The Artist Collection

Posted 23.11.18 - Craft

Celebrating art and individuality, we collaborated with six artists for a new set of limited edition pocket squares.

We commissioned six up-and-coming artists to create a set of limited edition pocket squares, treating the 45cm x 45cm silk square as their canvas. Celebrating various print styles and techniques, the artists were asked to design a pocket square especially for the British heritage brand that summed up their individual style and character.

This collection is intended to offer our clientele and valued customers a new take on a classic product, through use of colour and pattern which has been central to our aesthetic over the years. The Artist Collection epitomises this approach to design: individual, characterful and bold designs, intended to appeal to a range of personalities.

With six pocket squares ready to be turned into art, we worked with illustrators Charlotte Trounce, Daniel Clarke, Toby Triumph, Quentin Monge, Matthew Schofield and Clare Curtis. Each artists has a distinctly individual style, but collectively the pocket squares are harmonious as part of the Artist Collection. The pocket squares were printed at Adamley Textiles, UK.

“This project highlights how different artistic styles can harmonise together so beautifully. The artists’ unique styles bring the Turnbull and Asser silk square to life, adding vibrant energy to someone’s pocket, or even wall.” says Turnbull & Asser’s head of design, Becky French.

The collection will consist of six pocket squares, in a limited run of 28 per design, and is available online and in-store now. Next up in our Off The Cuff series, we sit down with all of the artists and get insight into how they created the pocket squares.
