Earlier this spring, fans of fashion and Formula 1® alike welcomed the news that Aston Martin would be renewing its ongoing partnership with menswear label Hackett. As part of the marque’s celebrated return to Grand Prix racing, Hackett was announced as the official Travelwear and Officewear Supplier for the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, styling everyone from drivers Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll through to the team principal and technicians.
Going back some 15 years, this collaboration between two iconic British brands has seen numerous fashion collections and accessory lines — and notably, in 2018, brand founder Jeremy Hackett designing the interiors for an exclusive Rapide S alongside Q by Aston Martin, applying Hackett’s refined aesthetic to everything from Prince of Wales check fabric seats to light blue flannel sun visors that were colour-coordinated with the exterior paintwork.
This season, the latest instalment of the collaboration has launched in the form of an Aston Martin Racing by Hackett range for autumn/winter 2021/22. Titled The Race Program, contemporary sport and leisurewear looks combine with designs inspired by the marque’s cutting-edge hypercar concepts. Shades of Jet Black and Rich Navy form the base of the colour palette, complete with graphic grey accents, metallic trims and sportive pops of Hypa Blue and Green. Crafted for easy layering, key styles include graphic tees, stretch polo shirts, slim-fit tracksuits and the Ultra Elements rain jacket. Technical detailing such as heat taping adds extra athletic flair, while colour blocking and engineered silhouettes reinforce the athletic theme.
