Catherine and Nick, the British couple behind the label, were inspired by a trip they took to Peru. Catherine made the decision to leave her career in corporate fashion, Nick having done the same some years prior. She had studied Fashion Textiles at the prestigious Central Saint Martins and then Knitwear at the University of Brighton, then designing knitwear for Calvin Klein, Anne Klein and Club Monaco, where she was, most recently, Senior Director of Knitwear. Nick studied at the London College of Fashion and was a Men’s fashion buyer for many years.
Inspired by Peru’s rich heritage of craftsmanship in textiles, modern separates are created from the finest spun Alpaca yarns and Peruvian pima cottons. Intended to be worn cross - seasonally, these core neutrals allow the women to compose a wardrobe that allows for just that.
The majority of the knitwear is manufactured in Peru.
