Piper invests £8m in Orlebar Brown

Piper has taken a significant minority stake in Orlebar Brown, one of the UK’s most exciting premium menswear clothing brands. Founded in 2007 by Adam Brown and former business partner Julia Simpson-Orlebar, Orlebar Brown immediately filled a gap in the market by providing a more tailored approach to beach and swim shorts for men. Since
Piper has worked hard to complete the deal in six weeks, so that the business wasn’t distracted at its key selling time, and are committed to building Orlebar Brown into a globally recognized, British luxury fashion business.
