Creative bow ties and accessories by LE COLONEL MOUTARDE

And it was Colonel Moutarde...in Truman Brewery...with the candlestick...sorry, a bit distracted here by THE most magnifique bow ties. 
We are delighted to welcome Lille-born, Le Colonel Moutarde, to our London 2016 Show. Without a doubt, the bow tie is BACK!

But it hasn't all been plain sailing. In fact, it all started with a frustration; Remi had a tough time finding a bow tie to his taste, so he decided to design and sew his own! 

         Le Colonel Moutarde å Londres!
His passion for sewing was passed on by his mother and grandmother and his home soon became a permanent exhibition of bow ties. His partner Clémence decided to create a blog to offer them for sale and, hey presto, Colonel Moutarde was born, ready to present its most beautiful creations. 

Today the Colonel is proud to have the largest collection of bow ties in France. And they don't just do bowties, they do pocket squares, boxer shorts, cuff links and braces too - for Most Curious grooms with style.

And we have the most exciting news for all you UK based grooms - Le Colonel Moutarde have just opened their UK flagship store at 10 Cheshire Street, London E2 6EHliterally just around the corner from our Brick Lane-based London show!

Talk us through a typical day in your life.

Every day I come to the shop at 10:00 - I'm not a early riser...
For most of the day, I deal with questions from grooms by phone, email or in person at our shop, helping them to find their perfect bow tie.

Then I work on social networks to show our recent creations - @lecolonelmoutardeAnother big part of my work is sourcing perfect fabrics with tiny patterns - my favourite! Obviously, there is also the worst part  - the admin.

Who or what is inspiring you right now?

I love the japanese prints, which are a mix of classic & modern patterns, they are perfect for a modern groom.

We just came from Les Cyclades and all the blues were amazing, colour is a big part of our collections.

Describe a LE COLONEL MOUTARDE groom.
Usually it is the groom, but many times it's the bride who makes the choice because she wants everything to go together and the men's accessories are the final touch.
Le Colonel Moutarde groom is a cool guy, who lives in keeping with his time. He 's not afraid of colours and he doesn't take himself too seriously.
