London, June 16, 2012 – The roaring twenties were an era marked by prosperity, high fashion and of course the American prohibition. It brought us art deco, jazz and the flapper. Hackett London has harnessed this early 1920s styling for a Spring/Summer 2013 Collection befitting of Jay Gatsby himself.
Smartly tailored cream and mismatched peaked-lapel three-piece suits are country club ready, complimented by club-collared dress shirts and tie bars. Silk pocket squares add a soft dash of colour and the footwear in this show couldn’t look better.
Half way into the collection, Hackett changes direction going very Etro meets 1960s Carnaby Street by way of bold patterns and oversized scarves. We are grounded with several smart colour blocked ensembles and close with quintessential smartly dressed British chaps donning bowlers and brollies. Undoubtably one of the best SS13 men’s collections coming out of London this past weekend.
