Dirk Bikkembergs Metal Tie Holder Chain
There are few who do accessories quite like Dirk Bikkembergs. This intriguing metal knot tie by the Belgian designer features a minimalistic metal like “holder” allowing the tie to easily glide from a tightened position to a much looser position. This metal insert replaces the traditional knot in a common tie, giving this accessory an unmistakable modern look. Also featured is a silver chain fastened to the back of the metal insert. This chain can be wrapped around the collar, tied to a collar bar or simply left hanging which adds to the dramatic look and interest of this accessory.
Dirk Bikkembergs has become an icon when it comes to punk and avant-garde footwear. His steel cut bungee boot is one of Akaibu's most sought after and requested pieces. Having started his eponymous label in 1987, he had previously released a footwear collection in 1986, which he presented with the rest of the famous Antwerp Six at the British Designer Show in London. To the liking of many Dirk Bikkembergs collectors, the brand has had an impressive resurgence in popularity in recent years, due in part to the traction his striking footwear has received on social media. His passion for sports and performance clothing has led him to buy an Italian lower-league football club by the name of F.C. Fossombrone, allowing the club's players to test out new garments and model his runway shows.
