Designing for a lifestyle brand such as ours is a dream job for truly creative types inspired by the tradition of modern Britain.
Our team is passionate about print and our products, bringing the two together to create beautiful, wearable designs from scratch and often under pressure. Designing for the next seasons while finalising the current, across all channels and for all of our customers, is what we thrive on. Having an in-house print team is a dream as everything we generate is original with a team of designers poised over desks with a paintbrush in hand.
Season after season, you’ll inspire with new shapes and ideas, getting to know our customer firsthand, experiencing where they are and what they like to do in their own time.
We search this great island of ours far and wide. Scrabbling at flea markets, taking inspiration trips from Norfolk to Scotland and even re-interpreting one of Martine Joule's (Tom’s sister) hand knitted jumpers that she made for her daughter, Tilly, nearly 20 years ago.
Unlike other retail or lifestyle brands, our Designers have complete control as everything is designed in-house and in tandem with our Print, Buying and Merchandising teams. So, throughout the process, you’ll oversee design and fit, from sketch to final sample – even being a guinea pig when needed to test fit and wear. The team is also tasked with negotiating tough deals and building relationships with partners and suppliers that get our customers the best quality and cost.
There’s no better feeling than exploring the ideas and coming up with the solutions that give our customers even more of what they love – design has never been so colourful!
