Keep sniffles at bay with Vivienne Westwood kerchiefs from soleDevotion
Whether waving to catch a gent’s attention accompanied by a sweet ‘yoo-hoo’ or as a show of deep emotion as a loved one departs by train, the handkerchief has been symbolic through history, not only for hygiene purposes.
As the winter sniffles approach, having a modern-day hanky on hand as an elegant alternative to tissues can be mighty useful in a hasty paper-kerchief-less moment. However, when the handkerchief in question stems from iconic UK fashion house Vivienne Westwood, you would have to think particularly highly of your nose’s business before sneezing away into such finely cut silk.
Stocked at shoe store soleDevotion on James Street, the latest patterns in the Vivienne Westwood collection of hankies complement signature footwear designs by John Fluevog (Canada), Camper (Spain) and Trippen (Germany) – suggesting perhaps the kerchief is to be worn as a petite neck scarf or knotted around a bag, instead of its traditional use as a sneeze catcher. For the lady who likes a slick suit, borrow a trend from the boys and consider the kerchief a lady pocket square – adding new dimensions to your business attire.
