Harris Wharf is a relatively young company started by sibling duo Guilia and Aldo Acchiardi in 2010. They originally began their venture in 2009 by opening their first store in 19 Camden Passage as a testing ground for the AW10 Harris Wharf collection and in order to be close to their customer base. Each garment is designed in London, but their collections are produced in their great grandfather’s glove making factory in Turin using Italian and Japanese fabrics. They are known for making tailored men and women’s coats and blazers
using felted wool and cashmere finished off with a raw edge and unlined fabrics in bright bold and traditional muted colours.
