The art of bespoke tailoring is integral to Huntsman. As Huntsman owner and art enthusiast, Pierre Lagrange says “the commissioning of a bespoke suit is much like commissioning a portrait. It is an act of faith”
It is with the same ethos of quality and craftsmanship and attention to detail that Huntsman Creative Director Campbell Carey creates our seasonal Pret-A-Porter offering. Inspired by this, Huntsman introduces The Art Of Dressing Well. A collection of beautifully crafted garments, designed to love, and to last, for Spring and Summer and all warm-weather climates.
Playing with texture, colour, and composition were the inspiration for Campbell in designing this collection. For garments enjoyed at home or abroad, cool linen and cotton trousers, shirts, and jackets are your summer staples. Even conventional suiting has been reimagined in seersucker, a warm-weather favourite. Soft blues, ecru, and crisp white are contrasted with red, burnt tobacco, and greens, for a wardrobe that is enjoyable to mix and match, and effortless to pull together.
House favourite flat-front trousers are complimented with lightweight jackets, including a new style for the season- the linen prince of wales check three-show-two button jacket is a versatile alternative to a coat when buttoned up to excuse those brisk spring winds, or worn open, for high summer soirees.
For our Spring Summer campaign, we collaborated with fellow Savile Row bastion, Hauser & Wirth using their impressive gallery spaces to showcase the new collection. Set against a backdrop of contemporary abstract portraits from the Ideals of the Unfound Truth exhibition by George Condo, classic tailoring styles from the new Huntsman are brilliantly showcased, creating a series of striking portraits.
In the campaign, artwork by George Condo creates rich, immersive backgrounds, and is cleverly juxtaposed with the quiet, negative space of the gallery architecture, allowing you to imagine the transformative quality of these garments, as you transition through the day into the evening, business and leisure, and for travel and socialising.
Designed for the seasons, but created to last a lifetime, these garments fit seamlessly with our entire Ready-To-Wear collection. As always, clients can use Made-To-Order when shopping Spring-Sumer 2022, to customise this collection to their own specifications.
