Men’s tailor Hardy Amies has gone into administration for the second time in its 73-year history.
Founded by the former dressmaker to the Queen, it was previously rescued from collapse in 2008.
Administrators at Menzies said it had been trading at a loss for “some time”. Founded by the late Sir Hardy Amies, it has one shop on London’s Savile Row.
Menzies is seeking buyers for its brand’s UK operations and intellectual property rights.
Freddy Khalastchi, business recovery partner at Menzies, said: “Despite trading at a loss in the UK for some time, the Hardy Amies brand has a unique heritage, which is much-revered in the world of haute couture, and it very much deserves to live on.
“We are looking forward to talking with potential buyers in the coming days and weeks to find a way to make this happen.”
