Henri Lloyd – 50 Years of Pioneering Spirit

When you think of Henri Lloyd, it’s more than likely you think of prim polos and ..knits. But not only does Henri Lloyd support you in making your wardrobe seamlessly stylish, they have also been supporting adventurers.

Most recently they have given their support, and name, to the classic sea voyage – they even had a boat named after them; Henri Lloyd – 50 Years of Pioneering Spirit. The boat was named at St Katherine’s Dock before it set sale on its 40,000 mile adventure.

Paul Strzelecki, Joint CEO of Henri Lloyd explained “The name “Henri Lloyd – 50 years of Pioneering Spirit” was chosen to reflect the relationship between Henri Lloyd and the individuals who over the past five decades have taken on the challenges of this type of adventure. To undertake this type of voyage successfully an individual has to possess inventiveness, resourcefulness and sheer strength of character. At Henri Lloyd we constantly pioneer technological advances in foul weather gear to enable sailors compete more safely and effectively…We are so proud to be able to support the boat and be associated with her crew and wish them all well on their amazing voyage!”

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
