Henley Royal Regatta was first held in 1839 and has since become one of Britain’s most distinguished summer sporting events. For the second year running, Hackett London has been appointed its official clothing partner. In keeping with the regatta’s dress code, Hackett has created the outfits for the stewards and official representatives as well as unveiling a capsule collection for fans of the event; the Hackett Henley collection consists of smart separates and casual pieces.
Striped blazers are a highlight of the collection, in a nod to the traditional flannel blazers that were designed to keep rowers warm and were adorned with different stripes to help onlookers identify the teams. Stripes appear throughout the Hackett Henley collection, on blazers and trousers. These are available as suit separates or can be worn together for an eye-catching full look. Those wanting something a little more casual should choose from the range of polo shirts, T-shirts, shirts, jumpers and jogging bottoms. Using a fittingly nautical colour scheme of navy, sky blue and white, the collection is a true celebration of the historical sporting event.
The collection is in stores now and will be available for the duration of Henley Royal Regatta, which is being held from 4 to 8 July 2018.
