Brits Do It Best
Arguably the worldwide capital of impeccably tailored menswear, London is the birthplace of myriad razor-sharp, now globally-renowned brands, including Burberry, Alfred Dunhill, and Paul Smith. And now Hong Kong, long a Brit style-loving stronghold, is poised to get just as well-acquainted with the latest of the big guns to come Island-side – Hackett London, whose sleek, clubby, bi-level flagship has just opened its doors in shopping central Causeway Bay.
Founded in 1979 by Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings, Hackett quickly became known for its fresh and inventive take on classic Savile Row style, as well as its associations with iconic sporting events and clubs such as the Henley Regatta and the English Rugby Union team.
Today, with ranges including Modern Prep, Mayfair and Town & Country, Hackett clothing and accessories span casual, sport and formalwear, with all lines displaying the core vintage-meets-modern design DNA of classic colours, patterns and fabrics with contrasting vibrant twists.
Expect to find double-breasted trench coats, waxed duffels and quilted parkas alongside chic flannel suiting, lambswool knitwear, tweed blazers, emblem sportswear and black tie occasion-wear. There’s also a full range of accessories including belts, braces, socks, scarves and leatherwear, and even a kid’s line available on the ground floor. Seeking style revamp, young or old? Easy – go, Britannia!
