Gieves & Hawkes SS19
Way back in the 19th century, Gieves & Hawkes was a prominent outfitter to explorers and adventurers. Fast fowled to 2019, and the Creative Director John Harrison has tapped into this history for the brands latest spring collection.
Drawing on famous explorers and botanists of the day, their expeditions and the botanicals they they found, the new collection features beautiful rich textures and relaxed styling. Shot on location in Ibiza (surely a first for any Savile Row brand) the whole range is typically sophisticated and simple at the same time.
Vibrant colours are an absolute key feature - typical spring pastels are replaced by saturated topical tones, with archive prints referencing flora and fauna recorded in the journals of 19th century explorers. Technical rainwear is the outerwear highlight, with the sand treated cotton hooded cape jacket & deep green bonded raincoat designed to be worn nonchalantly over tailoring.
Turning to that suiting, the signature silhouette remains but has been softened by lightweight canvases, lighter shoulder pads and relaxed waists which all make for a more comfortable summer suit.
