Top tailor Gieves & Hawkes has teamed up with British director Mike Figgis (opens in new tab) to showcase its A/W 2013 collection in an intriguing short film, entitled ‘A Link Through Time’. Set in Yorkshire’s historical Harewood House – home to the Lascelles family for more than five centuries – we’re introduced to the film’s mysterious model protagonist as he pulls up to the grounds in a 1950s Jaguar XK150. The flawless Chippendale interiors of the Robert Adam-designed manor form the backdrop to elegant looks plucked from the Savile Row tailor (opens in new tab)’s Fall collection, featuring hand-cut contemporary tweed suits, luxurious Shetland overcoats and the house’s signature midnight blue evening wear. The film is accompanied by an original score by Rosey Chan.
