Hackett Introduces Luxury Aston Martin Capsule Collection
Hackett’s long-standing relationship with Aston Martin, one of Britain’s most renowned automobile companies, reaches new heights for Autumn/Winter 2016. In line with the reveal of Aston Martin’s highly anticipated DB11, Hackett will launch an exclusive capsule collection entitled Aston Martin by Hackett.
The luxurious 14-piece Aston Martin by Hackett collection includes outerwear, knitwear, shirts, trousers and accessorises. Reflecting on the quintessentially British brand values of both Hackett London and Aston Martin, the new collection is innovative, luxurious and the epitome of style.
Standout pieces include an Italian-made belted field jacket in buttery soft nubuck leather. Engineered with meticulous attention to detail, this classically masculine style is hand-cut with bonded and painted edges and comes in a rich tan colourway. Metallic buttons are engraved with diagonal cross-hatching, inspired by vintage Aston Martin radiator grills which runs throughout the collection.
Additional outerwear pieces include a smooth leather moto jacket in brown and a waterproof and breathable Loro Piana padded field jacket, trimmed in soft suede, available in two colour options - grey and rust. A laser-cut navy nylon mac is perfect for those chilly downpours with a detachable lightweight down liner and precision laser-cut button holes. Using an innovative production method of heat-welded seams, involving no stitching or sewing, enhances the mac’s waterproof qualities.
For something more formal, Hackett’s timeless navy blazer has been
reinterpreted for the Aston Martin by Hackett collection in a padded
water resistant and breathable fabric with a flexible zip-out insert for
those autumnal days. A man’s classic two button wool blazer, in grey or
bold blue, comes with the Aston Martin collection’s signature cross
hatched detailing emblazoned on the inside.
Key knitwear pieces include a cashmere zipped sweater in charcoal or taupe with luxurious leather details reflecting the Aston Martin’s interiors and an insulating down filled knit and merino wool sweater in navy with soft lambswool knitted sleeves and collar. To complete the capsule collection, pieces include a pair of classic grey soft flannel trousers, brushed cotton and cashmere chinos in navy or taupe trimmed with soft suede, cashmere flannel shirts in charcoal, navy and blue, a classic Thomas Mason crease resistant white shirt and a sporty long-sleeve polo shirt in navy or charcoal.
For those weekend getaways, accessories include a large chocolate brown leather weekend bag with brogue detailing and a subtly laser-perforated ‘ASTON MARTIN’ in the supple leather. Black handcrafted gloves with signature metal buttons and hand stitched red detailing are the ideal companion to control the power behind the wheel of the latest Aston Martin DB11.
Each piece in the Aston Martin by Hackett collection has been made using the most luxurious fabrics and finishes and designed to reflect the activity and speed of themodern gentleman’s lifestyle.
The Aston Martin by Hackett collection will be available to purchase from 5th September 2016 on www.hackett.com and across global Hackett flagship stores.
