Who started it? The men's accessories brand was launched last year by British-born Becky French. The designer, who has a degree in fashion from London's Kingston University, has worked at top labels such as Ralph Lauren and Aquascutum. Specialising in neckties, Marwood blends traditional techniques and fine fabric with innovative and contemporary design. The label is stocked by high-end stores such as Harvey Nichols and Liberty's of London. Why we love it: the innovative use of lace injects French's ties with an interesting touch, a look reminiscent of our favourite dandy, Oscar Wilde. The latest autumn-winter collection features beautiful ties and bow-ties made from textured silk. Also worth checking out is the label's expanding line of scarves and shawls. What we'd pick: Marwood has ties and bow-ties for every occasion, from work to weddings, in an array of colours, materials and patterns. Bow-ties range from HK$1,100 to HK$1,350 and ties from HK$1,250 to HK$1,600. Where can you get it? Marwood is available at Kapok, 5 St Francis Yard, Wan Chai, tel: 2549 9254.
