For Autumn / Winter 2018 Gieves & Hawkes takes to the sea, reimaging its rich, naval heritage in a wardrobe inspired by the Golden Age of British exploration. Mythical motifs and refined, masculine contours inform the season’s style, resulting in a ready to wear collection of timeless, maritime elegance and modern practicality.
Guided by creative director, John Harrison, the Autumn / Winter 2018 collection moves away from the landed, sporting themes of the summer towards intrepid notions of a romantic naval past.
The season draws on Gieves & Hawkes’ historic and unique connection to the sea, employing a colour palette of lavishly dark hues, and contrasting bold silhouettes with softer textures. Ropes, knots and Victorian sea creatures form the basis of the collection’s more playful nautical imagery, balanced with classic checks and plaids.
