The Tourist

About

The Tourist

The butterfly bow tie is an essential item in menswear and creates a wondrous source of inspiration for the collection. "The Tourist" is a story about a forever young traveller, an avid researcher of butterflies curiously motivated to fulfil his dream by travelling to the most remote corners of the world. This men's collection is in a "safari" style, assimilating the classic and functionally comfortable clothing of the tourist's wardrobe. It is dedicated to seven of the world's most significant scientists – butterfly researchers. The most interesting among them are: Yale University professor Charles Lee Remington (who is considered to the be the father of modern lepidopterology, which is the scientific study of moths and butterflies), Friedrich Wilhelm Karl Berg a.k.a. Carlos Berg (Latvian-born director of the Bernardino Rivadavia Natural Sciences Museum in Buenos Aires), Russian entomologist Andrey Avinoff (who prior to being the director of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh was a diplomat in the court of Tsar Nicholas II), and writer Vladimir Nabokov (an aficionado of butterflies). The clothing and accessories of "The Tourist" collection reflect details that are characteristic of the historical wardrobes of these scientists and the most important discoveries in butterfly research. Each outfit of the collection includes a butterfly bow tie as an accessory. The proportions, colours, and textures of the most brilliant butterfly species discovered by these researchers are precisely depicted in the bow ties. "The Tourist" continues the idea of "slow fashion". Outfits are designed using the basic construction principles of menswear, varying from a silhouette similar to that of a classic fitted suit to cuts allowing maximum freedom and comfort. The functionality of the clothing is underlined by natural and durable cotton fabric.
