Duality has always been Arina Pritch’s compass. To her, no art form is superior to another; both are just means to express something ineffable, a true creative message. This window into creativity came to her at an early age, nurtured by an open, multi-cultural background. Born in Moscow, Arina has lived in different cities and countries, from Moscow and St.Petersburg to Malta and Germany, and currently resides in London.
A keen observer of human nature she realised that duality exists in all things. Childhood doodles soon became a full-fledged dedication to fashion and design. Her studies at the prestigious Istituto Marangoni and the European Business School in London only reinforced her conviction that the market lacked a voice that harnessed that realisation, so in 2012 she set herself to fill that void.
“Clothes have a transformative power, and are an unspoken statement.”
Her choice immediately settled on leather. What better to express the dichotomy between personality and psychology than skin on skin? Demanding and unforgiving, leather represented a territory that suited Arina Pritch’s Project.
In her namesake brand PRITCH London, this unique natural material yields rich and rewarding results - as with all difficult undertakings, and for Arina Pritch, the perfect constantly renewed challenge: creating beautiful leather garments that are not just products but integral parts of a process, and a luxury design story.
This tension between who you are and what you want to project, coupled to razor edge technique and utmost attention to detail compose Arina Pritch’s signature as a designer: unconventional and completely modern.
“Building transformability into their design makes them fit with a changing expression of our inner selves.”
Based in London, PRITCH London stands for non-conformist luxury, a virtuoso take on leather that embodies today’s versatile modernity through classic shapes, duality and dimensional textures.
Merging the parallel boundaries of art and fashion, we have established an affluent client base of fashion and art collectors who truly appreciate fashion and the art of craftsmanship.
A leader in producing garments into objects of desire from the finest in leather and rarefied materials, PRITCH London has established itself as an innovator in the fashion industry exploring production techniques not commonly used by other brands and standing as the only design house with a predominate focus on creating garments from fine leather.
Embodying today’s duality between elegance and edge, PRITCH London calls upon its master craftsmen to bring together the strength and durability of leather with styles able to withstand the test of time and trends.
Like its symbol the Raven, the only bird who thrives with equal ease alone or among other species, Pritch London stands for an expression of your honest self.
Revisiting the contemporary silhouette through a prism of functionality and designs that espouse the lifestyle of the wearer, PRITCH London offers eye-catching garments that play on symmetry and fit for a truly luxurious wardrobe, harnessing the potential of leather in all its interpretations.
Our garments are designed with multi-functionality and transformation in mind, easily layered or modified by removable elements. The brand’s distinctive signature is transformation and the art of combining various leathers and luxurious textures in one piece, called Pritch Hybrids.
Manufactured between Italy and our London atelier, each product features specially branded trims and accessories, and is cut from ethically sourced leathers produced by internationally recognized suppliers. Majority of our pieces are available on Made to order and Made to measure basis.
Hailing from different nationalities and backgrounds, the PRITCH London team members bring a different take on what the brand stands for, subtly reflected in the design of its collections. This strong cast of characters with intensely diverse life experiences makes for a rich dialogue orchestrated by PRITCH’s Founder and creative Director Arina Pritch.
Softening the rebellious London DNA of PRITCH London with Italian finesse is Federica Braghieri, Head of Design. Born in Pavia, her "The Geometry of the Body" graduate collection for the Politecnico di Milano was showcased at the Craftsmen/ Designers/ Makers KFCC Gallery, Korea Foundation in Seoul in 2014. Long interested in leather for its characteristics and craft, she joined PRITCH London and has grown into her position as Head of Design.
