Through their progressive design and ever evolving collections, palmer//harding have become synonymous with the shirt, often being referred to as “the shirt boys” by press and buyers. The collection focuses on advanced contemporary priced shirts and shirt-dresses while complementing the seasonal offering with supporting categories (trousers, skirts, outerwear, knitwear etc).
