Here at FashionBeans HQ we hold quite a soft spot for London tie specialist, Drakes. Not only because of their stunning range of handmade ties, printed pocket squares and patterned scarves (to name a few), but because you can rest assured that when buying a Drakes accessory, you are receiving a product of extremely high quality; each item undergoes 18 individual quality checks to ensure not even the smallest defect has gone unnoticed.
The latest release from Drakes to hit the virtual shelves over at Mr.Porter are these printed wool and silk blend pocket squares. Both styles are sure to add a splash of unexpected colour to your outfit, as they feature bold multi coloured patterns – made up of navy, green, burgundy and gold tones.
From the two designs, the unanimous favourite here in the FashionBeans office was the Aztec inspired pattern. A pattern that has become a mainstay within menswear season after season, the Aztec print has risen to the top yet again this SS12. However, the reason we are excited by this particular piece is that it is the first time we have seen it utilised on a pocket square. It makes it the ideal way to spruce up and add a distinct edge to your formal wear, whilst allowing you to subtly nod to the current print trend.
