Preen Line hosted an evening of poetry and cocktails at the Natural Philosopher on Hackney Road. Guests enjoyed performances from Preen family friend and poet Patricia Rezai, poet and stand-up comedian Laurie Bolger, poet and theatre critic Bridget Minamore, fashion stylist Celestine Cooney and curator Cassie Beadle.
Preen By Thornton Bregazzi was founded in 1996 by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, built on an aesthetic of darkly romantic and effortlessly modern, juxtaposing the masculine with feminine and mixing of hard and soft. Over two decades, Preen has evolved from a small boutique in London’s Notting Hill to a globally loved brand stocked across five continents.
2008 saw the launch of 'Preen Line'-the effortless rock ’n ‘roll contemporary line focusing on the easy-wear elements of the Preen Woman’s every day wardrobe.
Poetry seems to be on trend, with former young people's poet laureate for London Caleb Femi being commissioned by Mulberry to write a seasonal poem, which he performed at the leather goods brand's festive gathering.
