British Brands Work Together On AW14 Pieces
Hackett is set to expand its product range next month through two collaborations with a total of three British brands.
Partnerships with English shoemaker Joseph Cheaney & Sons, cloth producer Fox Brothers and accessory manufacturer Bill Amberg have been formed by the men’s lifestyle label for AW14.
The project with Cheaney and Fox Brothers will see a range of shoes and boots launched in a limited run of 150 per style. Six models, each made from burnished British leather in brown and black, feature wool cloths in check and herringbone patterns.
In addition, Bill Amberg has created a line of bags in vegetable tanned leather. Backpacks come in black with red felt and brown with navy felt, while briefcases have been made in black with red canvas interior and brown with navy canvas interior. Both feature a perforated Hackett logo and umbrella carrier.
The Joseph Cheaney & Sons x Fox Brothers shoes will be available to buy in the UK from Hackett’s Regent Street and Sloane Street stores, priced from £375. The Bill Amberg bags will be available from other select stores, retailing from £495. Both collections, set for a November release, will also be available online.
