Lobo Marinho

Having recently launched a limited edition with Monocle magazine, Lobo Marinho is a Portuguese brand of pocket squares. Created by the young André Marinho, the brand is an excellent example of a family collaboration and passing of knowledge, since all scarves are manufactured by the grandmother of the founder in a traditional sewing machine. Choosing the best Portuguese and Indian fabrics with unique patterns, André is “always looking for patterns that have analternative illustrative component, but sober at the same time, and always running from the classic paisleys,” as stated in an interview for the online newspaper Observador.
As the amusing names of the pocket squares, the collection was designed for a more relaxed style, inverting the logic to be a very formal accessory. “My intention with this revival is loosen the pocket square from the habit of using it in a formal context, that is still synonymous, to be used day-to-day in a casual outfit, with a sports jacket, jeans and a Stan Smith sneakers, for example,” says André.
In addition to the limited edition with Monocle, we love the Mr. Oiseau pocket square with its swallows pattern and the colorful Mr. Veggie and Mr. Kolkata.
