The story

Finding your personal style is about creativity. The painting printed in the pocket symbolizes imagination, creation and the link between different forms of art and culture. It also combines dreams and reality. This pocket square is not just a piece of art, but also a reminder that real style is more than what can be seen.

The symposium is an Akseli Gallen-Kallela painting dating back to 1894. The group that appears in the picture is, from left to right,:Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Oskar Merikanto, Robert Kajanus and Jean Sibelius, all of whom ponder the mystery of life and art.

How to wear the symposium pocket square:

The blue and and burgundy colors of the Symposium pocket square make it easy to combine with multiple kinds of outfits. Go for a restrained look with a gray suit, white shirt, blue tie and a classic tv-fold that showcases the burgundy borders. For a more casual and vivid look, wear the square with a sprezzy puff fold with your brown linen sport coat.
