RAKE

“Our inspiration this season is the former racing car driver, Francois Cevert. He was the protégée of racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart, who looked on him almost as a son, and after Cevert’s untimely death in 1973, Stewart never raced again. Cevert had trained as a classical pianist, but it is particularly his racing career that we took as our influence for the collection — especially through our color scheme, which closely mirrors that of Cevert’s racing colors; red, yellow and blue — what we are calling Cevert Blue. He was racing in a time when the drivers were gentlemen, when to drive was a true skill.”
