MoMA-Inspired Bow Ties

Thom Browne's triumphant FW12 collection, a film made by a sleepwalker, exploding food and more in our look at the web this week

Nicholas Ruiz began making himself bow ties to wear to exhibition openings for his job in special events at the MoMA, inspired by the artists on display. After his initial run of 11 bespoke creations, Ruiz realized he had a potential business on his hands and, in a nod to his Queens neighborhood, named it Made in Forest Hills. The mix spans a guitar pic tie inspired by Picasso and a style made from wine corks gathered from the restaurants of his favorite chef Jose Garces.
