Design Inspiration: The Green Block Sock

Fortis Green's 'Lewis' green block colour sock is inspired by artist Adolphe Edouard Mouron's 1935 Art Deco poster for the luxury ocean liner SS Normandie, advertising its new transatlantic route from Le Havre in France to New York City. The collection of Art Deco posters Fortis Green has used as inspiration for our first season sock range all centre around a common theme - the luxury and elegance of a new world opened up by the possibility of international travel and early 20th Century society's embracing of the new machine age.
