For the very first time, The Jockey Club have offered access to their historic art collection for us to develop into a wearable collection. Working together we’ve selected three stunning artworks depicting different moments of British horseracing to feature on our pocket squares.
Firstly, we have Sceptre at Newmarket, here we see the British thoroughbred competing in the Newmarket race which she won in 1901 and again in 1902 with a then-record time of 1 minute 39 seconds. This piece works wonderfully if you’re looking for a square with a lot of off-white, to stand out when worn with a darker jacket.
Secondly, we have Persimmon Winning, Persimmon was Sceptre’s sire, bred by the Prince of Wales, he went on to win several races including the 1896 Epsom Derby. Notably this artwork is predominantly painted in blues and would pair beautifully with a tonal look.
Lastly, we have Sandown Park Lawn 1884, the historic course was the first purpose-built racecourse, opening in 1875. This artwork boasts an array of brown tones and would look excellent with a tweed jacket.
This new collaboration features images from a selection of beautiful artworks and we very much hope you enjoy wearing it.
All of our pocket squares are produced using the highest quality Mulberry silk and printed in Macclesfield in northern England utilising a specific weight that means you get an almost identical print on the back of the square our edges are all then hand-rolled to ensure the most Exquisite finish possible and to guarantee the square will hold its shape and position in the pocket
