Pockets

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?
