When it comes to sartorial elegance and excellence, Great Britain is a very good place to start. This small island, although no longer the rulers of the waves they once were, still know the importance of dressing as though they are on top of the world, and doing so with a knowing wink which blends the past with the present. This beautifully illustrated pocket square features the heraldic symbol of the lion and the unicorn, fighting over the British crown, on a colorful, typically extravagant background of contrasting colors and decadent patterning. Not only is this the crest of the United Kingdom, but it is also a fantastical, fascinating design in itself: the lion, symbol of England, represents pride, strength, rulership. The Unicorn is the emblem of Scotland, and stands for purity, power, inventiveness and imagination. This high quality silk pocket square is ideal for those who look to times gone by for their concept of sophistication, and who pair an old-world sense of style with a decidedly post-modern, avant-garde approach to high street fashion.
The combination of the arctic blue and Tuscan yellow on this pocket square, along with the delicate salmon pink hand-rolled hem is a stunning use of color, perfect for those who do not shy away from making bold statements with their avant-garde fashion choices. By bringing together the vintage charm of the British lion and unicorn crest with a decidedly modern set of hues, the designer of this stylish pocket square is seeking to redefine what sophistication means on the 21st century high street. Versatile and flexible, this pocket handkerchief would be best paired with a grey blazer, a pale blue shirt and a pair of navy blue jeans.
