When I arrived at the Hackett showroom on Bond Street, it was not quite what I was expecting. I did not expect such a beautiful, grand and vast showroom. It really is quite spacious with more than one floor and several large rooms. There was a lot to see with not a single dull item in sight. One of the highlights was the collaration between Hackett, Fox Brothers and Cheaney for the shoes that will be available in the autumn. They really are beautiful and make wonderful additions to any man’s collection of shoes. The three giant heritage brands are joining forces to create six styles of brogue shoes and boots. They are designed to compliment Hackett’s signature suiting and can of course we worn without them too. I greatly love the check, tweed and herringbone designs.
For autumn and winter, the brand is celebrating the age of stylish travelling. The Hackett man is a global traveller. It is inspired by the golden age of travel and the lifestyle of a man who enjoys formal dining in the country and attends meetings in the city. A man of the world. Several pieces in the collection are made from crease-free fabrics, with great emphasis on layering. Detachable linings and reversible coats offer versatility. Statement pieces include a slate-coloured reversible blazer with one side offering nylone, and wool on the other, and a hooded shaved shearling coat in rich moss colour. There is so much in the collection I want. The velvet slippers in green, blue, red and black are all greatly desired and the bow ties are well worth adding to your wardrobe. The entire shoe collection is excellent from the grain leather pairs, to suede loafers and the Hackett x Fox Brothers x Cheaney are must haves. I am also madly in love with the magnificent blue velvet double breasted tuxedo. Beautiful!
