In a nod to the brand’s exploration heritage, Creative Director John Harrison draws inspiration from exploration and botany for a collection with floral prints, bold colors and exotic accents.

No. 1 Savile Row had in fact been home to the Royal Geographic Society for more than 200 years before becoming the seat of Gieves & Hawkes. The British label had also outfitted some of the society’s most popular explorers during the 19th century. “My aim for Spring/Summer 2019 was to look at the lifestyle of an explorer and botanist, and take inspiration from botanicals and safari expeditions,” explains Harrison. Drawing on these historical aspects, the new collection features a vibrant color palette with tones of jungle greens, warm sands, bold khakis and powder blues.

The highly technical outerwear comes with water-resistant coating in relaxed fabrics that are perfect for layering as the weather unexpectedly turns. Suits boast a lightweight structure ideal for the warmth of the season. Jackets come in more variants from semi-structured to half-canvassed to lightweight perfect to pair with casual chinos for a hint of sophistication.

The collection also features the madras check, popular among explorers. Another motif, a vintage parrot print appears often on t-shits and embroidered elements. Eveningwear takes a more botanical turn with floral colored silk jacquard jackets, double-breasted evening suits and silk suits in solid colors with floral motifs across chest and sleeves.
