The other day I was hurrying to get to a meeting in Causeway Bay, when I a passed by this interesting window for the relatively newly established Hackett London flagship store across the street from Lee Gardens One. Against an unfortunately minimal ounce of hesitation on my end, and owing to the fact that walking into Hackett London’s Hong Kong store for the first time would most likely give me informative content for this style blog… I gingerly ventured in like some soldier of duty for all you readers.
I walked out with this jumper almost an hour later.
Thank you very much… 30% Off End of Season Sale. The choice was between that above, and this below.
A brand of the 80’s, Hackett is essentially a modern menswear lifestyle label focused on a style that is essentially and classically 100% English, yet with a contemporary twist.
The Hackett Shop in Hong Kong, big by any standards for this city with menswear and kids clothing in stock, is apparently a mere fraction of its globally iconic, Sloane Street flagship with lifestyle offerings way beyond what we have here.
Offerings in the UK include a spectacle range, grooming products, and barbers.
That said, men who visit the store in Hong Kong can enjoy personal and bespoke tailoring, and a bit of a drink in the bar.
I snooped on the Tailor at work.
As well as enjoyed laying out some key pieces on the adjacent fitting table.
Here are some key #JJStyle looks that the staff helped me put together. This one is me channeling classic Dr. Who.
And perhaps… my favorite look of the two, Dr. Who now.
The Hackett Hong Kong shop is split up among two levels, with different rooms catering to different looks. Some rooms are geared to formal looks, while others are geared to more casual sporty looks, and there’s a room for that safari travel look. There’s even a room for kids.
This room below is an homage to the English member’s only dining clubs.
Complete with British-centric books to peruse.
There’s also plenty of accessories of which to choose from.
And ties of a full range.
Made In England.
It sure is!
Hackett’s founders, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings’, portraits adorn the shop’s staircase walls.
I love this decor.
It’s good to have a bit of variety for menswear in this town don’t you think?
Here are some key looks for Spring-Summer 2014 via the label’s creative director, Michael Sondag (previously Tommy Hilfiger.) This season’s styles are inspired by the candid photographs of Terry O’Neill, the work of David Hockney (a recurring theme within most labels this season), and the things and objects one can find in the artist’s atelier.
Quite quirky and modern isn’t it?
