Because PAPER London clothes are not designed to be worn twice and tossed aside. They are designed to turn every wardrobe into a gallery of well-worn and much-loved statement pieces.
To become the favourite coat slipped on for the next twenty winters. The ever-complimented bikini still snug wash after wash. The stuff your future daughters will steal when they think you’re not looking.
All designed to be re-sold, repaired and recycled. All thoughtfully created right here in London.
