In 2007 the Acchiardi siblings, Giulia and Aldo, moved to London where they found the inspiration for their clothing collection, Harris Wharf Lon-don, which was launched in 2010.With their family’s history of textile craftmanship and innovation, the brand has steadily grown to become a contemporary classic. An emphasis on high quality fabrics and timeless cuts, never compromised but always accessible, makes Harris Wharf London a luxury brand in disguise.The jersey-focused collection, minimal and understated, features unlined and raw-edged outerwear in an effortless take on traditional cuts and shapes. The aim is to create a style that lasts for many years thanks to the fabric longevity, trans-seasonal features and timeless design.
Giulia Acchiardi graduated in Fashion Design in London, 2008. After in-ternships at Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood she decided to start her own label together with her brother, Aldo, who at the time was studying Economics. Giulia’s design philosophy is fundamentally to follow her instincts; learning and overviewing all aspects of the family business is equally important to the design process itself, she says.
