Maybe it’s the recent resurgence of ’80s touchstones like Ettore Sottsass’ Memphis movement and Jeff Koons that have us lusting after designs that blend play and sophistication, but there is something undeniably appealing about Australian menswear line P. Johnson Tailors’ collection of colorful pocket squares. Inspired by everything from Clip Art to Surrealism, the 100% silk accessories offer a cheeky way to spruce up a tailored number without any fuss.
The squares come in a wide range of patterns and designs including lobsters, pineapples, desert vistas and magic carpets as well as solids—so matching is just as easy as mismatching. It’s hard to imagine Sottsass and his contemporaries wouldn’t give the line their stamp of approval.
P. Johnson Tailors’ pocket squares are 40cm x 40cm and sell for $75 online. Be sure to check out all their other offerings—from ties to swim shorts—there too.
