  • The Ruth Chapman Edit

    Looking through the Preen Archives Ruth chose three key items to make her very own ‘Ultimate Preen Look.' Ruth was immediately drawn towards A Camel Coat from AW04 and a trench coat from AW03. The result is a classic turned upside down and inside out. We took the tailored shape and details of the camel coat and made it in the traditional cotton gabardine of the trench. In contrast we combined the trench with a dress inspired from a SS06 shirt in a blue check which had been inspired by Kurt Cobain’s 90s grunge. Ruth opted to turn this into an exclusive shirt dress keeping the Grey Marl jersey wrap waist tie of the original to offer both comfort and versatility. Thea and Justin loved working with Ruth, not only did she selected personal favourites of Thea’s but she made her Archivist look a perfect choice for an truly modern elegant woman. 
  • The Yasmin Sewell Edit

Her success as a revolutionary force and growing industry influence.

With a proven track record and natural ability to connect on a personal level it was only natural that Yasmin  be one of our Preen Archivist. Thea and Justin absolutely loved creating this amazing effortlessly cool look with Yasmin. We hope you too will love the versatility and ease to these 2 pieces, the live in oversized trench , the delicate antique inspired Paisley print the graphic modern flash of neon orange and the soft bias layers to the dress.

    Ray Petri's Buffalo movement was the inspiration. His images in ‘The Face’ and 'Blitz Magazine' from the early 1980's with there graphic toughness and delicate detailing are key. We contrasted this with popular culture images from that time of Princess Diana in her sailor collars and soft flowing dresses. The result is effortlessly modern.

  • The ManRepeller Edit

    American author and notorious fashion blogger best know as ‘The Man Repeller’

    Leandra selected two pieces to create her ‘Archivist look.’ The first was an organic patchwork knit from AW04 inspired by the 1967 French film 'Belle du Jour'. The second was a panelled lace and hammered silk dress from ss09 inspired by the 1969 film ‘Easy Rider’. 

    For this Archivist project Leandra worked with Justin and Thea to create the perfect synergy of her style and that of Preens 

    the combination of weights and fabrics, attracted Leandra to the SS09 dress, with its sheer lace panels and body sculpting structure, through development this became a modern corded French lace and the softest cashmere knit in the colour pallet of AW04 navy, bottle green and grey marl, the result is an effortlessly cool  sweater that can be worn throughout the year, from day to evening. We love it and hope you will too.

Plays at events for Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens, Alexander McQueen, Black swan film premiere, British fashion awards and, most recently, Art Basel Miami. Far from the practice of fading records in and out, Dexter slows down beats and creates a moody aural sensations somewhere between the electronic, industrial, techno acid and dreamlike; twisting outsider music's arm to give it the bravado of RnB. The result is a kind of 21st century sex music.

  • The Kim Hersov Edit

    Editor at Large for Porter Magazine, Columnist at the Edit and Co-Founder of Talitha.

    Kim selected three pieces to combine into her ‘ultimate preen look’ The Print taken from AW10, a delicate floral print with black lace inspired by Peter Saville’s album artwork for New Order. She loved the original dress but couldn’t get hold of it, so when she was invited to work with Justin and Thea on her outfit it was the one piece she was looking out for specifically in amongst the archive rails. Secondly she wanted a piece to harden up the silk floral dress. She gravitated towards checked wool coat from AW08 which has a grunge feeling as inspiration for that collection was Kurt Cobain’s 90s style. Keeping the shearling collar, originally from the check coat she then went on to select the silhouette of a coat from AW07.

    Kim describes herself as ‘Allergic to matching.’ These two prints, which on paper should not work together, in this instance complement each other so effortlessly. Her look is a true representation of both herself as well as a combination of two of the most signature iconic Preen styles.

