Rich List

Behold Rose Blake's cover illustration for a 16 page supplement inside The Sunday Times Magazine last weekend. The cover portrays an 'alternative rich list' compiled of 40 people (actually 42 as there are two couples) who are driven by something different- so rich from life and what they do for a living as opposed to just rich from money. What an outstanding array of interesting people - nice work Rose!

Pockets

Rose Blake has collaborated with Drakes and designed a beautiful collection of 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?
