To commemorate 100 years since the death of Gustav Klimt we're delighted to have launched a collection of three stunning pocket squares. This Portrait of Emilie Flöge, painted in 1902, was the first to present her as a bejewelled icon, a gilded beauty whose decorative trappings constitute a metaphorical chastity belt. Directly anticipating the "gold" portraits of 1906-1907, the picture was exceedingly radical for its day and works beautifully in this instance as a pocket square, providing a pattern of colour and design that provides variation and vibrancy when worn in the pocket.
