readywear: the stars of our campaign
Featuring eight prolific Londoners, all of whom are Field Grey friends, the campaign was shot by renowned portrait photographer Peter Searle, famous for his portraits of British Prime Ministers and international CEOs.
The campaign sees our special subjects select items from our Readywear range, each modelled in their own personal surroundings. Artists and architects alike show how Readywear works with an individual’s personal style.
Readywear, a capsule collection of 36 off-the-peg uniform items, is designed to meet the needs of the hospitality and retail sectors. The collection comes in a variety of colours and includes utility jackets, waistcoats, chinos and spa trousers, shirts, tunic tops, pinafores and a range of aprons.
Here are the seven stunning portraits, which will be displayed in all their glory at our stand at London Design Fair this weekend. Come and say hello!
