The best of British were out in force last week as 8 dashing Hackett gentlemen graced the avenues of Dubai Mall dressed in suitably sharp style.
Shoppers watched as the suited and booted British businessmen, dressed in Hackett Mayfair collection suits and vintage style bowler hats bowed to crowds and posed for photos.
What better way to receive an invitation than from a British gentleman? And this is what the shoppers were treated to. Hackett business cards were handed out, with an invitation to attend a Quintessentially British Tea party upstairs at the Hackett boutique.
Whilst sipping on the finest British tea, nibbling on cucumber and salmon sandwiches, guests explored the new coveted Autumn Winter collection. From classic tailoring from the Mayfair collection, sporty and casual polos from the Aston Martin Racing, British country style from the Town and Country or adorable mini British looks from the Little Britons, there was something to take everyone’s eye.
Adding to the ambience, in the centre of the store stood a British tea party set up- think lace table cloths, detailed china tea cups and vintage tea pots. Retro old fashioned MINIs, red telephone boxes and miniature London buses sat comfortably amongst the second hand books and selection of British snacks.
As the boutique filled with guests curious to explore the new collection, the Hackett gentlemen chatted with the crowd and read the respected “London Times” with the collection launch as front page news.
The British businessmen posed for photos, chatted with shoppers, strolled around the mall and hailed taxis. With gathering crowds snapping the scene, it was safe to say Hackett had brought Mr Classic to town.
