Heritage label Hawes & Curtis unveiled a spectacular partnership with new Hollywood blockbuster The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – creating a stylish collection of ‘60s-inspired outfits influenced by the movie.
Producing high quality clothing for gentlemen and ladies since 1913, and boasting three Royal Warrants during that period, Jermyn St favourite Hawes & Curtis has evolved into a lifestyle brand which encompasses quintessential British style.
The classic remake of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Henry Cavill, provides the brand with the perfect opportunity to showcase its phenomenal heritage which has long been acclaimed by aristocracy and Hollywood’s elite.
Hawes & Curtis has interpreted three iconic scenes from the movie which hits the big screen next month, and shows how you can get the look.
For men, exquisitely tailored suits and shirts from the company’s premium 1913 Collection steal the show. The suits are made from the finest Italian wool while the supersoft shirts are made from 140s cotton and feature some stunning additional details such as Mother of Pearl buttons.
Tie-pins and pocket squares add sartorial flourishes and showcase a welcome return to the days when dressing to the nines was important seven days a week.
For woman, Monochrome rules the roost, with zebra print blouses, ice-white shirts and printed neck scarves. The silhouette is just as sleek as the men, with high-waisted pencil skirts, flared minis and structured shirts cutting a dash.
The Reasons Behind It
The film is a perfect fit for Hawes & Curtis which was founded in 1913 by Ralph Hawes and Freddie Curtis and boasts an impressive heritage few can match with a clientele which included everyone from the Duke of Windsor to Cary Grant.
This summer it unveiled the first casual wear collection in its history and has proved that being well dressed isn’t simply confined to formalwear.
Owner Touker Suleyman, said the partnership with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. would highlight the best of what Hawes & Curtis had to offer.
“As soon as we saw the trailer for the film we knew it had bags of style,” he said. “Whether hero or villain, all of the characters were impeccably dressed and we are delighted to work in partnership to produce some sartorial collections of our own.
“Hawes & Curtis has always been famous for its shirts but now we are much more than this and the evolution is incredibly exciting.”
