Hackett X Aston Martin A/W 2016 Collection
What’s better than driving an Aston Martin? Well, driving two Aston Martins realistically just isn’t feasible, so how about driving an Aston Martin wearing a damn-fine outfit tailor made specifically for the vehicle? Because that’s just the level of cool that you’ll be able to achieve with Aston Martin and menswear retailer Hackett having recently announced a new, long-term global partnership.
In line with the recent reveal of Aston Martin’s highly anticipated DB11, Hackett have launched an exclusive capsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 ingeniously titled ‘Aston Martin by Hackett’.
The lavish 14-piece collection includes everything from outerwear to knitwear to accessories, combining the quintessentially British values of both Hackett London and Aston Martin to create the perfect outfit updates for anyone who has ever wanted to live the fast and (not-so) furious life of a well-to-do English gentleman.
Standout pieces include an Italian belted field jacket, made with buttery soft leather and adorned with numerous decoratively engraved metallic buttons. It’s the little touches like the diagonal cross-hatching of the buttons – which take inspiration from the Aston Martin’s iconic grill design – that really set the collection apart from other more cliché collaborations.
The British weather can often be unpredictable, but Hackett have also managed to cover that with a laser-cut navy nylon mac perfect for those rainy days. Using an innovative production method of heat-welded seams, the mac was somehow made without the use of any stitching or sewing. Which is pretty impressive in of itself.
If you really want to go the extra mile, then black handcrafted gloves with signature metal buttons and hand stitched red detailing are also available as the ideal companion to control the wheel of the latest Aston Martin DB11. Because well, let’s be honest, if you’re wearing driving gloves it’s highly unlikely you will have any human companions with you.
Regardless, each piece in the Aston Martin by Hackett collection has been made with the finest attention to detail, using the most luxurious fabrics and finishes to match up to the speed of the modern gentleman’s lifestyle. And with The Aston Martin by Hackett collection being available from 5th September 2016 on www.hackett.com and across global Hackett flagship stores, this is the sort of lifestyle you too could be living. All you need to do is buy a DB11 and completely revamp your entire wardrobe. It’s just that easy.
