Herbert James Draper, 1863-1920, The Lament for Icarus, 1898

  • 100% Silk
  • Hand Rolled
  • Designed and Printed in Britain
  • 42cm x 42cm

This classic work is from British painter Herbert James Draper, an artist renowned for his work on Greek mythology. This particular painting depicts the dead Icarus, surrounded by lamenting sea-nymphs. In the classic story, Icarus' father Daedalus made wings made of wax, so that he and his son could escape their island prison on Crete. But, overcome by pride, and ignoring all warnings, Icarus flies too close to the sun, melting his wings and plunging to his death.

Draper's use of the male body for the projection of subjective emotion is a feature of late-Victorian painting and sculpture, while the rays of the setting sun on distant cliffs emphasise the transience of time. The warm colours here work brilliantly against a dark jacket, or can complement a lighter summer ensemble. Draper applied liquid light effects in his painting style, and this allows for subtle highlights when folded. The intricate border design also enables striking point folds

CUSTOMER POCKET SQUARE REVIEWS - TRUSTPILOT

When you look at the images of the pocket squares you imagine them to be good. But when you hold it in your hands and see the intricate details you’re just blown away. Can’t recommend enough. Absolutely a little slice of luxury. Zak - United Kingdom

I just took delivery of my first Rampley pocket square and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled. The quality is far superior to any other pocket squares that I own. The complimentary collar stays were a nice gesture, too. First rate company, first rate product. Trevor - Canada

I have ordered several products from Rampley and Co and in each instance it has been an absolute pleasure. The pocket squares that I have are of unmatched quality with exceptional colour, design and cloth. Even though I am located in Sydney, the customer service (particularly Emily) has been flawless and willing to ‘go the extra mile’. The shipping is very prompt and well presented.

Testimonials

Ben Brewster - The Cuff

Over the past couple years I've become more cognizant of the spark that a well-chosen pocket square can add to tailoring, and the exceptional designs from Rampley & Co are a big reason why. The classic art pictured on each square is undoubtedly the brand's signature appeal, but even smaller details like intricate border patterns and hand-rolled edges give each piece a one-of-a-kind feel.

Linus Norrbom - Menswear Influencer

From a person that feels naked without a pocket square in the chest pocket of my jacket, I can honestly say that Rampley & Co. have changed the way I look upon pocket squares. It is truly a great joy wear a piece of art in your pocket. They feature carefully selected artwork motifs, beautifully printed on high-quality silk and well handcrafted with nice hand-rolled edges.

Jamie Azzopardi - Celebrity Stylist

For the past couple of years I have followed the journey of Rampley & Co and I must say I am such a fan of their work. Their attention to details, fine British construction and ability to uniquely collaborate with an array of businesses, both fashion and art based, not only pulls at my heartstrings, but as a stylist and lifestyle blogger, gives me sincere hope that art and fashion do have a mainstream future together.
