    Peregrine, Managing Director, Tom Glover

    The story of British knitwear brand Peregrine dates back to 1796 and, eight generations down the line, these days it's run by Tom Glover, who joined the business after graduating in design back in 2003. He set about re-establishing the Peregrine brand with clean, contemporary designs - adding shirts, outerwear and accessories, impressively all made in England as the company always has.
    Today Peregrine is stocked in over 80 different retailers across the UK, as well as in shops in Germany, Iceland, Canada and the USA. 
    In April this year, the brand opened its first ever store at 78 Regent Street, and added a pop-up shop-in-shop in Selfridges at the end of October, provisionally set to run for nine months, forming part of the iconic retailer’s Project Earth strategy. 
    Based in Bristol and with their own factory in Manchester, Peregrine controls every element of garment production from start to finish ensuring both full traceability and quality assurance.
    Alongside its retail growth and developments, the brand is marking its considerable 225-year anniversary milestone with new products and collaborations, including with fellow British manufacturers Goral Shoes and Yarmouth Oilskins. Tom Glover tells us all about it.

    IN DETAIL: Retail's Pop-up boom with Shaftesbury's Emma Steele

    IN DETAIL: Retail's Pop-up boom with Shaftesbury's Emma Steele

    Pop-up retail has boomed post pandemic as vacancies have opened up in high streets and major shopping destinations across the country.
    Greater flexibility from landlords has meant that smaller brands who haven’t yet ventured into the physical realm have had the chance to test the waters, big brands have been able to trial new locations and even non-retail brands have been able to exploit the marketing power of a temporary high street presence.
    London landlord Shaftesbury – whose 16-acre estate covers eclectic London neighbourhoods stretching across Seven Dials, parts of Covent Garden, Carnaby and Soho among others – has always championed pop-ups across its estate.
    As far back as 20 years ago it was introducing pop-ups to bring vibrancy, footfall and press opportunities to its London villages, and also to inspire longer-term tenants.
    In this special edition of our In Detail podcast, Lauretta Roberts Editor in Chief of TheIndustry.fashion - speaks to Shaftesbury’s Emma Steele who heads up pop-up opportunities across its estate and also to three enterprising brands who have successfully popped-up on the estate (often more than once) to learn how the experience enhanced their business, including an ethical fashion start-up, a leading charity and one of the UK’s best known music acts.

    Hype Co-founders, Bav Samani and Liam Green

    Hype Co-founders, Bav Samani and Liam Green

    Hype was founded 10 years ago this year by Bav Samani and Liam Green. Their first product was a rather rude statement cigarette lighter, followed by a T-shirt featuring a defaced Albert Einstein complete with nose ring, ear stretchers and tattoos, which sold out in hours. 
    The pair had met while working at a graphic design and T-shirt printing company in Leicester. They decided to join forces and start a rival business in the same building with just £600 to make their first products.
    Swiftly following the Einstein T-shirt, other versions of the same idea featuring Marilyn Monroe and Elvis were released, and out of nowhere came a Facebook message from a buyer at Topman expressing an interest to sell their wares. 
    Next thing they were at Topman at Oxford Circus being asked to make them a full collection, which ultimately went down a storm. Footasylum then got on board following an uninvited visit by Samani and Green to their head office armed with T-shirts and hoodies.
    In recent years Hype has been loved by teens and tweens alike, with its rucksacks on the backs of every other school kid on the block.  
    Jump forward to November 2021 and the brand has recently opened a new state-of-the-art 2,700 sq ft flagship store at 5-7 Foubert’s Place, just off Carnaby Street, selling both its Hype range for younger fans and more recent Just Hype adult’s collection.
    And this week the brand opens a new 1,195 sq ft store at Highcross shopping centre in the dynamic duo’s home city of Leicester, where it all started. An in-store activation this Saturday with feature a DJ, branded cupcakes and goody bags for the first 100 people to enter the store.
    With over 430,000 TikTok followers, Hype is also one of the first fashion retailers to pilot the video-sharing platform’s in-app purchasing software. Green and Samani tell us about it all.

    Aaron Wallace, Co-founder & CEO, Aaron Wallace

    Aaron Wallace, Co-founder & CEO, Aaron Wallace

    Aaron Wallace is the Co-founder and CEO of his eponymous haircare brand which creates quality products for male afro hair.

    Aaron first launched the brand in 2016 under a different name, before re-branding the business to truly reflect its audience – black men, who like himself, were unable to find products easily that were suited for their hair and skin.

    The product line has since been reformulated and improved, using sustainable and natural ingredients including black seed oil and mango butter to help the curls and coils found in afro hair.

    The product is now stocked in the UK and US in places like Sainsbury’s, Debenhams, ASOS, Liberty and Saks Fifth Avenue, with Aaron eyeing up further expansion into other regions and retailers soon.

    In this episode of TheIndustry.fashion's 'The Beauty Edit' podcast, Aaron tells Tom Shearsmith, Senior News and Features Writer, about how he didn’t feel catered for growing up, his desire to change the black haircare market, how it felt to be stocked in a mainstream supermarket like Sainsbury's. He also tells us how his training as a barber helped with product development, why black men perhaps don’t talk about haircare as much as they should, and why haircare is only the beginning for the Aaron Wallace brand.

Fantastic event & podcast series

Lauretta is a brilliant host, both at the Industry events I’ve attended and on this podcast, the conversation just flows. It’s always interesting to see who The Industry have on their panels, as it’s always well thought out and introduces you to brands and retail spokespeople who I didn’t already know about. I will be shopping on My Wardrobe HQ more often!
