Hackett’s new Savile Row store to open in the autumn
today Jul 30, 2019
The British brand, owned by Pepe Jeans, has confirmed a return to the renowned street where its founder Jeremy Hackett began his career in the Seventies. He later went on to set up his first store on the King’s Road in Chelsea in 1983.
The new flagship store will host the brand’s bespoke tailoring service as well as limited edition collections, exclusive collaborations and a curated edit of ready-to-wear pieces.
“I am so thrilled that Hackett will be opening on the world-famous Savile Row, where I once worked when I first came to London back in the early 1970s. I was immediately besotted by the idea of handmade clothing and when I first opened Hackett it was inspired by Savile Row - albeit ready to wear,” said Jeremy Hackett, who now chairs the brand.
Hackett will take up residence in a unit previously occupied by luxury fashion house Hardy Amies until it fell into administration in January.
“I remember serving the great Hardy Amies, who was a true gentleman. Little did I think that all these years later I would be opening a shop in his old premises, alongside such esteemed tailors,” Jeremy Hackett commented, describing Savile Row as “the most renowned street for men’s tailoring”.
Julian Stocks, CEO at Pollen Estate, added: “We are delighted to welcome J.P.Hackett to Savile Row, an exciting addition to the historic street’s esteemed occupants. The introduction of the bespoke experience will cement Hackett’s global reputation for luxury and with it, perfectly complement the renowned tailors along the Row.”
Hackett London also has stores in the nearby Regent Street and Jermyn Street. In total, the brand has over 160 stores globally.
