The brand licensing agent has signed a deal to represent the Historic Royal Palaces charity and extend its licensing programme.
The Historic Royal Palaces charity cares for six well-known palaces – Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.
As a unique, constantly evolving brand with authentic provenance, heritage, distinction and style, the palaces, gardens and collections are an example of the best master craftsmanship and designers, spanning nearly a thousand years. Licensees can be inspired by an extensive asset library containing imagery, patterns, prints, grand architecture, magnificent interiors, collections of fine art, furniture, fashion, beautiful gardens and much more.
