Hackett F/W 2010

Hackett's F/W 2010 collection is entitled "In Celebration of Heritage" and, all buzzwords aside, actually seems a tad bit focused on trends.  Shorter and more fitted jacket shapes are the focus here - even according to Hackett themselves.  Luckily, things don't even remotely approach Thom Browne status and the collection actually comes together quite nicely.  It's nothing trailblazing or new, but does stay fairly consistent with the recent image Hackett has been pushing.  Lots of guys familiar with Hackett's rich, and actual, heritage lament the loss of a once great brand who has now gone the way of across the pond Ralph Lauren imitator.  I'm not old enough to remember Hackett's heyday so I'll keep my mouth shut when it comes to that.  All that aside, Hackett's F/W 2010 collection is another exercise in English gentlemanly inspiration, which seems to be trending everywhere recently.  In this case, outdoorsmanship is dropped in favor of a much cleaner, upscale look - think formal wear and lots of tailored pieces.  Select pieces are available now.

  4. Great pictures - I like the advertising.

    The jackets in picture #6 (from the top) and #15 are outstanding.

    Hope all is well, LAS.

  12. I really dig #8 and #16, other than that, it's nothing we haven't seen before from Mr. Lauren, which is lamentable if they actually do have an actual heritage. Also gotta respect the Flusser book on the table in #8.
