It describes itself as a “distinctive new luxury men’s neckwear experience”. Each necktie is “meticulously handcrafted by seasoned Italian neckwear artisans”. Its About page claims neckwear is the “quintessential gentleman’s accessory”.

Marcelle Love education and career

Love studied fashion design and clothing construction from 1991 to 1994. He then attended the University of the District of Columbia, studying business.

In 2010, he revisited the classroom – or rather, the lecture theatre. He studied electrical, electronic and communications engineering technology at Ashworth University.

Love has been chairman and chief executive of Love Enterprises for almost two and a half years but, whether it’s an asphalt contractor, an excavation firm or a beauty salon remains unclear – Love Enterprises is a pretty common name.

“It started in high school when we had to take standardised testing,” she said. “I didn’t have a category to check off so I became ‘the other’. And it was a joke all through high school that, well, the teachers didn’t know what to do.

“My mother is German-Italian, my father is from Guatemala, but I’m dark skinned. So what does that mean? No one really knew.”