  • The Telegraph Edit - Lisa Armstrong

    This week's Archivist is Fashion Editor of the Daily Telegraph, Lisa Armstrong. Working together with Justin, Thea and Lisa created a dress that she could archive and pass down through generations of her family, favouring evening-wear pieces as these are "harder to part with." She picked an 50’s inspired dress from SS11 for the silhouette embellishment from fall 2012 and colours from winter 2012. Crafted in a silk crepe bonded neoprene, embellished with vivid orange hand embellishment. This combination resulted in a timeless cocktail dress.

     

     

  • Our British Fashion Awards Nomination

    Preen By Thornton Bregazzi have been nominated for the British Fashion Awards 2014 Establishment Designer.
  • The Preen Archvisits

    The Preen Archivist Project was conceived out numerous requests for Archived Preen styles from past seasons, as well as comments like, 'I still love that wool check coat from AW 09 its my fall back coat every winter' and 'Please can you try to find me one of the yellow Norma dress's from Pre fall 12’.                 

    Thea and Justin worked with key industry women and fashions ambassadors, that they know and respect for both their personal style and modern attitude.             

    Each Archivist was invited to delve into the Preen archives, working with Justin and Thea  to select pieces they loved, prints they remembered, silhouettes that worked for their individual styles, combining designs and seasons together, some times mixing as many as 4 different collections, taking a print or embroidery from one, a coat from a winter collection, a dress from a spring summer and a fabric from another. To create their ultimate Preen look, there were no restrictions.    

    Each Archivist came with an idea of what they wanted but this often changed as they delved deeper. The final pieces are a true representation of both Preen designs throughout the years and the individual personal styles of each. All Preen Archivist bring a different attitude and strength, all have fantastic personal style, all are truly modern women; we are honoured to be working with all of them. Thea and Justin have loved working on this Project and found it both rewarding and inspiring in equal measure, we hope you love having the opportunity to own one of these unique and limited edition pieces as much as we loved creating them. 

    Each outfit will  be available in Limited edition runs, exclusively on our e-commerce shop, launching fortnightly with a new Preen Archivist.





  • The Vogue Edit - Emily Sheffield


    Emily Sheffield Deputy Editor at British Vogue said she discovered Preen when she stumbled on our Portobello store, at the age of 20.
    Thea and Justin were thrilled when Emily was as excited to delve into the Preen Archive as they were to have the opportunity to create something new and exciting, with such a modern thinking inspirational woman. 
    Emily chose to mix a gothic inspired chain and crystal embellished detail from our AW12 collection with a delicate botanical printed minimal silhouette from an AW13. The result is an effortless modern twist on the original cocktail dress.


  • The Vogue Edit - Sarah Harris

    Sarah Harris Fashion Features Director at British Vogue has such effortless style, that Thea and Justin were thrilled when she agreed to become the 1st Preen Archivist. Sarah wanted a look that was timeless and easy something that she can just throw on for work, weekend, day or night, She selected a grunge inspired plaid print from AW08, a silk pocketed blouse from the SS08, pairing this with a fluid maxi skirt from SS11. Working with Sarah to design the perfect ‘Harris’ look has been an amazingly inspirational process, the result is a perfect amalgamation of the classic Preen style and Sarah's personal style. 

     


  • Preen Eyewear

    For this 1st Preen Eyewear collection, Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton looked to vintage 1950's eyewear. 

    Frames that are derived from natural sources, such as tortoiseshell metals and ivory, are given a modern update when combined with Miami inspired colours, florals and silhouettes.

    With a combination of bold, masculine shapes and delicately feminine edges of fine gold details, etched flowers and graphic panels of contrast colours,this collection nods to the past but sits firmly in the present.

  • Preen by Thornton Bregazzi AW14 - Backstage

    1977 marked not only their first ever visit to the movies but also a deeply memorable year of cinematography for Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of Preen. Their Autumn/ Winter 2014 collection draws on two seminal, but aesthetically disparate films of that year; the androgynous whimsy of Annie Hall and the bold graphicness of Star Wars™
