Step your game up with Pickett’s truly British games and accessories
“I see myself more as an editor than a designer,” explains Trevor Pickett, the ‘quintessential English eccentric’ who founded his eponymous luxury leather goods brands in 1988. “I work very closely with the talented workers who create my products and take great care in every detail – I could tell you exactly who has helped to create a piece just by looking at it.” Pickett London prides itself on its discreetly exclusive luxury goods that truly stand the test of time, both in terms of style and quality. One of the last luxury brands manufacturing products by hand entirely from British-sourced leather, the quirky gifts and travel accessories embody the best Britain has to offer. And each is delivered in a distinctive green giftbox wrapped in satin orange ribbon. Pickett places great emphasis on its stores, or emporiums, which are located in Mayfair’s Burlington Garden’s and Chelsea’s Sloane Street and provide so much of the shopping ‘experience’. However, its artisanal and oft-quirky goods can also be bought online, including now in the Classic Driver Shop. From stylish backgammon sets and sumptuous leather watch rolls to traditional briefcases and ornament-handled umbrellas, you can find our favourite items from Pickett London listed below. “My business is my pleasure,” Trevor Pickett concludes, “and my pleasure is my life.” Looking at his brand’s range of items, we certainly don’t doubt it.
