British heritage brand Hawes & Curtis has created an exclusive collection to celebrate the release of acclaimed series The Crown: Season 2 on Blu-rayTM and DVD on 22nd October, 2018.
The Crown: Season 2 follows Queen Elizabeth through the late 1950s and early ’60s as she struggles to navigate a world that’s changing around her. She must face the challenges of a new era, from the Suez Canal crisis to the assassination of John F. Kennedy, while preserving both the monarchy and her marriage.
Specialising in luxury shirts, fine tailoring and accessories since 1913, Hawes & Curtis has been a favourite for royalty. In 1949, Hawes & Curtis was commissioned to make the khaki shirt and tie for HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC) uniform when she was a princess. Hawes & Curtis was also awarded four Royal Warrants from The Duke of Windsor, King George VI and The Duke of Edinburgh.
Hawes & Curtis has taken the opportunity to showcase its phenomenal heritage by curating a capsule collection inspired by The Crown: Season 2.
The womenswear collection draws inspiration from Her Majesty’s 1950s and 1960s wardrobe. It includes sumptuous satin blouses featuring lavish pussy bows. In luxurious royal blue and rich jewel tones, they salute this season’s ladylike aesthetic. The collection also features the brand’s signature women’s cotton shirts with distinctive high collars and sleek silhouettes. Elegant cufflinks complete the royal collection.
The menswear collection is a reworking of traditional designs and elements into contemporary pieces. Exquisitely tailored suits, classic tweed blazers, knitted waistcoats and traditional Jermyn Street shirts are the hero pieces. Heritage print silk ties and accessories add the finishing touches to tailoring.
Hawes & Curtis CEO Touker Suleyman said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Crown for a second season. Having served royalty including HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1949, this iconic series truly resonates with our brand. Our carefully considered collection illustrates our brand’s longstanding heritage. Royal style has never been so attainable.”
