GIEVES & HAWKES

“This is the season of the modern gentleman explorer, the adventurer — he could be anywhere, from Africa to the French Riviera by way of the Grand European Tour of the 18th century. Our premises were once part of the Royal Geographical Society, and to draw upon this heritage is a remarkable privilege. What we have created is very elegant — a pared-down collection of cool colors — off-whites, creams and pastels. It is about how to live and dress in tailoring that is modern.”

— Jason Basmajian, creative director
