A week of partying for Alex Turner and Miles Kane culminated in arriving in style at Spencer Hart’s launch of its new flagship Brook Street Store in a vintage Mercedes-Benz. As the UK’s premier source of student fashion news, we thought we should bring you the low down on this exclusive new store.
Alex Turner, who recently split from Alexa Chung, was on a lad’s night out with fellow The Last Shadow Puppets band mate, Miles Kane, to check out the fashion tailoring house’s new store. Other guests included The Kooks, David Grey, Brett Anderson and Massive Attack.
Spencer Hart, which was named after Nick Hart’s son, is known for dressing other celebrities including David Bowie, Kanye West and Jay Z.
The space, a former bank on Mayfair’s Brook Street reflects Nick Hart’s vision and iconic references of a modern utopia influenced by the likes of Neutra, Sinatra, Warhol and Kerouac, into a fresh and modern retail world for men.
The store set across 2-floors will demonstrate Nick Hart’s underlying vision with the iconic influences reflected within product ranges, store interior and atmosphere.
The different worlds of Spencer Hart are apparent with distinct environments used to showcase the new collections.
The new ‘Palm Springs’ collection will include denims, chinos underwear, luggage, shoes and fragrance. These new categories are positioned alongside the traditional Spencer Hart tailoring offering which the brand has built its success upon since its Savile Row inception in 2002.
The store will also house the brand’s foray in to a number of new product lines such as books, films, music and art. Special brand partners include Floris, Edward Green shoes, leather goods by Swaine Adeney Brigg, Oliver Goldsmith eyewear and a selection of carefully selected vintage cufflinks and timepieces.
The Young Academic student fashion section will be jam packed with trend advice and offers by the time the new academic year commences so make sure you don’t miss a single update. Head over to the Facebook and Twitter pages right now!
