Harry Rosen collaborates with acclaimed artist Gary Taxali
on Canadiana-themed pocket square collection
This fall, Harry Rosen introduces a new collection of five special-edition pocket squares designed by Canadian artist Gary Taxali.
The 100% silk pocket squares, created exclusively for Canada’s premiere menswear retailer, Harry Rosen, will be available in select stores across Canada and online at www.harryrosen.com on Saturday, November 2, 2013. The collection will be launched with a special in-store signing by the artist at Harry Rosen’s flagship store in Toronto at 82 Bloor St W on Saturday November 2nd from 4 to 6 PM.
Celebrating the culturally-rich heritage of Canada and featured cities – Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver, each of Taxali’s unique designs plays off of the character, culture and landmarks of each city. The result is a colourful and comical, yet highly wearable, collector’s item.
“I was inspired by how diverse our Canadian cities are, and I tried to capture the different moods and stories of Canadian life in a playful way,” says artist Gary Taxali.
Each piece of artwork is reproduced on high-quality Italian silk, with hand rolled and stitched edges creating a fluid canvas that Gary says “shows that fashion is art and art can be fashion.”
Gary Taxali is an award-winning illustrator whose work has appeared in GQ, Esquire and Rolling Stone. He visually blends now with then, drawing influence from vintage comics and advertising art to communicate the ironies and comical essence of pop culture.
“We’re passionate about pocket squares,” says Larry Rosen, CEO, Harry Rosen Inc. “It’s important for men to inject some playful elements into their wardrobe, and these unique artist-designed accessories pack a lot of personality.”
The Gary Taxali for Unfamous Pocket Square will retail for $95.
