Hand printed in England on 100% pure silk, the Buzzcocks Orgasm Addict Pocket Square has been created as part of an exclusive collaboration between Design Manchester and Private White V.C.
The design is a reproduction of the record sleeve for the single Orgasm Addict by Manchester’s godfathers of punk pop, which was released on the United Artists label in November 1977. As part of his design, Malcolm Garrett – then still a student at Manchester Polytechnic – took a montage by his friend, the artist Linder Sterling, and turned it upside down in a stark graphic composition. The design was featured in the V&A’s 2011 Postmodernism exhibition.
The Buzzcocks Orgasm Addict pocket square is 42cm x 42cm and can be worn as a pocket square or small neckerchief. It comes in a presentation gift box with numbered edition sticker.
