The Story of Ziggy Lloyd
Dressing with purpose & personality
Ziggy Lloyd was created for the well-travelled man who buys a last-minute flight across the world, for the music-lover who meticulously puts together the perfect playlist for every party, for the gourmet who appreciates fine dining as much as late night street food, and most of all, for the daring individual who isn’t afraid to let his personality shine through a carefully curated wardrobe.
Ziggy Lloyd was conceived by Ephraim and Sophie, a free-spirited, fashion-loving couple who met in Buenos Aires, Argentina - a city they called home for many years. They bonded over a shared passion for Malbec wine, hosting costume parties and fashion. During their time in South America, they were struck by the local artisan workmanship and the continent’s unique materials, in particular the incredible softness and warmth of baby alpaca wool. And so, combining their backgrounds in fashion and finance, they decided to create a new luxury line of men’s wool coats using unique, sustainable materials and expert craftsmanship, made with plenty of personality.
They travelled across Bolivia and Peru on a quest to source the highest quality alpaca fabric, encountering breathtaking views of the Andes along the way. They relished the good (rooftop bars with volcano views), endured the bad (freezing cold 4am bus rides) and stayed calm in the face of the ugly (corrupt officials) all in the name of the end game: finding the softest alpaca wool they had ever felt.
They now live in Lisbon with their daughter Luna where they are inspired by the city’s bright colours and the Portuguese craftsmen who breathe life into their men's coat designs.
