Men’s tailoring business Gieves & Hawkes has renovated its global flagship at 1 Savile Row, London, making way for a wholesale showroom.
The 6,500 sq ft relaunched eighteenth century townhouse, occupied by the business since 1912, is split over two floors and houses ready-to-wear, tailoring and bespoke services, and a military and Royal archive. The wholesale showroom is in the William Kent room upstairs, which used to be the Gieves & Hawkes archive.
Interior designer Teresa Hastings worked alongside chief creative officer Jason Basmajian on restoring and modernising the property over a 12-month period. It now features a fumed oak floor, hand designed furniture and a pale and dark grey colour scheme.
Managing director Ray Clacher said: “I congratulate Teresa, Jason and everyone involved for exceeding the board’s expectations in restoring No.1 Savile Row, the famous heart of Gieves & Hawkes. In so doing, a new standard has been set for the brand’s future around the world.”
