The brand, which traces its roots back to 1901, has become popular with fashionistas such as Rita Ora. 

The firm has flourished under private equity firm Permira, which bought it in 2013 and multiplied sales six-fold to £672m. 

It will publish its prospectus today before next month’s share sale. 

The valuation would hand £350m to 22 senior staff including chairman Paul Mason, the Sunday Times reported.
