Harris Wharf London is a contemporary outerwear brand that reimagines classic formalwear. Based in London but produced in Turin, the label is infused with London sensibilities. Tailored coats and blazers are sophisticated and cast in a range of muted colours as well as bold brights and come in a variety of felted wools and cashmeres. All of the brands outerwear features raw edges and are unlined to give them a youthful take on traditional tailoring.
Harris Wharf London is a family business run by two siblings. Aldo Acchiardi, who oversees production and distribution, and Giulia Acchiardi, the designer. Using their grandfather’s glove-making factory in Turin, all of their collection is produced in Italy, made from only Italian fabrics.
In 2009, the Acchiardi’s opened their first store, WORKSHOP in 19 Camden Passage with the launch of their first ‘Harris Wharf London’ collection for Autumn/Winter 2010. Having roots in London enabled the brand to grow and develop their business by working personally with the consumer. Since 2009 the brand has been picked up by concept & department stores around the world such as Dover Street Market, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue or Net-a-porter amongst others.
Harris Wharf London recently opened its second Workshop store on 295 Westbourne Grove, in Notting Hill.
