Life is defined by conflict, and it is the mark of the modern, streetwise individual to rise above it, and to use their wits and wisdom to avoid it. No matter what one’s personal feelings regarding warfare may be, there is little disputing the fact that history has been shaped and forged on the battlefield, and the influence of this has always been far-reaching. Military motifs have long since found their way into the worlds of art and fashion, and many of the great artistic treasures of the ancient world were either the spoils of war, or were made in response to it. This stunning silk pocket square depicts a stylized view of the heat of some Mughal battle; trumpets are calling, spears are raised, and mighty steeds in livery are carrying their cavaliers. Beautifully designed, this high quality pocket square effortlessly blends the artistic styles of Norman France with the colors and perspectives of Indian Moghul painting, resulting in an effect which is gorgeously exotic, transglobal, timeless, and pleasing to the eye. This fine pocket square would suit somebody seeking a truly unique piece of artwork with which to accessorize their outfit, and somebody who knows that a well chosen handkerchief is a vital component of their everyday suit of armor.
There are few color combinations which complement each other quite so strikingly as the yam orange we find on the hem of this pocket square, and the deep blue color which dominates the background of the design. The overall effect – with the battle scene picked out in lavender, sky blue and pink – is one of absolute beauty, sophistication and genuine artistry in design. To create an even stronger impression with this pocket square, wear it folded into the top pocket of a blue blazer, worn with a white shirt, a pair of navy blue jeans, and a lavender bow tie.
