Hamilton and Hare were recently awarded a place on the prestigious Walpole 'Brands of Tomorrow' scheme for 2018. The scheme identifies young British luxury brands that have already captured the industry's attention and are tipped for future success. Previous alumni include Orlebar Brown, Bremont, Nyetimber, Charlotte Olympia and Emilia Wickstead.
Walpole unveiled the emerging luxury brands selected as part of their 2018 Brands of Tomorrow programme at the iconic London department store, Fortnum & Mason. Hamilton and Hare were one of 12 entrepreneurial brands to win a place on the scheme along with men’s sportswear brand Castore, online flower delivery company Flowerbx and womenswear brand Asceno.
Established in 2007, Brands of Tomorrow identifies entrepreneurial British luxury brands that have captured the industry's attention and through a year-long programme of workshops and mentoring, helps them to develop their business skills and accelerate their growth.
Helen Brocklebank CEO of Walpole and Michael Ward Managing Director at Harrods.
