At Brackish, we take great pride in creating exceptional accessories that elevate personal style with their unique craftsmanship and unparalleled sophistication. We are honored to have had our pieces worn by some of the most renowned celebrities, who share the appreciation for the artistry and attention to detail that goes into our work. Join us as we highlight the recent sightings of these celeb-approved accessories.
Blake Lively, fashion and beauty icon, actress, and owner of non-alcoholic sparkling mixer brand Betty Buzz, recently launched a new line of gourmet canned cocktails, appropriately named Betty Booze. In the stunning campaign photos for the launch of her new brand, Lively is seen wearing our very own Carew bow tie.
Meticulously handcrafted by our artisans, the Carew effortlessly combines crisp white goose feathers with a voluminous technique, resulting in an accessory that commands attention while exuding elegance. This, however, is not the first time Lively has confidently executed the male dominated fashion accessory of a Brackish bow tie. In 2018, she wore a now discontinued peacock feather tie during her A Simple Favor press tour.
Stepping into the world of television, the talented Don Cheadle recently sported our Guinea bow tie from his personal collection in a captivating episode of the hit show “Dave” where he amongst other guest stars attended the Met Gala. Though theatrical red carpet events are not the only place Cheadle has been seen wearing Brackish. He has been seen wearing some of his Brackish feather-favorites at the Oscars, Emmys, Venice International Film Festival, and more.
Cheadle’s refined sense of style perfectly complements the distinctive natural pattern of guinea feathers that are purposefully placed to create the complex yet symmetrical design of the Guinea bow tie. He has also been seen wearing our quail feather Grey Bobwhite and goose feather Carew, creating quite the collection.
Bill Murray, the iconic actor whose talent knows no bounds, chose to wear our Blue Chuka bow tie at the prestigious SAG Awards this year. The Blue Chuka captures the essence of classic elegance with a unique twist, featuring a captivating blend of blue, brown, taupe and cream hues from natural partridge feathers.
Murray is no stranger to Brackish– he has been spotted many times flaunting his feathers as early as 2014, when he presented an award at the Oscars for Best Cinematography with Amy Adams.
In the latest season of the hit television series “Yellowstone”, Gil Birmingham’s character Thomas Rainwater can be seen wearing our Twilight Plum Thicket Pin upon his lapel. The dramatic nature of the series matches that of this small, but statement-making accessory crafted with vibrant blue peacock feathers and contrasting guinea dots.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
NASCAR Driver and 2023 Daytona 500 winner Ricky Stenhouse Jr. recently wore our best-selling Rice bow tie on his special day to marry his now wife Madyson at a charming Charleston, SC wedding. His choice reflected classic southern charm and sophistication with jet black, voluminous goose feathers that add a timeless twist to the traditional black bow tie.
TODAY show host Craig Melvin recently wore our River Wind bow tie during Al Roker’s Induction to the Broadcasting + Cable Hall of Fame. The River Wind’s striking combination of pheasant and guinea feathers exude a look of class and distinction– two qualities that both Melvin and Roker embody themselves.
Melvin is a long-time fan of Brackish himself, supporting his fellow Wofford College alumni, our co-founders Ben and Jeff. Melvin has worn various feather accessories throughout the years and even welcomed us on the TODAY show in 2021 for a holiday gifting segment.
Avid adventurer and Discovery Channel host, Forrest Galante embraced the allure of guinea feathers and opted for a full ensemble at the Annual Explorers Club Event. Galante donned the Gatsby bow tie, Bear Cufflink & Stud Set, and Guinea 2.0 Pocket Square. This carefully curated collection of all natural guinea feathers captures Galante’s love and appreciation for nature.
We are incredibly grateful for the exposure that each and every one of these wonderful people have given Brackish. Their support is a testament to our unwavering commitment to repurpose the beauty of mother nature into unique, handcrafted pieces of wearable art that embody sophistication and individuality.
