Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi first met aged 18 on the Isle of Man, where they both grew up. In 1996, they set up shop on Notting Hill’s Portobello Road, and it wasn’t long before their designs were flying off the rails.

From the start, their one-off creations displayed many of the themes that Preen would revisit over the next decade – Victoriana, recycling, deconstruction, punk rock.

Thornton and Bregazzi found fresh inspiration taking their cues from Hitchcock blond Tippi Hedren for Preen Pre Fall 14. Her famous bird attack in ‘The Birds’ is referenced by the furry of wings printed on dresses. There is also a strong case of opposites attract, one of Preen’s hallmarks, packaged in an eclectic and creative way.The midi length is key to the myriad of elegant dresses offered: some plain, others embroidered, and there is a standout shearling collared parka with ‘Seize the Day’ emblazoned on the back.
