Peers Hardy’s triumphant new vintage brand Henry London signed up 24 new doors at the Company of Master Jewellers’ trade event in August last year, before it even officially launched to the market in October 2015.
Since then the homegrown brand has gone from strength to strength, not just in the UK but worldwide. As we go to print, Peers Hardy is in the final stages of signing another 30 partners, with plans to make Henry London the next global brand over the next five years by expanding its reach and driving worldwide consumer demand.
“We could already have been in 70 countries with Henry London but have learnt that it is best to take time to ensure the best partners from the outset that can join in the development and building of the brand,” explains Harry. “There will be much more travelling in the year ahead to visit each market and select the very best partners for our brands.”
Henry London has not been Paul Harry’s only pride and joy over the last 12 months though as his wife welcomed another baby girl to the family.
“Now our elder daughter Florence will have someone else to play with and won’t have to try to hide in my case on my many international trips with Henry London,” says Harry.
Due to Peers Hardy’s desire for rapid international expansion and longing to choose the very best partners, Harry will need to continue living out of a suitcase for some time to come, which is why he chose this very apt photoshoot for his Hot 100 profile.
Alongside Henry London, Peers Hardy also launched Orla Kiely Time in the UK and internationally and continued to develop its core branded business alongside the re-launch of Ice-Watch where the addition of Disney designs generated a record 12 months in the company’s history.
