Celebrated designer Pierre Hardy‘s first foray into the fashion industry began while working for Vanity Italia and Vogue Hommes International as an illustrator, leading to his discovery of shoes. He then worked as Designer for Christian Dior, and in 1990, took on the coveted title of Creative Director for women’s footwear collection at Hermes. His role subsequently expanded to include the men’s footwear and jewelry lines.
Following collaborations with notable names in the fashion industry, the designer launched his own label in 1999. Hardy’s own personal creative signature is described as architectural, graphic and geometric, with pops of vivid colour. As a testament to his status, the Hermes Group in 2016 acquired a minority stake in his label, further cementing his place as a deeply respected figure in the fashion world.
The ‘20 Years Capsule Collection‘ is inspired by Hardy’s most iconic archival models. The collection conjures a vibrant celebration of the designer’s signature elements. A key piece within the capsule, ‘The Blade’, is from Hardy’s very first collection in 1999, referencing the classic stiletto re-edited to draw all eyes on its radical heels.
On Pedder is the only retailer globally, to celebrate this important milestone with the designer himself. Amidst the dynamic showcase of this special collection, guests will be treated to a special in store preview of the Spring Summer 2020 collection, and shop the latest Autumn Winter 2019 deliveries.
