Robbie Williams Clothing Line goes into Liquidation

Robbie Williams, former Take That band member and solo artist, has filed for voluntary bankruptcy and liquidation for his recent fashion line ‘Farrell’ on Monday 14th October 2013. Only a few months previous, Robbie Williams opened a fashion label in Covent Garden, the fashion line named ‘Farrell’ after his Granddad was supposed to be a 6 month pop up store but closed after only six weeks. Robbie Williams launched the menswear line in September 2011, it was said to have been named after and inspired by his Grand Father Jack Farrell who was a dresser in his home town of Stoke on Trent and fondly nicknamed Jack the Giant Killer.

In honour of his grand father the brand represented honesty, manners and good humour with the motto ‘Wear it in, Wear it out’. 39-year-old singer songwriter Robbie Williams issued the following statement:

“The support of the men’s press and retailers internationally since we started has been incredible and I want to thank them. I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the talented Ben Dickens and will miss creating and working with and wish him every luck for the future.”

The pop-up shop that had only been open 6 weeks in Covent Garden closed its doors on Monday, and the eCommerce store is no longer taking orders. All staff have been dismissed from the company including shop workers and designers. It goes to show in this economic climate any business can go into liquidation.
