Hackett London’s long-standing relationship with Aston Martin, one of Britain’s most renowned automobile companies, reaches new heights in 2018. Hackett and Aston Martin have collaborated to create a Hackett edition of the Aston Martin Q Rapide S car.
Created with a unique vision, the Q Rapide S by Hackett combines sensational sports car performance with the essence of Hackett’s key brand values in one compelling form. The specification has been designed exclusively by Hackett Chairman, Jeremy Hackett in collaboration with Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, Marek Reichman and includes the brand’s unique character in a blend of sumptuous luxury, serene refinement and elegant convenience. The car’s Mako Blue exterior, Union Jack Aston Martin wings and 3D minted polo player side badges embody Hackett’s identifying values.
Hackett’s key details continue through to the interior, reflecting the brands tailoring expertise, the seats and car accessories are covered with a Prince of Wales check supplied by renowned cloth mill Fox Brothers and Co. Inside the glove box, door pockets, cup holders and sun visor is a blue and white striped material, similar to that of a traditional suit lining. With no attention to detail spared, Hackett’s blue colourway is highlighted through the carpets and the head rests, with the Hackett logo embossed on the rear, are covered in black molten cloth, the traditional bowler hat fabric.
With every car purchase, Hackett are creating a bespoke suit that mirrors the car interiors; a Prince of Wales check cloth from Fox Brothers and Co. with a blue and white stripe lining. An exclusive luxury accessories range will also launch in line with the car, key pieces include, a large holdall, small 24 hour holdall both made from Fox Brothers Prince of Wales check cloth with blacker leather piping and handles, adorned with the Aston Martin by Hackett signature label. Also available is a travel umbrella, cufflinks, car blankets and made to measure driving gloves.
Launching exclusively in September 2018 the Q Rapide S by Hackett is one of the highest specs ever built by Aston Martin.
