Luxurious…Timeless…Sophisticated

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA– (May 3, 2007) – A great way to show Mom how much you care is to give her something that has lasting meaning.  A Belisi silk scarf is not only luxurious but it also possesses enduring beauty—a keepsake Mom will treasure for years to come. While silk scarves have always represented timeless style, they are especially popular right now.

Belisi Fashions - How to tie a tie - four in hand knot

The Four in Hand Knot makes for a narrow, practical and slightly asymmetrical tie knot. It is very well suited for dress shirts with buttons that pull the collar down tightly around the knot. The larger knots simply won't work with these types of shirts. The four in hand knot is also great if you're in a hurry.

Belisi Fashions - How to tie a tie - Half Windsor Knot

Another "tie question" I get asked all the time is how to tie a tie, especially how to tie the famous Half-Windsor Knot. Well, here's a handy little chart. Tying a tie using this method will produce an extra thick, full knot. One of the benefits of Belisi Neckties is that you don't have to use a Half-Windsor to get a full knot. If you like the Half-Windsor knot, I recommend buying an extra-long tie if you are close to 6 feet tall. Your tie must come to the belt buckle to get a well-finished look.

Belisi Fashions: design nineteen brown by Belisi


Design 19 brown, originally uploaded by peterbelisi.

Designing handbags is a joy. I believe the beauty is in the details. Getting our line from a concept to reality has been a long process. Today is a milestone because this bag is the first version that meets the standards I require for our customers. I view design as exploration combined with tenacity. You have to be creative in the beginning, looking at many different paths, but great design doesn't stop there. Once you start down a creative road, you need to be unwavering in advocating for only the best quality. Design on paper can be a work of art, but there are many more details that make the physical product luxurious. Without tenecity art on the paper will never become art as a product. Many voices tell you to compromise because it will be easier and cheaper. Belisi will only offer what's beautiful. We're betting that you notice.
