Hackett’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection encompasses a wardrobe to dress Hackett’s ‘Little Britons’ for their adventures in and outside of school.
‘The Polite Generation’; a range for activities taken place on the playing field and around the school hall is inspired by the conventional preppy styling in Britain’s established public schools. Red, royal blue and gold make up the colour palette consisting of traditional rugby and college colours with an autumnal feel. The collection is made up of rugby tops, t-shirts and knitwear featuring collegiate language and heraldic badges. Key pieces include long sleeve t-shirts with humorous slogans such as ‘it’s never me’ and ‘I know, I know!’ which sit alongside a series of t-shirts and knitwear with ‘Hackett Academy’ emblems. A standout piece is the burgundy and navy bomber jacket in soft and lightweight merino wool that retains heat; a perfect outerwear piece for those chilly winter evenings.
A new theme within the ‘Little Britons’ collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 is ‘SW1’, which gives a nod to Hackett’s Sloane Street store postcode; the first flagship. The range reflects the son of the quintessential British father with sophisticated, casual pieces that have minimal branding in a colour palette of navy, blue, grey and neutrals. Classic chinos are teamed with cotton chambray and pique polo’s worn under a navy quilted outerwear piece or a brown classic tweed jacket. Hackett’s finest tailoring is reproduced in a three piece flannel suit available in navy or grey, perfect occasionwear for the true gentleman in the making. Stand out pieces include the reversible herringbone print gilet and the double breasted merino wool cardigan available in navy or light blue, adding a touch of classic understated style to the ‘Little Britons’ wardrobe.
For Autumn/Winter 2016, the ‘Little Britons’ Aston Martin Racing collection takes inspiration from their fathers range but with a youthful twist. The colour palette consists of bold sporty colours of blues, red/orange and charcoal grey. New car terminology graphics are added to polos and knitwear such as ‘Race Team’ and ‘Endurance’ ensuring that the budding boy racers feel part of the Aston Martin Racing team when wearing the clothing. Stand out pieces include the crew jumper in the new high risk red colour and the quilted fleece jacket available in navy and grey.
