Hackett London’s latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2010 symbolises British style today. Drawing inspiration from the most British of sporting pursuits, the collection evokes the spirit of rugby, rowing and car racing.
The collection ranges from impeccably tailored suits and shirts, through to chunky knitwear, modern tweeds and even performance garments, reinforcing Hackett’s reputation as a menswear label that seamlessly fuses tradition and modernity.
The AW10 range includes 6 main collections: Mayfair, Rally, Oxford Blues, Alpine, Winter Spa and Aston Martin Racing.
The Mayfair collection features slim fit tailored silhouettes, with flannel 3 piece suits, luxurious merino pullovers, cashmere v neck sweaters, shawl collar wool cardigans, knitted ties, double breasted woven tweed jackets, pinstripe trousers, fine gauge polos and selvedge denim jeans. The range has also launched a luggage collection with Globe-Trotter, featuring leather holdalls and briefcases.
