Designer fashion house, Holland Cooper, played a key part in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, crowning a record financial year for the Cheltenham business.
Already a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, the brand launched a limited-edition collection to mark the special royal occasion – with Holland Cooper clothing featuring in the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on The Mall in London on Sunday 5 June 2022 and in a private evening reception at the famous five-star Mayfair hotel, Claridge’s.
Holland Cooper’s Platinum Jubilee collection included a bespoke tweed regency coat, a Highbury cape coat, a double-breasted blazer, hand-rolled ‘platinum regal scarf’ and full-length Marlborough trench coat.
The business also revealed the last 12 months have been its most successful so far. Its yet to be published full-year 2022 annual results show growth of 48 per cent and revenues of £22.7 million, with an average annual growth of 57 per cent over the last five years.
The brand was founded in 2008 by Jade Holland Cooper, when she was a student at what was the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester.
Now managing director of the company, said she was ‘incredibly proud’ to be a part of the official royal celebrations, which were televised and streamed around the globe – and had big ambitions for the brand.
She told SoGlos: ‘I have built the company from scratch; it has been a labour of love over the last 14 years. I am immensely proud of what my teams and I have created.
‘We continue to develop, my ultimate goal is to become the leading British lifestyle brand, I do believe anything is possible – it just depends how badly you want it!’
The proudly British brand, which describes its look as ‘country style with statement city tailoring’, also saw its online sales climb through the Covid-19 pandemic, giving it the confidence to open a new destination flagship boutique in Charlton Kings in October 2021.
‘We have people travelling from all over the country and even internationally. Clients just love the bespoke offering and personal service. Since opening in October last year, we have seen constant footfall and sales have been strong,’ added Holland Cooper.
