British heritage menswear brand Hackett London will open a flagship store on Savile Row.
The new store will be at 14 Savile Row, an 8,056 sq ft premises that will become the brand’s official home for bespoke tailoring. It will also offer limited edition collections, collaborations and a curated range of ready to wear pieces.
The store was the original home of Hardy Amies, which entered administration in January.
Jeremy Hackett, co-founder of the brand said: ”I am so thrilled that Hackett will be opening on the world-famous Savile Row, where I once worked when I first came to London back in the early 1970s. I was immediately besotted by the idea of handmade clothing and when I first opened Hackett it was inspired by Savile Row - albeit ready to wear. I remember serving the great Hardy Amies, who was a true gentleman. Little did I think that all these years later I would be opening a shop in his old premises, alongside such esteemed tailors.”
Hackett currently has around 160 stores globally.
The news follows the launch of Hackett London’s diffusion line, HKT, in January - aimed a younger and more urban customer.
Property agents CBRE, Colliers and KLM Retail advised on the deal.
