The geometric inspiration, the symmetry and the study of pleats combine with the flow of the fabric and the perfection of the details.
PRINCE
Details define the world. Accessories enhance style. “Mani del Sud” bow ties are the result of a will to pursue the elegance, the feelings and the emotions of tradition, bringing them boldly into a modern context, and turning them into the element that redefines style.

MANI DEL SUD N°6 
A classic shape, a very special accessory: for MANI DEL SUD the bow tie is the detail that a man chooses to wear because it is the perfect expression of the essence of a moment, of a feeling, of a state of mind; the ideal accessory to define his personality at that very moment.

LIFE STYLE
MATERIALS
DETAILS
Men flaunt it proudly, because a simple bow has become an unquestioned symbol of formal elegance and class. How can a symbol become something more?
Raffaele Stella Brienza chooses to restore the importance of simple materials: fabrics designed to set off and embellish the inside of sartorial garments become the #1 material of the most precious accessory in the outfit.  
Classic forms are embellished by details that redefine their style.

“ONCE GROWN UP, THOSE EYES LOOKED AGAIN OUT OF A WINDOW OF MEMORIES TO CAPTURE THEIR ESSENCE, SOAK UP THE EMOTION AND BRING THE FLAVOUR OF TRADITION TO THE MODERN TASTE”

Mani del Sud means tradition, but even more it means manual skills and experimentation. With 10 years’ experience in the fashion industry, Raffaele Stella Brienza has developed the ability to translate a world of values and tradition into a new context, where experimentation with materials and experimentation with style blend: once grown up in a different world – the innovative, rapidly evolving world of fashion – those eyes turned back to their own origins with greater awareness and maturity. Eyes that know how to reimagine the tradition and present it to the modern taste.

MY ORDINARY CHIC           
There was a time when it was just a bow, a tied ribbon that tied up the collars of mercenary soldiers. It was in the French salons that a practical need became a whim and what had been a mere bow became the Papillon: the bow tie for the important occasions.

KING
“AND ON THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF HIS LIFE HE LOOKED PROUDLY AT HIMSELF IN THE MIRROR, AND FELT READY AT LAST TO WALK HIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL TO THE ALTAR.”
Details define the world, and Mani del Sud expresses and represents them, finding in the study of form the most effective way to restore their importance. Inspiration comes from the past, where Raffaele Stella Brienza has retrieved one item in particular: the bow tie, and the world of values associated to it. He has revisited it with loving but practical eyes that know how and where, today, that little piece of tradition will look just perfect.
