The moment I found out the Hackett London invite made it to my hotel, I was literally jumping up and down. This was the first time I went to London for the London Collections and being invited to Monday’s highlight is pretty amazing.
Held in the crypt of St. Paul’s Cathedral – marvelous, just marvelous! – the Hackett London Fall Winter 2013-14 fashion show was all about the reincarnation of the British icons and characters that inspired Hackett throughout the years. Coats in rich tweeds and velvets are worn over jewel-toned waistcoats. Eveningwear is given an unexpected twist with check capes and tartan trousers. An overall grey-on-grey collection with accents of burnt orange, burgundy and turquoise.
I describe my style as ‘rock dandy’ and Hackett London is maybe a bit too classic for me, but that turquoise velvet blazer is definitely on my wishlist next Fall. Perfection!
