Hot at Henley…Henry Hunt showcases cool looks for the “season”
Fashionistas and the country set will be heading for Henry Hunt at Henley’s Royal Regatta (30 June - 4 July) to get their fashion fix from an exciting new country clothing company which combines classic British tailoring with a modern twist.
Henry Hunt is the brainchild of twenty one year old fashion student Phoebe Garlick from Somerset who aims to inspire a new modern and diverse generation to embrace quintessential English country style that uses the best of British materials and craftsmanship.
Phoebe, who was inspired by designers such as Vivienne Westwood and classic British brands such as Burberry, has created a collection that uses cutting edge design and individually finished pieces with luxurious and top quality British materials. She believes that Henry Hunt can offer an exciting range of unique clothing for men and women: “Our clothes are original and exclusive, with individual detailing using the best materials that are locally sourced. Our tweed jackets and skirts are investment pieces for anyone who enjoys fashion and wants to buy a future vintage piece or design classic.”
Highlights at Henley include: ladies and gentlemen’s tweed jackets lined with pure silk in a variety of bright colours with individual detailing and buttons. (£258.00) Waistcoats with individual styling for women with cutaway backs, herringbone linings and detailing (£ 52.00), cute summer floral shorts (£42.00) and limited edition summer dresses (£68.00) as well as the must have Henry Hunt hoodies and polo shirts. For more details and prices, visit: www.henryhunt.co.uk.
Where many classic and upmarket clothing brands are manufactured abroad, Henry Hunt prides itself on working with British manufacturers and suppliers. Henry Hunt jackets use tweed from Fox Brothers and Co Ltd, in Wellington in Somerset which has been servicing the British clothing industry with the highest quality cloth for nearly 250 years. Fox Brothers supply the UK’s top fashion houses and exclusive Savile row tailors: www.floxflannel.com. Seventy percent of Henry Hunt’s clothing is made and sourced in the West Country. The Henley Royal Regatta is a highlight of the English “social season” but visitors to this prestigious social event will have to be quick if they want to grab a Henry Hunt design classic as Phoebe explains: “Our customers can be reassured that many of our pieces are individually made and exclusive so you will not find others wearing the same design as you. We have a policy of “when they are gone they are gone” and we want to continually update and refresh our designs and clothing lines.”
