Derrick Campbell

Managing director, Lyle & Scott

Derrick Campbell may have caused controversy when he said he’d rather burn stock than discount it at the Drapers and WGSN Summit this November, but given that Lyle & Scott regularly sells through at 100% according to one of its stockists, it’s easy to see why he can make such ballsy statements.

Campbell oversaw the launch of Lyle & Scott’s Vintage line six years ago, which reached its climax in 2009 as the saviour of indie retailers, keeping their tills ringing in a year when cash flow has been tight. Campbell admits autumn 09 has been the brand’s best season to date, while the year to March saw the company turn over £27m globally (£20m of it from the UK), continuing three years of 30% year-on-year sales rises.

To round off an outstanding 12 months, the brand scooped the Drapers Award for Young Fashion Brand of the Year last month.
