Huntsman RTW SS16 Collection

Huntsman’s Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection reflects the timeless style, superior craftsmanship and clean-cut elegance of Huntsman’s bespoke clothing.

Tailoring mirrors the Huntsman’s bespoke house style, hand-cut and sewn entirely in England. Shirting comes care of Jermyn Street’s Emma Willis and accessories and neckties are sourced throughout England.
This collection is the first created by Creative Director and Co-Head Cutter, Campbell Carey, and is designed to offer Huntsman customers a wealth of versatile, quintessential British summer staples; carefully crafted investment pieces which will wear beautifully for years to come.

 Suits and separates are cut in herringbones and hopsacks that lend themselves to a soft, contemporary look. Suitings are lightweight wool, designed to both travel and breathe easily, whilst separates range from lightweight navy cashmere blazers, to soft cream and ecru blended sports coats.

 The colour palette is ecru and ivory sitting alongside classic navy, English cornflower blue and soft sky blue for a pop of colour.
 Shirting comes in either linen or sea island cottons, in luxurious 2 fold 100s in white, blues and gentle Bengal stripes in pastels, ideal for pairing with your summer suiting or sports coats.

 Designed by Carey and made by esteemed shirt maker Emma Willis, in her award winning Gloucestershire workshop using traditional techniques, featuring hand trimmed and turned collars, cuffs and single-needle stitching. Finished with a split-yoke for comfort, easy-wearing button-cuffs and mother of pearl buttons.
Campbell worked with Emma Willis not only to produce the perfectly proportioned spread collar to sit beneath a tailored jacket, but has also created an entirely new shirt silhouette, exclusive to Huntsman.
 In two fits (slim and classic), every shirt features a gentle hourglass waist and clean sleeves that define the figure without being either too slim or too loose. The shirting mirror’s the perfect lines of Huntsman’s signature one-button suit coat and are designed to sit perfectly beneath their tailoring.

Sports coats are half-lined for comfort and finished with patch pockets for a relaxed aesthetic, whilst a generous selection of separate trousers in either summer-weight cotton or lightweight wool, offers the perfect pairing.

 Campbell has also introduced a range of sophisticated, perennial eveningwear looks, creating our iconic house-style dinner dress in ready-to-wear withthe  signature shawl-collar single- breasted dinner suit in black barathea,and midnight blue single-breasted dinner jacket.

Making actual history, Huntsman is now the first Savile Row tailor to have ‘opened up shop’ in New York, with their new ‘appointment only’ pied-a-terre on 57th Street.
The pied-a-terre marks the first Huntsman location outside of Savile Row.

With an estimated 60 percent of Huntsman’s clientele being based in the U.S., the 57th Street location will serve as an environment where the brand can privately host and provide a further elevated service to clients.

The pied-a-terre, intimate and private in nature in midtown Manhattan, Huntsman New York will be located at 130 West 57th Street, 7th floor, and appointments may be made by email or phone.

 “In a 167 year old business, there are traditions to nurture and others to challenge. While making garments by hand in a similar was as they were in 1849 ensures a quality rarely equaled with modern techniques, in today’s world, I felt we should be closer and able to better serve our clients in America, where the largest Huntsman client base lives and works. A New York presence was a logical next step, and with our pied-a-terre we’re able to bring a little bit of our iconic Savile Row environment to the U.S.” says Pierre Lagrange, Chairman and Owner of Huntsman, regarding the New York opening.

The Quiet Rebellion Sock

London – Quiet Rebellion’s quirky socks are infiltrating the office! Across the world, office workers are dipping their toes into this mischievous and secret act of defiance.
 QR socks appear plain and conformist to the untrained eye, while inconspicuously concealing whacky patterns below the ankle. Put simply, they are socks of two halves: a respectable top with wild and colourful soles.

 Each pair of socks comes with a biography about the rebel its celebrates and arrives in a mysterious, hand-wrapped package – sealed with a wax seal.
 Quiet Rebellion was founded by Alex and Ini, two best of best mates from university, who found mindlessly conforming to the corporate world.
Nothing depressed them more than dragging on their plain, dull work socks every morning… and this is their wonderfully novel, somewhat nerdy but indisputably comfy solution.
 Alex argues: “With that secret knowledge you’re expressing a bit of personality, even if it’s only within your shoe, suddenly the work days don’t seem so bad!”
 More about Quiet Rebellion’s wonder weave:
 • luxury combed cotton composition
 • extra length to keep those hairy legs concealed at all times
 • hand-linked toes to remove any irritation form unwanted seams
 • reinforced heels for greater durability
 • cuffs that don’t leave marks and have patterns on the inside

More men than ever are shaving less and today, almost half  [Simpson Carpenter Quantitative study, May 2015] are choosing not to pick up their razor to avoid a common battle with irritation.

With 125 years under their belt in razor production, Wilkinson Sword has unveiled the revolutionary new, Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5, engineered to offer improved skin protection whilst shaving.
 With technology that surpasses the outdated lubrication strips,

Wilkinson Sword has raised the game once again, equipping the razor with innovative gel pools designed for an improved glide to give the best protection from irritation.

 Helping to eradicate the challenges that the shaving routine presents, the latest innovation will also be rolled out across the full Hydro range [Full range consists of Hydro 3, Hydro 5, Hydro Power 5 Select and Hydro 5 Groomer] – presenting pioneering features that cannot be found on any other razor to deliver skin protection and a more comfortable shave:

 1. Hydrating Gel Pools: Lasting up to twice as long as other lubrication strips on the market, the gel pools deliver 40 per cent less friction [In comparison to a lubricating strip found on most razors today] than any other razor brand. The gel ensures a super-thick coverage to spread evenly across the face, leaving the skin feeling protected through every stroke and hydrated for up to one hour after each shave – something a conventional strip can’t do.
 2. Flip Trimmer: Rather than struggling to reach difficult contours of the face - with a simple flick of the thumb - the hydrating gel pools flip back to reveal five blades that deliver parallel precision and control.
 3. Advanced Skin Guards and Reduced Blade Span: The guard bars and reduced blade span have been redesigned to improve comfort, safety and prevent skin pinching.
 4. The Handle: With an upgraded colour palette, the ergonomic handle gives the razor a full range of motion fitting perfectly in the hand and providing guys with a more comfortable hold and control whilst shaving.

 In addition, with 71 per cent [Kantar] of men claiming to have sensitive skin, Wilkinson Sword has also launched Hydro 5 Sensitive.
The only 5-blade sensitive razor on the market.
Containing all of the innovative features found in the Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5, but with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E built into the hydration gel pools to help soothe skin that is prone to being sensitive.
