Ah yes, the iconic English summertime. Many wonderful things have been inspired by this special period – everything from delectable delights like strawberry shortcake and Yorkshire pudding, to a wealth of music and poetry that helps one celebrate the coming of this carefree, relaxing time of the year.
Taking plenty of inspiration from these pleasing cues, Hackett London now presents its Spring/Summer 2020 Collection with an outstanding selection of easygoing wear for the sophisticated gentlemen’s summertime wardrobe.
The collection incorporates a palette of summer fabrics, further accentuated by staple stripes and checks in red, green and blue. Perhaps the perfect combination of attire with which to take in the great British summer with its host of unmissable events throughout its world-famous sporting calendar like Ascot, Wimbledon and Henley Royal Regatta?
Indeed, from enjoying a twisty country road behind the wheel of an open-topped sports car, to soaking up the balmy sun on a cruise aboard a yacht, Hackett London’s carefree ensemble will present one with the perfect wardrobe for a relaxed sense of style.
Highlights from this wonderful collection shows off this season’s key trends: summer shirting, seersucker suiting, tailored jackets and hero outerwear. Pieces come in a palette centered around sophisticated neutrals and buttery pastels, grounded in timeless navy and khaki, the new collection brings character to key moments for the Hackett London man.
The new-season Henley blazer in nautical blue and white stripes was inspired by spectators at Henley Royal Regatta and is cut from a superior cotton-linen blend that was woven in the British Isles by Robert Noble. Its removable gilet makes for the perfect transitional piece as we move into the new season. It’s made with the finest blend of wool and linen, with a notch lapel and patch pockets. And your perfect off-duty spring jacket comes via a contemporary take on the traditional blouson jacket.
For the office, explore softly textured suits cut in smooth tropical-weight wool that resists creasing, making them ideal for business, travel or a weekend in the country. Or work some colour and texture into your wardrobe with the lightweight and breathable délavé linen blazers, which come in shades including pink, light blue and sage.
Certainly, updating your wardrobe for the new season just became a properly enticing prospect, especially when the new clothes in question carry the hallmarks of such a pleasant, lively and harmonious time!
