This brand creates glitzy phone cases, headphones and handbags. Its accessories are aimed at 18 to 25-year olds and celebrity fans include the singer Miley Cyrus. Two brothers, James, 31, and Richard Gold, 29, founded the business with their friend Lewis Blitz, 30, in 2011. They have since expanded beyond their London base, with shops in Sheffield, Plymouth and New York. Skinnydip also trades online and through more than 200 concessions in chains such as Topshop. Weekly product launches and a strong presence on social media — including more than 400,000 followers on Instagram — helped sales reach £12.8m last year.
