Nutters X Peter Werth

London Fashion Week: Nutters X Peter Werth

Not long ago we did a collaboration with Nutters Of Savile Row, which was founded in 1969 by the late, great Tommy Nutter, the original maverick tailor who was responsible for introducing fashion to Savile Row.

During the 1970s, Nutters dressed everyone from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to Elton John and Eric Clapton, from Jacko (before the Wacko) to the high priestess of Motown, Diana Ross, from the Duke and Duchess of Bedford to Sir Hardy Amies and Sir Roy Strong. It was a special blend of old school, new school … and no school at all.

Nutter’s clientele defined "bon vivant" and their destination of choice in the 1970's was the hedonistic New York discotheque, Studio 54. In 1977 it was the hottest place on Earth ... until the following year when the US music magazine, Billboard, pronounced a small Lancashire nightclub, Wigan Casino "The Best Disco In The World”.

The catalyst for the collection was a chance meeting on the set of Elaine Constantine’s Northern Soul film, where both brands were acting as wardrobe consultants.
