The Dragon - No. 5 of 12 in our Chinese Zodiac series
Dragons are born leaders. High and mighty, those born in the year of the Dragon are perfectionists armed with unsurmountable determination. They are an enthusiastic bunch, but lose their temper easily.
Vanda Fine Clothing Presents the Chinese Zodiac
In celebration of our second anniversary, we have been working on a collaboration with Singaporean award-winning illustrator, Edward Chan, for the past six months on our first series of original pocket square designs.
Based on the animals of the Chinese zodiac, the series of 12 silk pocket squares are inspired by the intricate beauty of traditional Chinese paper cuttings. Combining the best of Edwardʼs design genius and our expertise in pocket squares, the designs have been laid out with functionality, versatility, and beauty in mind.
Printed on a luxurious 14 momme silk twill quality in Como, Italy, these 15 inch (38cm) large pocket squares are proudly made in our own workshop in Singapore.
Starting today, we will release a daily sneak preview of the 12 animals leading up to the launch. We begin with the first animal sign in the Chinese zodiac, the Rat.
Legend has it that Buddha called together a meeting comprising the twelve animals of the zodiac for a power powwow and the rat showed up first. To reward the Rat, Buddha awarded him the honor of being the first sign of the Chinese zodiac!
»Yuppies raus!«, heißt es in Hamburg-Altona und Berlin-Neukölln an jeder siebten Hauswand. »Yuppies welcome!«, müsste es in Detroit heißen. Das Problem ist die massive De-Gentrifizierung.
Quit playing games with my heart.
"Hämorrhoiden auch, oder was?"
After watching this video dogs rose in my estimation (if that’s possible). I think I like the long-haired guys best.
Something incredibly fantastic lies ahead of us.
