Aston Martin has been delighting the world with its British luxury cars for over a century, and is it any wonder that the brand is James Bond’s ride of choice? Sleek and refined, the name Aston Martin connotes all that is cool, swanky, and downright sexy.
Hackett is another brand beloved by the British elite, but one that operates in a different industry: fashion. Founded in 1979, the shop initially focused on fine second-hand men’s clothing. In 1985, Hackett was transformed into a label that designed and manufactured its own clothing, making waves in the world of luxury men’s fashion with its flagship store on London’s Sloan Street.
Hackett began working with Aston Martin’s racing division in 2005, and the companies have enjoyed a lasting partnership. In 2013, James Bond himself—actor Pierce Brosnan—became the face of the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2013 and Spring/Summer 2013 lines.
Inspired by the quality and performance of both luxury brands, the Third Aston Martin Capsule Collection (Autumn/Winter 2017) offers nineteen pieces in a muted masculine colour palate of navies, browns, and greys. Present at the core of the collection are lustrous leather jackets made from deerskin and high quality neoprene panels for maximum comfort and flexibility. The line also features highly tailored men’s outwear, blazers, shirts, trousers, and accessories.
Aston Martin by Hackett is set to become the uniform of choice this fall for those slipping behind the wheel of the 2017 Aston Martin DB11. Come on, gentlemen — engines at the ready.
