Love is Strange x Tie The Knot Collaboration


The three limited-edition, one-of-a-kind bow ties are designed by John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, and Ira Sachs


Ira Sachs's movie, Love Is Strange, released last year was one of the sweetest depictions of a same-sex couple's romance and a late-in-life marriage -- and the unexpected repurcussions --with John Lithgow and Alfred Molina playing the gay New York couple with tenderness and a realism . Now, with the release of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, Sachs, Lithgow, and Molina have teamed up with Tie the Knot, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita's marriage equality movement charity, on a limited-edition of three bow ties designed by the trio.

According to the press release:

  • The Sachs-Torres is inspired by the iconic gay bar, Julius in New York City's West Village, in which a poignant scene from the film is set. It features interlocking, stylized "J"s with a light blue base and various shades of pink, expressing a collaboration between Ira and his husband Boris Torres.
  • Inspired by his character Ben and his love for art, The John Lithgow features bold, abstract combinations of colors similar to the styles of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning.
  • Inspired by his character George, a music teacher, The Alfred Molina features Frederic Chopin, whose music scores the film, finished in the colorful style of an Andy Warhol piece.


The bow ties, which retail for $25 each, are now available exclusively at The Tie Bar. Proceeds from the sale of the bow ties will go to various organizations that are fighting for the civil rights of gays and lesbians every single day, as well as to fund Tie The Knot's international public education campaign to help continue to move the dial in support of marriage equality.
