Rose Blake has collaborated with Drakes and designed a beautiful collection fo pocket squares. Blake’s concept was to create a range of pocket squares that both reflect and could be worn by a series of different Drake’s-wearing men.
“I came up with these six characters that would potentially wear Drake’s collections, which were the Seafarer, the Globetrotter, the Creator, the Thinker, the Stargazer and the Explorer. I made a pocket square for each character. And then I kind of had the idea that, because each character is linked in a certain way, other than them wearing Drake’s, they’re all linked by the sun or the moon.”
Which are you?

We'd like to give our warmest welcome to CIA artist Whooli Chen. Whooli's portfolio is flourishing with imagination captured in a delicacy that we can only begin to fathom.
