Inspired by luxury liners of the 1920s, this piece envisions the allure of opulence and grandeur in a decadent Art Deco style, integrating bold reds and striking golds. Dynamic shapes from chevrons to arches and concentric circles layering and intertwining amongst black contours.
An expansive square of meticulously designed pure silk. Tightly woven and luxuriously smooth, the vibrant colours pop with a subtle sheen. Refined edges inhibit fray and make the square look great no matter how it is folded and worn.
We encourage you to pair your pocket square with anything you wish. Traditionally, the golds and reds will pair well with darker suits – blacks, greys and blues as a pop of colour. Alternatively, the square ties nicely with burgundy and brown jackets as a monochromatic addition with pizzazz.

We strongly recommend a gentle, cold hand wash and drip dry. Because of the nature of natural and organic fabrics there are small fibres and slubs in the fabric that can lift the print in tiny spots with washing and general wear. Please follow washing instructions to minimise this effect. Do not rub or ring.

In a world changing through rapid globalisation, and life returning to normal after the horrors of war – oceanliners were the epitome of life’s perpetual motion. People embraced living, wealthy leisure-guided world travellers journeying on only the greatest of high-sea style, the equivalent of a floating city. A representation of modernisation and the growth of the human experience.
Art Deco is a architectural, design and visual arts style which first appeared in France following World War I. It influenced the design of buildings, furniture, fashion, jewellery, cars, movie theaters and even household utilities worldwide.
It is a pastiche of various styles, occasionally contradictory, united by an urge for modernity. Attempting to infuse functional objects with artistic touches as a machinist design philosophy, enhancing the appearance of mass-manufactured items. Art Deco embodies influences such as the bold forms of Cubism and Vienna Secession to the bright colours of Fauvism and Ballets Russes collaborating with the exotic foreign styles (to France) of China and Japan, India, Persia, ancient Egypt and Mayan art. Often featuring rare and expensive materials, like ebony and ivory exceptionally crafted.
