Huntsman’s Creative Director Campbell Carey pays homage to and draws inspiration from our 100 years on Savile Row with the Huntsman Autumn-Winter 2019 Ready To Wear collection, with key outerwear pieces designed in an exclusive, overcheck tweed and cashmere designed using cloth from our archive tweed ledger.
February 2020 also sees the release of the third installment of Matthew Vaughn’s trilogy, the ‘King’s Man’- a prequel set around World War 1. As always, Campbell was heavily involved in the design and production of the period wardrobe pieces for the lead characters, with styling inspiration for our collection taken from the period and from our own archive of both military and civilian garments.
In this collection, you’ll find elegant separates, nuanced with history, cut to our iconic Huntsman block. The result, a collection of timelessly elegant pieces.
Huntsmans Creative Director Campbell Carey was introduced through the wardrobe department of the Kingsman movie, to a previously unknown commission weaving mill on the edge of the Saddleworth Moor. This 5th generation mill founded in 1863 has produced four exclusive tweeds for our perennial, signature house style tweed jackets which complete the collection.
In our 100 years on Savile Row, our Ready-to-wear collection was first added to Huntsman’s portfolio in 1960, by no less than our legendary head cutter Colin Hammick.
Our Ready to Wear collection has been a staple ever since, with guidance on our current collections provided by Creative Director and Head Cutter, Campbell Carey. With over 20 years of experience in luxury bespoke tailoring, as Head Cutter, Carey continues our long tradition of superior bespoke cutting, and is responsible for ensuring that the house’s ready-to-wear incorporates an authentic sense of Huntsman’s bespoke signature, as well as ensuring that our bespoke department furthers its focus on quality and attention to craft.
