Any info on Squire?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was reading an article or two on Carlo Brandelli, who is now the design directory at Kilgour (Kilgour French Stanley, until recently). They all mention that he made his bones with the label Squire, which was apparently very cutting edge and very influential and had a great clientele even though it only existed for a few years in the early - mid 1990s. Anybody know anything about this label: the clothes, who wore it, why it went under? Pictures are best, as always.

Jude Law, Peter Saville and the like frequented Squire, which was on Conduit St. It apparently featured reinterpreted British classics like covert coats. Don't know much more than that.

Squire was promising - and Carlo learned a lot of his stuff from his experiences there. It was like a modern take on some of those great iconic British pieces - and was heavily influenced by Savile Row round the corner.
But it was very much a rtw fashion oriented brand with a hefty dose of mod philosophy.

Incidentally Squire occupied the former site of one of the all time great London menswear stores Mr Fish (it was also Katherine Hamnett and now i believe Nicole Farhi Home)
