Field Grey Portrait Series: Meet the team at Brindisa, Borough Market


After our first feature at Allpress Dalston, the second stop on our portrait-taking tour this month took us to Tapas Brindisa in Borough Market.

Tapas Brindisa and Brindisa Kitchens are icons of the London tapas scene, and their unrivalled cuisine has made them the go-to destination for Spanish food. Field Grey designed and produced a range of embroidered polo shirts and aprons, inspired by the restaurants’ artisan and earthy interiors. The deep blue polo shirts feature the brand’s famous bull embroidered on the reverse, while the brown duck cotton aprons, with black herringbone ties, feature two large utility pockets.

The team are renowned for their warm hospitality, Spanish-style, shown here with a selection of staff from the Borough Market site. Also reflected in these portraits is the vibrant, hectic atmosphere of Borough Market – where, despite numerous competitors and imitators, Brindisa remains the area’s hotspot, with queues around the block.
