Revisiting 246 years of heritage, Gieves & Hawkes celebrates the evolution of British genteel fashion with an exhibition named “The Invention of The British Gentleman” to be held at Atrium I, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, Hong Kong from 14 to 20 September 2017 between 10am and 10pm.
Gieves & Hawkes can justifiably take credit for the sartorial evolution of the British elite; after all, they have dressed ten generations of British royalty, right from King George III in 1803 to Princes William and Harry in recent times!
Starting as outfitters to Britain’s most top-ranking military officers, Gieves & Hawkes gradually expanded to become the final word in civilian clothing as well.
The exhibition showcases the brand’s rich history from the 18th century archival collections to recent ready-to-wear ranges.
The exhibition will also feature an inspiring video documenting the brand’s journey from its illustrious past to a modern-day, fashion-forward future.
