Rabbits or bunnies are real harbingers of Spring and Easter. This year, why not celebrate the season with some interesting accessories. Rabbits and hares are delightful and enigmatic creatures. It is no surprise that they have played numerous roles in countless stories, movies and nursery rhythms. From books such as Beatrix Potter’s 19th century classic, ‘Peter Rabbit’ , ‘The Velveteen rabbit’ and the white rabbit in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to the irresistible Roger Rabbit in the movie, ‘Who framed Roger Rabbit’ or Thumper who stars in the beloved Disney film, ‘Bambi’, this animal has a distinguished history in literature and film. There is an equally diverse range of rabbit characters here at Joe Cool. The enamel pin brooch sets featured are straight out of a story book while ‘carrot bunny’ earrings make an unusual ‘mismatched’ pair. A tiny enamel stud earring in a choice of black, white, grey or pink is the most perfect encapsulation. In contrast, a large grey flocked rabbit with its embroidered detail and twinkly red eye makes a striking statement piece. Pink rabbit with scarf is yet another take in padded textile.
Rabbits of many different persuasions adorn our current most popular accessory – socks! ‘Rabbit warren’ is a lovely tree green sock with a sedate sitting white rabbit design, ‘sunshine bunnies’ is a more crazy design on bright yellow and ‘animal treats’ is a happy cartoon bunny with carrot pattern. There are rabbit socks with stripes or hearts and a cute ‘sheer’ bunny sock in pink.
More spring things, rabbits and hares included, can be found throughout the collections. Ducks are always an Easter favourite and new socks in mauve are peppered with these delightful water birds. ‘Quackers’ is the name of a delightful duck sock and Rubber duck is a charming watery scene.
Finally, kerchiefs…rabbits again!
