Hidden away in Arnold Circus’ Rochelle School, a place home to a thriving community of creative businesses in east London, are the headquarters of British fashion label, design consultancy and e-commerce retailer, Several;.
Recently launched by founder and creative director Graeme Fidler, the menswear brand offers “an engaging edit of references to serve an informed man with understated clothing that focuses on quality, craftsmanship, and quiet luxury. Traditional wardrobe pieces are made new, wearable, and relevant. Modernity, detail, and soul are cornerstones of the clothing that it creates.” These are just some of the ways in which Several; distinguishes itself from its contemporaries. Those who choose to visit Several; online or in-store, will find alongside their expansive product offering a stellar supporting cast featuring the likes of Paraboot, Aspesi, Porter and Mont Bell; each piece carefully selected by the knowledgeable Several; team. For those wondering about the semicolon in the brand name – it’s there to suggest an ongoing story filled with potential.
I discovered Several; via Mr. Porter, during the recent January sales, subsequently purchasing this Slim Fit Flecked Shetland Wool Sweater, which epitomises the Several; ethos of producing a desirable product at an accessible price point. The sweater is a versatile piece, appropriate for a variety of formal or informal occasions, particularly with these indigo jeans from MKI Miyuki-Zoku and a white Oxford shirt, from ASOS, underneath.
In conversation with editor Lena Dystant of Selectism, Fidler stated that he wanted “Several; to grow organically and develop as a brand that will fit naturally within the fashion system.” Looking at items found within the current collection, he is certain of reaching this ambition.
