Peter Ashfield (General Sales Manager) for Peers Hardy stated: “Farah fits perfectly into our growing portfolio of British brands and aligns with our strategy of taking established heritage brands to the global audience. Farah has a great history that is now being re-born for today’s young consumer, an area within our gent’s portfolio that we were lacking. Product design & creativity are the very lifeblood of our company and I know Farah shares these same values. I am delighted to be working together and excited to see the introduction of Farah timepieces and jewelry later this year.”
