In Conversation with Pantherella’s Jo Mason & Emma Gallagher

It’s cosy season, and when the cold creeps in, the fluffy socks come out. We’re excited to be partnering with luxury sock brand Pantherella in an upcoming Instagram competition - keep your eyes peeled this month!

We meet with Pantherella’s Marketing Manager, Jo Mason, and Head of Digital, Emma Gallagher, to talk about the brand’s history and their favourite products. 

Cambridge Satchel 

Please could you introduce yourselves? 

Emma Gallagher

I’m the Head of Digital, looking after everything ecommerce and digital marketing for both Pantherella and HJ Hall.

Jo Mason

I’m the Marketing Manager for Pantherella International group which looks after three brands – Pantherella, Scott Nichol & HJ Hall.

CS

In a couple of sentences, tell us about Pantherella

EG

Pantherella's reputation is acknowledged both here in England and also by countries globally such as the USA. We've been stocked by Harrods since the 1940s and we've gained followers from style icons and aristocrats to Royals and some dapper dressers along the way.

JM

Pantherella was born in 1937 and is a luxury sock brand which produces the finest socks made using the world’s finest yarns.

CS

What are your favourite Pantherella products? 

EG

I love our Sports Luxe range, I can wear them everywhere from the gym to the school run and still feel stylish and comfortable.

JM

As we are nearing the festive season, I have to opt for our cashmere socks which feel divine and luxurious on – they can also be monogrammed so a perfect gift. 

CS

What kinds of materials are used to make Pantherella socks, and where do you source them from?

JM

We use the finest yarns in the world, many of which are sourced from the finest Italian Mills – Merino Royale, Silk, Organic Cotton, Sea Island Cotton, Cashmere, and Merino Wool to name a few.  

CS

What’s special about the making process? 

EG

For me, the fact that each sock is expertly made with our infamous ‘invisible’ toe seam, making them extra soft and comfortable really makes our socks super special.

JM

Our care and attention to detail, mixed with generations of experience. 

CS

What is a foolproof Pantherella Christmas present?

EG

It’s got to be our 3-Pair Tabitha Cashmere Sock Gift Box, which is one of our best sellers! You can pick your favourite 3 colours and they come beautifully presented in a gift box just perfect for gifting. 

JM

One of our gift boxes pairing 6 pairs of socks and a Luxury scarf would be top of my list.

CS

Why did you decide to partner with Cambridge Satchel?

EG

I’ve loved Cambridge Satchel for many years. The design and quality is just fantastic, so I think we make the perfect fit as we both prioritise expert craftsmanship and English heritage. 

JM

I feel Pantherella and Cambridge Satchel are synonymous brands, both practical with a feeling of luxury and style that you can’t wait to add to your outfit or select your outfit around.  

Make sure to follow both Pantherella and Cambridge Satchel’s Instagram pages in preparation for next week’s competition; and may your Christmas be both cosy and stylish!
