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.
While the dominant colors of this beautiful pocket square are vibrant, bold and modern – from a fire orange background to flashes of turquoise, purple and yellow – the overall effect fits very elegantly with the heraldic lion and unicorn motif, being reminiscent of fluttering flags at a jousting tournament. Despite that, this silk pocket square is one very much belonging to the modern high street, seamlessly blending and playing with the juxtaposition of distant past and dynamic present. Pair this stunning suit accessory with a black suit, white shirt and ruby red bow tie combination for a truly striking look.
