and tradition in the creation of contemporary menswear. To achieve this, Meizler used archival fabric swatches produced in mills from Como, Italy, featuring classic patterns and colours such as plaids, greys and blacks, and reinterpreted them by injecting innovative pixelated and micro-dotted designs, as well as dashes of bright red, green, pink, cobalt and light blue.



Title of Work’s designs are available in Barneys New York, Holt Renfrew and Isetan in Japan, as well as online at www.titleofwork.com.
