Marguerite, A Limited Edition Pocket Square Inspired By Alphonse Mucha and Jessica Rabbit

Marguerite has taken a long time to come to fruition. We started working on her some time ago. I found an illustrator on Instagram by the name of Alex Garcia in Los Angeles and I approached him with my goal. Garcia was wonderful at creating cartoon like imagery, which you can see here , but my goal was to fuse that skill set with the ornate and lasting imagery of Alphonse Mucha , the great image and brand 'taste maker' of the  Belle Époque period famous for making posters for Sarah Bernhardt as well as Moët & Chandon and cigarette companies.

So the brief became "I want Jessica Rabbit and an ethereal Mucha inspired beauty to merge into one pocket square". My own initial sketches has been done on Procreate on my iPad, none of which were worthy. I was very happy to have found Garcia.

I am very happy with the result.

You can pre-order the pocket square for delivery in early 2016. We envisage that we will probably run three colour ways but to begin with this is the only one on offer. No more than 150 will be produced before we move onto our next design.

As for the La Belle Dame sirens pocket square, we have received a number of requests for us to re-do these squares which we will consider running in a new colourway in 2016 but our main concern for the moment is seeing that Marguerite see the light of day, or the darkness of your breast pocket.
