The brand, launched in 2014 by former Bally creative director and head of Aquascutum menswear Graeme Fidler, has more than 170 international stockists, including Mr Porter and Selfridges.
It is positioned between brands such as APC and Marni, designed with an “understated, modern luxury aesthetic” and is based at Rochelle School in Shoreditch, east London.
Several joins menswear brand Percival, which also launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £250,000 earlier this month to develop its wholesale strategy and launch another retail outlet.
Percival launched in 2010 and opened its first store in London’s Soho in December 2012. It plans to use the funding to invest in attending trade shows, offering larger sample sets, online marketing, a store refurbishment and an ecommerce consultant.
