based in london
Banvard & James was launched in 2013
as a quintessentially British luxury mens’ accessory brand.
Launched by two brothers, it seeks to combine the sartorial heritage of its’ London roots, the vibrancy of the modern British design scene and featuring some of the colourful flair seen throughout Europe. The collection of classic accessories for men exudes style and sophistication.
“My brother and I, although firmly with London roots, spent many years of our childhood growing up within Europe, specifically the Mediterranean. A region where colour is so intrinsic and part of day-to-day life, it is almost taken for granted, where sartorially elegant gentlemen effortlessly incorporate colour into their outfits daily.
Fast forward several years to a grey, wet day in London. I was walking over the Thames and the sea of black umbrellas and clothing was almost painful. So, starting with the Walker Umbrella, an accessory we felt suitably British, we had an idea. Bring some colour to this scene by adding some discrete colour to the accessories.
It is worth mentioning that we have never used black in any of our products and we never will.”
we insist all products are
