It was 2008. Hugo was living in London doing a very sensible corporate job. When Bella walked into the office and changed the game forever. A girl can do that to a guy.
Like most relationships in their early stages there was a fair bit of showing off, trying to outdo each other with little gifts. Only Bella was annoyingly good at it.
These gifts ranged from persuading the pizza guy to write 'get well soon Hottie' onto the box when Hugo was too ill to leave my flat, a custom made bright yellow umbrella - to stand out against a sea of black ones - to the perfect little grooming kit to accompany a surprise weekend away to Berlin; Bella always nailed it. Which got them thinking... and in 2012 Men's Society was born and they put Bella’s gifting skills into action full time.
Like a lot of businesses, theirs was founded and created at the kitchen table. Ambitions were dreamt around it, ideas sketched on it and product made at it. The business has grown (along with the family) and they now work with some of the top retailers in the world but still make everything by hand, in Britain and they're super proud of that. Although they may have out grown the original table, they still hold the same dreams, drive and attention to detail that they had at that kitchen table all those years ago.
Their aim is to redefine the idea of mens' gifts. To create products that are culturally relevant with a deep sense of British quality, craftsmanship and wit. From trend-setting natural cosmetics, homewares and gifts.
From their studio in Norfolk we design and make every one of their cosmetics and kits by hand. Producing each of their natural grooming products in small batches, to keep the ingredients as fresh and potent as possible.
They create unique whimsical men’s gifts designed to delight the recipient with its style and contents.
