London and Turin, two cities key to the success of Harris Wharf London. Siblings Giulia and Aldo Acchiardi, following their studies in London respectively for design and business, founded the collection Harris Wharf London, named after the location where they resided. Harris Wharf London is a British contemporary brand that reimagines classic formalwear and outerwear. The collection is produced in what was originally their great grandfather’s glove making factory in Turin. The label launched in 2010 after the opening of their multibrand shop “Workshop” in Angel (Islington, London).
A jersey-focused collection, minimal and understated, featuring unlined and raw edged outerwear with an effortless take on traditional cuts and shapes. The most crucial aspect in the designing of the collection is the range of high quality Italian and Japanese fabrics. Amongst these Polaire, a unique pile fabric exclusive to and produced by Harris Wharf London.
Harris Wharf London only produce to order meaning there is never any stock left over. The cutting system automatically allows to maximise efficiency of fabric consumption thus reducing drastically the waste of fabric. Any fabric leftovers are then given to a highly specialized company for recycling into new yarn, wadding or insulation.All fabrics used are Azo and Reach compliant.
