Zowie Broach, Brian Kirby
The authority of designers Zowie Broach and Brian Kirkbys label continues to grow for their beautifully made, innovative tailoring. They began Boudicca in 1997, naming it after the warrior queen of the Iceni tribe. So perhaps unsurprisingly they are both greatly admired for their uncompromising design independence and integrity.
American Express continue their sponsorship of the company their first design collaboration with a British label since Alexander McQueen.
Their clothes are elegant, sternly tailored shapes softened by fine lace and thick satin ribbons lacing the back of a jacket.
