Blue is the official colour of Summer 2014.

This season it’s about deep elegant hues, heavily inspired by the colours of the Mediterranean.

This popular shade takes us straight to the warmth of the French Rivera and long hot days ashore.

Blue is a timeless classic, however it is making its way into fashion in a big way this summer, as well as into the wardrobes of many fashionable men.

One of the easiest ways introduce this colour into your look is through your accessories.

Norton & Townsend have an extensive selection of handsome accessories such as ties and cufflinks, chosen from a range of shades from stunning sapphire blue to fresh teal and navy, which brilliantly compliment a crisp white shirt and clean cut tailoring.

With so many great options, it is easy to incorporate this striking colour into any outfit, especially on warm summer days when everything looks lighter and brighter.

The result is an outfit that not only looks sharp in the daytime, but can also be carried through into long summer nights.

Here are some of our favourite picks from the exquisite range of accessories from Norton & Townsend.

All of our cufflinks are designed and hand made by Ian and his partner Sasha in London. The cufflinks are made from fine English pewter before being fully plated in Rhodium and meticulously hand finished to the highest possible standard. All crystals are world-famous Swarovski.

All of our ties are hand-made from 100% silk, cotton and linen. Our collection of classic and contemporary designs comes in both narrow and classic width blades.
