Aesop's Fables - Eagle and Cockerel
In collaboration with textile designer Angeline Oei of A.Oei Studio, we have designed an original series of 6 pocket squares based on Aesop's fables - tales with morals that have accompanied many of us as children, and remain relevant even as we age.
Made of a lightweight silk printed in Como, our Eagle and Cockerel pocket square features a cream and blue base with autumnal colour accents in brown, orange and green, with plenty of variation in scale and contrast for maximum versatility. Best worn as a nonchalant puff.
Once there were two Cocks living in the same farmyard who could not bear the sight of each other. At last one day they flew up to fight it out, beak and claw. They fought till one of them was beaten and crawled off to a corner to hide.
The Cock that had won the battle flew to the top of the hen-house, and, proudly flapping his wings, crowed with all his might to tell the world about his victory. But an Eagle, circling overhead, heard the boasting chanticleer, swooped down and carried him off to his nest.
His rival saw the deed, came out of his corner and took his place as master of the farmyard.
Pride comes before a fall.
