Hackett Goes East
December 3, 2014
One year after Hackett opened their 9,000 square feet London store on Regent Street, the brand’s biggest ever, the quintessential British men’s outfitter has opened up shop east.
In a slightly more intimate setting, the new 1600 square feet store at 55 Old Broad Street in the City still packs a punch. Georgian influences juxtapose the new, with the collection offered over five rooms separated and linked through panelled Georgian archways, floor-to-ceiling glass panels, and granite and limestone flooring.
The Casual and Mayfair collections sit alongside a selection of artwork by Brian Blow, a British artist renowned for his 1950/60’s graphic prints, which are used in store amongst an eclectic mix of artist sketches, period prints and campaign photography. Iconic furniture by British designer James Harrison was hand-chosen to provide a welcoming comfort, with his pieces sitting alongside and complementing the more traditional ones which are also be used as selling space.
But of course, every banker needs a suit, and Hackett’s extensive Bespoke, Made-to-Measure and Personal Tailoring services are all here too, despite its size. With this, and the separation of each of the collections in its own room, the City customer is provided with an intimate and personal shopping experience. As well as offering a fully bespoke service on suiting, the store also offers personal tailoring on ties and bespoke cufflinks. In addition, embroidery on shirting and foil embossing of leather goods will be available to add the finishing touches.
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
Hackett is open now at 55 Broad Street, London
