1 | New Hackett Store in the City
Recently opened on Old Broad Street, Hackett’s new city store is just the pace for our style conscious brothers in the square mile to get kitted out. With wood paneling, granite and limestone flooring, plus floor to ceiling glass throughout, the store resonates with the brand’s Georgian aesthetic.
A sense of modernity has been achieved by the inclusion of furniture by James Harrison and artworks by the late, great Brian Blow. The five-roomed store presents every Hackett collection - from suiting to casual wear to accessories - but best of all, the bespoke service is available in store, which is reason enough to pay a visit.
Hackett, 55 Old Broad Street, EC2M.
2 | Bulgari Maouri Watch
Made in conjunction with New Zealand international team, Bulgari’s new Octo All Black Special Edition challenges the notion that rugby players are devoid of style. "The OCTO All Blacks embodies the core values of two brands that are part of the global elite, both universally recognized for their strong passion, commitment, teamwork," says Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin. Who could argue with that?
Octo All Blacks, £6100. Available in Bulgari boutiques.
3 | Farah X Urban Outfitters
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. A phrase, we imagine, that came up when Farah and Urban Outfitters considered the continuation of their joint collaboration. As you can see, the caspsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2014 has a focus on graphic prints (many of which created by British illustrator Em Prové), but the knitwear selection is also worth a mention, and the overall autumnal colour palette makes for great wearing this season.
Available in store and at urbanoutfitters.com
4 | New Omega Oxford Street Store
Omega’s new Oxford Street flagship opens its doors this weekend. Set across two opulent stories, the store’s design is inspired by the natural elements of air, water and sunlight, so it’s a bright and roomy space. But there’s also a private VIP room on the first floor for guests to view Omega’s range of fine timepieces in peace, good to know if you’re in the mood for an afternoon of watch perusal. The store will stock the Swiss marque’s classics and new creations, as well as a handsome range of fine jewellery, accessories and leather goods.
Omega London Flagship, 431 Oxford Street, W1C.
