Design & Inspiration: ‘Victory At Last’ is a colourful and high-quality, full-size silk pocket square and has been created in collaboration with leading ‘painter of speed’ John Ketchell. His semi-abstract impressionist style captures speed and drama at the same time as delivering accuracy of reproduction, such that the subject seems to burst into life.
For the original acrylic on canvas work, John was inspired by the famous moment in motorsport history when Aston Martin won Le Mans outright in 1959. In the race, the DBR1 of Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby finally achieved victory for Aston Martin, which had entered every Le Mans since 1931.
The artwork is reproduced with a good balance of colour between the printed and reverse sides of the silk pocket square to work perfectly with any pocket square fold. The image is framed by the classic motor racing pocket square’s pale green border and racing green hand-rolled & hand-sewn hem.
The 'Victory At Last' art design pocket square in its complimentary gift box makes a unique and stylish motor racing gift for men who are fans of classic motor racing. Perfect for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or simply as a thank you. Inside each smart Otway & Orford gift box with its blueberry-coloured lid and pale blue base, the silk pocket square has been carefully wrapped in tissue and is accompanied by a card telling the story of the artist and his vibrant and stirring artwork.
Size: A full-size silk pocket square, approximately 42cm x 42cm (16.5” x 16.5”). Dimensions may vary slightly following the printing and manufacturing process as silk is a natural material.
Material Composition & Care: 100% Mulberry silk is woven into 15oz silk twill, which is used for its look and feel as well as to ensure the pocket square sits perfectly in the top pocket.
Silk should always be dry cleaned by reputable dry cleaners. Avoid pressing the hand-finished hem of the pocket square in order to preserve the hem’s distinctive 'shoestring' shape and character.
