Tailor Patrick Grant has designed a menswear line for department store Debenhams, following in the footsteps of designers such as Jasper Conran and John Rocha.
The tailor joined the Designers for Debenhams initiative which has went from strength to strength and created a collection for the “classic yet contemporary” man. The collection will be sold under the label Hammond & Co by Patrick Grant, branching off from the original Hammond & Co which was founded in 1776.
Grant told Vogue: “The Savile Row bespoke suit is the epitome of men’s tailoring. With Hammond & Co we have worked hard to ensure the synonymous cut, subtle flair and the perfect proportion is present through every piece. Hammond & Co is a house with a great history of excellence in sporting tailoring and we have done our best to remain true to this heritage.”
The collection is 70 pieces ranging from clothing to accessories including formalwear and daywear. It’s expected to launch for autumn/winter 2013-14 and will be avaliable to buy from 50 stores and debenhams.com with prices ranging for £14 to £299.
