UK heritage brand Peregrine has just opened a standalone space in London’s Selfridges, on the menswear floor, following its opening a few months ago on Regent Street. The brand is based in Bristol and manufactures in Manchester at its own factory. The shop-in-shop is part of Selfridges’ bold sustainability strategy, Project Earth, which sets out to reinvent retail and change the way we shop and do business by 2025. Peregrine’s earlier Regent Street debut was actually its first standalone store. Selling its men’s, women’s and its soon-to-launch kids’ collections, it opened its doors shortly after the latest lockdown in England ended in the spring. The two openings have come on the brand’s 225th anniversary and to mark that, the brand has also launched new products and collaborations. New is Makers Stitch, a unisex limited-edition 100% washed merino wool jumper with a unique stitch hand-sewn on the hem. Each jumper can be traced back to the individual machinist in their Manchester Factory, highlighting their close relationship with the maker. Also launching this season, are two menswear collaborations with British manufactured brands Goral Shoes, and trouser and oil cloth manufacturer Yarmouth Oilskins. That means a trainer that’s 100% manufactured in the UK in tweed cloth, and a high-waist trouser recreated in corduroy to fit into the men's AW21 nautical-inspired range.
