Pentland Brands

Pentland Brands, which owns Speedo, Berghaus, and other sports and outdoor lifestyle brands, announced it has partnered with academic institutions across the UK to nurture design students through mentoring workshops, career opportunities, and fabric donations.

The company stated it has enrolled in the UK Government Kickstart scheme, which grants funding to young people, aged 16-24, receiving universal credit. Pentland is recruiting two new positions through the scheme, Junior Motion Graphics Designer and a Junior Social Content Designer. Both positions will work in the creative talent team under the Creative Talent Manager, Laura Bromley.

Additionally, Pentland has partnered with the University of South Wales to help Fashion Communication students with their CVs, interview practice, and portfolio reviews.

The company will also lead conversations and host career talks at the Universities of East London, Lincoln, and Coventry, Nottingham Trent University, and Manchester Fashion Institute.

Students at Ravensbourne University will have the opportunity to participate in a live brief to design a small collection of outdoor accessories for Berghaus while receiving advice from Pentland’s in-house designers.

In partnership with Nottingham Trent University’s Fashion Design Course, Pentland has donated fabric and outerwear to support a project in which students design garments for the homeless.

Laura Bromley, creative talent manager, stated in a release: “At Pentland Brands, we’re so passionate about supporting the next generation of creative talent. We believe in them and the great impact they will bring to our business. It’s vital for students to feel supported and inspired and to never give up on their dreams as they are the future!”

Sportswear label Fila has unveiled a collaboration with birdwatching initiative Flock Together in the form of an apparel and footwear capsule, to be exclusively sold through LN-CC.

In a range of hike-wear gear made for urban exploring, the collection intends to bring people into nature and engage with their community. The selection includes a reinvented version of the Fila Trailblazer hiking shoe and two shearling fleece designs.

The colourways of the line are inspired by the Kingfisher bird, with a scannable near field communication (NFC) tag present in the hiking shoe that takes buyers to a dedicated page outlining the best places in the UK to spot a Kingfisher.

15 percent of all sales of the collection will go towards the Flock Together community fund.

Buying and creative director at LN-CC, Reece Crisp, expressed his enthusiasm over the collaboration in a release, stating: “We’re super excited for LN-CC to be part of this project.

“Flock Together encompasses everything that’s great about community and wellness, two driving forces that are integral to LN-CC too.

“Flock Together’s growth has been both a reaction to, and antidote from, a difficult eighteen months by bringing people together and encouraging outdoor consciousness, so we are honoured to share our platform in amplifying its much-needed positivity while working with Fila in creating this tribute to the Kingfisher.”

Flock Together, founded back in the 2020 covid-19 lockdowns, brings BIPOC together to engage in birdwatching and other nature-oriented activities.

It has previously partnered on an event with Timberland, hosting a range of spoken word presentations at the nature reserve, Woodbury Wetlands. Sponsored by the apparel label, the event aimed to promote the voices in its growing community adjacent to guiding guests through the nature reserve.
