Inspired since 2007 to bring color to corporate America with whimsical belts looped around the waists of businessmen, Washington, D.C. Tucker Blair is now teaming up with New York-based retailer, Opening Ceremony. Their collection of belts for men and women is a perfect marriage of Tucker Blair's artistry with embroidered leather belts and Opening Ceremony's emphasis on creativity.

Among the collection's five designs is a particularly fitting belt featuring various colorful flags. This international motif references Opening Ceremony's mission of celebrating the work of designers and artists abroad. The other designs include a standard leopard print, an eye-catching geometric pattern and perhaps the most adventurous, quirky white rabbits prancing across a black scene.
