To commemorate 100 years since the death of Gustav Klimt we're delighted to have launched a collection of three stunning pocket squares. Gustav Klimt's use of classical myth iconography is directly derivative of antiquity in his many images of Athena. The outstanding image of this goddess is his Pallas Athene of 1898. She is strikingly different from his reknowned femmes fatales whose sexuality is overwhelming. Here it is the divinity which Klimt finds more interesting, rather than her sexuality, not surprising given the gender ambiguities she demonstrated in Greek antiquity. A striking and bold image that sits wonderfully in our collection and beutifully versatile in the pocket.
