Goodbye From Us.
‘How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard’. Winnie The Pooh
All good stories have an ending, and it is with very heavy hearts we announce the ending of Olivier London. The world is a different place from when we launched 11 years ago and what started as knitting cardigans for friends became something spectacular. Unfortunately, like many retail businesses, we have faced many difficulties over the past 2 to 3 years, we have fought hard through many of these and believed we could eventually weather the storm, devastatingly with the latest substantial increase in our raw materials combined with the rising cost of living we are unable to produce a sustainable, high quality and unique collection at an affordable price which remains at the heart of our brand. We would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you for your continued support over the past 11 years. We will cherish all our special memories as a brand such as meeting so many of our wonderful customers, winning multiple awards, dressing royalty and international recognition for our quality and designs. Over the years we have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people who supported us and helped us bring our dream to life and for this we are honoured.
Over the next month we will be selling the remaining stock.
Olivier London was founded in 2010 by Emma Olivier after the birth of her first daughter, Amber. Continuing a long-standing family tradition of knitting and making clothes for their children, Emma took inspiration from the pieces her grandmother had made her own mother, and from the vintage knitting patterns that she had collected over the years.
Inspired to create high-quality, timeless childrenswear that could be treasured and passed down the family, Emma set to work and was soon joined by lifelong friend and business partner, Rebecca Stoddard.
What started with a hand-knitted cardigan grew into an award-winning global brand, and today Olivier London’s nostalgic designs, luxurious cashmere and whimsical Liberty print creations are sought-after and loved the world over. True to Emma and Rebecca’s original vision, Olivier London pieces are timeless and well made, designed to be lived in, loved and passed on.
“By using 100% natural fibres, our luxurious fabrics are naturally resilient – perfect for making mischief and memories.” – Rebecca Stoddard, co-owner
Inspired by simpler times when there was no compromise on quality, Olivier London pieces are made to stand the test of time. We are unapologetically ‘slow fashion’ and work directly with the best mills, fabric designers, knitters and producers in the world to deliver high-quality pieces that are sustainably made, long-lasting and naturally resilient.
Although Olivier London is a global brand, we are still very much ‘hands-on’. Our children remain our most honest (and rigorous) sample testers, and we take pride in our small, close-knit UK team who look after everything from the moment your order is received. Every package you receive from Olivier London has been handpicked and lovingly wrapped by a member of our team and makes its way to you from our beautiful barn conversion on the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire.
