LORD DOTTE S/S '15
Spring is the perfect time to incorporate colour into your wardrobe. If you are the man that prefers a more muted style, then incorporating some brightness via your accessories is a great way to go. With that in mind, I would suggest that your jacket pocket is a great place to start, and that Lord Dotte pocket squares is the brand to go for.
Lord Dotte is one of our favorite accessories brands. Each season sees a new and clever collection, intelligent and considered in its approach and background. For spring, the brand takes its inspiration from The Duke of York. This is an apt choice as there is something regal and majestic about a beautiful silk pocket square.
The Duke of York is the name traditionally given to the second son of the monarchy. As research for this new collection, the designer looked into the highs and lows of the men that held this title. It was their diversity, and other natural elements that held the same title (the humble potato and a variety of fragrant peach blossom) that developed the fluidity and stark colours to these print designs. So, how does one use these abstract concepts to design pocket squares? Using floral cross sections, a series of prints were created with linear elements added to provide structure and rigidity.
These squares will give your pockets the much-needed dash of colour that they have been aching for. Looking at the full collection, we are particularly fond of the Edward of Norwich, James Stuart and Prince Edward designs. The brand has experienced great growth over the last 12 months, with a growing collection of long scarves. Made from 100% silk (as are the squares) we are particularly fond of the incredibly beautiful “MK” printed square scarf design.
Pocket squares from £40 and scarves from £75. Find out more at Lord Dotte.
