If the little man in your life fancies himself as one of the Beckham boys then you have to check out Hackett boys Spring/Summer collection for 2011. Hackett has taken boyswear to a stylish and sophisticated new level as it incorporates the best bits from the menswear collection. Hackett’s range of clothing is designed to bring out your boys personality and has everything from casual to formal wear. The range includes jerseys, knitwear, shirts, sports inspired pieces, outerwear and accessories. Hackett have four key looks in their Spring/Summer boy’s collection, all of which reflect the luxury and seamless fusion of tradition and modernity for which Hackett has become renowned.
Expedition: This look is for those boys who love a bit of adventure. Cargo shorts and safari jackets with lots of pockets make for practical, cool and casual clothing. The distressed prints and washed casual styles create a relaxed look perfect for those outdoorsy boys.
Aston Martin Racing: The Aston Martin Racing collection is ideal for those budding road-warriors. This range features go-faster stripes and ‘sponsored’ branding on tops and zip-through jackets. These pieces, like the classic leather jacket and jeans, are cool and sophisticated with a sporty twist. The collection is created in a colour palette of royal blue, crisp white and scarlet.
Nautical: While the nautical look has been around for the past few Spring/Summer seasons, this time round Hackett have made the look a little classier. They have stuck with the traditional colour palette of red, white and navy and have included pieces such as chinos, smart sweaters and knitwear. Elbow patches, striped linings and nautical stripes all feature.
Caribbean: If your boy is mad for soaking up a bit of sun then the Caribbean collection will suit him perfectly. This range features Caribbean colours such as bright limes, tangerines and fuchsias. There are strong aquatic influences with blues, turquoise and surf inspired prints. Swimwear features as part of the collection as well as shorts and shirts ideal for those sunny days in the park or at the beach. Weather worn pastels also feature some of the Caribbean pieces and stripes and checks play a big role.
Hackett is located on 21-26 South Anne Street Dublin 2.
