Knit on knit on knit. Jeremy Hackett put the shirt on hold this season, and opted for a panoply of knitwear — layered under tailored clothing — instead. In some cases, he laid the knits on thick — as in a purple turtleneck under a blue V-neck — worn with suits that came in a variety of checks and plaids. Models wore woolly fisherman’s caps with their checked overcoats, while one tossed a cream sweater over a matching jacket.
The color palette ranged from raspberry to bright blue to olive, and models carried every variety of leather or cloth-covered accessory. It’s a new category for the brand, and one which has its own space upstairs in the new Hackett flagship on Regent Street.
