Florence, Italy–At Pitti Uomo’s 88th edition, we stumbled on a brand centered around a magical world of flowers and butterflies and 1920s-era men’s wear. Le Loir en Papillon’s designer Mickael Loir makes bow ties and neckties by hand in his atelier in France. He also hand crafts lapel pins and exquisite cuff links using materials like mother of pearl, precious stones, chrysomelidae and real beetles. The grandson of a butterfly farmer, Loir uses the insects he collects for his exquisite garden-inspired collections.

BACO’s Editor in Chief Sofia Celeste chats with Loir in Florence  about his personal style.

ON HIS BRAND: “This is a good time for me because we are not too big and not too small. Are pins are totally unique. Pitti is a good place for my colorful collection.”
