This vintage Romero Britto necktie from 1999 is brand new; it comes with its original plastic sleeve and has never been used. Made of 100% silk, the tie was designed for the 1999 Montreux Jazz Festival. Representing the exception that proves the rule, the image for the 1999 Festival used a landscape format, like a film poster, and does in fact recall a scene from a musical comedy - perhaps The Jazz Singer, with the sax also featured. But the design is drenched in a forceful multi-coloured storm and immersed in sprays of hearts and an outpouring of happiness. The tie's designer, Brazilian painter Romero Britto, perfectly summed up his artistic vision in an interview as "resolutely optimistic".
Britto lives in Miami, and his art celebrates joy and mass culture. Claude Nobs invited him to attend the Festival that year, and the artist made the most of his trip by painting a mural on the walls of the old Festival offices in Territet during a workshop. A gorgeous Britto tie that's both a fashion statement and a piece of vibrant art.
