Olivia Burton – Our Newest Watch Collection
Posted on August 19th, 2019
We are so excited to have welcomed new watch brand Olivia Burton into Drakes recently. Their beautiful watches with amazing price points are something we thought you, our customers, would love. We wanted to give you an introduction to the brand so that you can get to know a bit more about them.
The Olivia Burton story began when best friends Lesa and Jemma met on their first day at the London College of Fashion. They both shared a passion for design and wanted to start their own business, but also shared the struggle of not being able to find a watch they wanted to wear. Both Lesa and Jemma were lovers of vintage. They would trawl through antique markets to find watches but never found the right one.
After working for top fashion brands including ASOS, Topshop and Selfridges, in 2011 Lesa and Jemma both quit their jobs to fulfil their dreams of going it alone to create their own brand of beautiful watches. The brand was named after Lesa’s great aunt who was a huge inspiration to both her and Jemma.
The first Olivia Burton collection was launched in September 2012 and since then the brand has gone from strength to strength. Each piece is beautifully inspired by their vintage finds and the latest catwalk trends. Each design is now bought to life in the brands East London studio.
With so many gorgeous watches in the collection, we are sure you will love Olivia Burton as much as we do. The delicate pastel and floral designs, all while being made with top quality materials and available at amazing price points, its hard not to love the unique British collection.
