Monday 6 January 2014


Almost one year ago we created this blog and started posting news about Hardy & Parsons. Now that we start a new year, we've made a summary of the last months and we can say that we're proud and very happy with all the achievements we've made in the last year!

We designed a lot of new products, that are currently available, such as iPhone and Pen Cases, dog leads, belts... We've taken photos of every single product and we also have written very detailed descriptions of each of them. With those photos and descriptions we designed a catalogue that is now available online, so that you can check it every time you want. We also made a photo shoot with a model, to offer you a lifestyle catalogue of our bestsellers. We've opened accounts in the most important social networks, where you can find the latest news and information about Hardy & Parsons (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Vimeo). We took part in Beta, IWA and Showcase, to show and sell our products (we'll take part this year too). We made a new collaboration and started appearing in the media

We hope 2014 will be also a good year, as 2013 was. For the time being, we're designing a new website that we hope will be ready soon. On the website you'll be able to check all our products but also some interesting information about the brand, the "atelier" where the belts are handmade, the owner Maurice Greig... and much more! We're also developing our showroom for you to come every time you're in London, to see, try and buy our products. 

We've a lot of good reasons to face this year full of happiness. So... Happy New Year everybody! We hope you enjoyed Christmas and that 2014 will be your time to make all your dreams come true!

La Belle et la BĂȘte

Adlade, Belle, Flicie and Ludovic are young adult siblings who once lived in grandeur until their father's merchant ships were lost at sea. The family is now near ruin, but Adlade and Flicie nonetheless still squander away the family money on themselves and keeping beautiful, whereas Belle slaves around the house, doting on her father. Ludovic detests his two spoiled sisters, but is protective of Belle, especially with his friend Avenant, a handsome scoundrel who wants to marry Belle. Crossing the forest one dark and stormy evening, the father gets lost and takes refuge in a fantastical castle. Upon leaving, he steals a blossom off a rose bush, which Belle requested. The castle's resident, an angry beast, sentences him to one of two options for the theft of the rose: his own death, or that of one of his daughters. As she feels she is the cause of her father's predicament (despite her sisters asking for far more lavish gifts), Belle sacrifices herself to the beast. Upon arriving at the castle, Belle finds that the beast, whose grotesqueness she cannot deny, does not want to kill her, but wants to marry her and lavish her with riches. He does not force her, but he will ask her every night to marry him, these times the only ones when he will appear to her. She vows never to say yes. As Belle resigns herself to her mortal fate and looks deeper into the beast - whose grotesque exterior masks a kind but tortured soul - will her thoughts change? Meanwhile, Belle's family, who learn of her situation, have their own thoughts of what to do, some working toward what they believe is Belle's best welfare, and others working toward their own benefit.

Three sixty-something friends take a break from their day-to-day lives to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their last remaining single pal.
