Reflecting the weekend lifestyle of a Hackett gentleman, the Hackett London SS16 mainline collection is built for the modern man who is effortlessly stylish, not only in his work environment, but in his personal life as well.
Separates are a key element for this collection, featuring easily mixed and matched jackets and trousers. The soft and lightweight linen plaid jacket holds a striking pattern that gives the summertime fashion a twist when teamed with a pair of jeans or chinos. A colour palette of blue, beige and khaki, bold and chunky knits in shades of blue, and striped patterns over poplin and collarless shirts, swim shorts, and cotton chinos – casual wear necessities for British summer nights.
Outerwear pieces are lightweight and cool, such as the signature piece packable mac. Available in olive or navy hues, it is lightweight and completely waterproof, easy to squeeze into a weekender for a spontaneous getaway. Speaking of, this season features brown leather and canvas holdalls in various shapes and sizes. Not to mention, a new range of backpacks with stand out pieces like the stripe backpack in blue and navy, and the waterproof backpack in navy.
Now that your weekends are settled, the premium range Hackett Mayfair caters to your sartorial requirements for your fast-paced lifestyle, with highly luxurious pieces that take you from the office to a restaurant or cocktail bar.
Check suits dominate the Hackett Mayfair’s tailoring collection in classic and slim fitting styles. The finest fabrics and trims are used with great attention, encapsulating the essence of the timeless tailored suit. Key pieces include the classic navy check six-button double-breasted suit in a straight hemmed style made from the finest Loro Piana wool, as well as a classic grey check single-breasted suit made from British wool of the renowned Fox Brothers mill.
Blue, cream, green, tan, and grey come in soft tailoring pieces that are worn as separates, whereas lightweight deconstructed jackets of cotton blends are worn over pique or cotton polos teamed with chinos. Other notable pieces are the lightweight Prince of Wales check jacket in blue, and the silk/linen blend check jacket in tan. Besides that, suede materials are prominent throughout the premium collection, seen on a bomber jacket and a quilted gilet, available in both navy or tan colours, as well as a four-pocket suede jacket in tan.
A range of Egyptian luxury cotton formal shirts are made from the prized Giza 87 cotton, whereby the more they are washed, the brighter and more brilliant they become. Matched with these shirts are a formal range of accessories; classic work and city bags made from saffiano leather, cabin holdalls, document cases and briefcases in navy and brown, and the small document wallet in bright orange for that extra pop of colour.
The Hackett London and Hackett Mayfair SS16 collections are now available at the Hackett London boutiques located at Pavilion KL and KLCC.
