LEGOs

How cute and quirky are these? Nicholas Tee Ruiz started making these creative bow ties while working for The Museum Modern Art (MoMA) in the Special Programming & Events department. The 24-year-old wanted to "look dapper" for museum events and so decided to re-purpose everyday materials into wearable art. In January 2011, he challenged himself to construct 11 unique bow ties designed around the major exhibition openings and benefit events at MoMA that year. Thus began The Bow Tie Collection.

Ruiz has used everything from LEGOs and guitar picks to wine corks and pills. He's now started a Kickstarter campaign to help him open an online store where he can sell these fun works. (The LEGO one is my favorite.)
