Depicting a different moment of the early life of Achilles in each panel, this pocket square takes its design from a decorative scheme for a grand house in Paris by Charles-Louis Clérisseau, now housed in the V&A’s Europe galleries. It was the first French Neoclassical interior to feature ‘grotesques’. It includes vases, medallions and friezes framed by a symmetrical structure. Clérisseau studied in Rome and recorded many ancient monuments. His work influenced the Neoclassical style.

A detailed pocket square that is highly versatile due to its off-white base colour, adding hints of detail to a puff fold and utilising the corner design well in a pointed fold.
