Kent Wang’s Japanese Inspiration For Pocket Squares

JAPANESE-POCKET-SQUARES

Kent Wang’s new crop of original pocket squares is now available. Some of these new squares build on the Japanese theme started when Kent introduced The Great Wave pocket square awhile back, an image taken from the iconic woodblock print by Hokusai.

This season we particularly like the View of Edo pocket square with a scene sourced from a 17th century gilded folding screen as well as the ukiyo-e image used of actor Danjuro IX as Soga Goro by Kunichika.

The View of Edo images comes from a 17th century gilded folding screen depicting feudal era Tokyo during the reign of the third shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu.
