Don't let your life roll over you! Sometimes we have to break hardly. In such cases on highways the tracks of the wheels seem to end suddenly. On this tie, named Heavy Tracker, it becomes a camouflage.
The Swedish designer created for Ulterior Motive three ties under the title TURBO for the ones who love speed:
"For a long time now, I have wanted to incorporate my fascination for cars in a fashion context. With This in view, I created a laddish collection of men's clothes, referring closely to words such as masculinity and horsepower. The focus is on broad shoulders and mechanical prints, with an aggressive surface tempered by a dose of classic tailored silhouettes." more motor >>>
