palmer//harding is a designer brand based in London, who are synonymous with the shirt.
The shirt is a garment that has a friction in the balance between masculine and feminine. There is a sense of electricity in the threshold between opposites and this is where palmer//harding explore their collections:
masculine // feminine
hard // soft
structured // fluid
serious // liberated
We create interesting clothes for interesting people.
The designers, Matthew Harding and Levi Palmer, met while studying at Central Saint Martins in 2007. Wanting to express their creativity in a garment that applied to the daily life of the women that surrounded them led the duo to utilise the shirt as a template for creativity. The pair experiment with innovative pattern cutting and draping techniques cultivated through their design education to build directional and desirable collections that constantly evolve the idea of what a shirt can be. A recurring theme within their aesthetic is an exploration into balance between two extremes and playing with volume and movement to convey an emotive romanticism to functional day wear.
The brand is worn by independent, intelligent and influential women from a broad age, nationality and size demographic. Characterised by a desire for an easy yet design drive wardrobe as an essential part of their lifestyle, customers of palmer//harding are leader in the arena of their own choosing; whether that be their careers, social pursuits or personal life goals.
Since the launch, the brand has received several accolades and accomplishments which include; 4 seasons of NewGen sponsorship from The British Fashion Council, dressing Michelle Obama for her first public speech after leaving The White House and winning the 2017 British Vogue Designer fashion fund.
