To commemorate Huntsman’s recent opening of there New York City location and first boutique outside of London. The Huntsman team are bringing Savile Row across the U.S. in a 1980’s Airstream camper, that has been retrofitted to match their Savile Row boutique. The tour has kicked off at Spanish Bay Resort in famed Pebble Beach during Monterey’s annual Car Week, and has plans to visit several major cities across the United States; including Napa, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, and Boston.
“I have long had a hankering for the timeless American trailers. I was fascinated by their design. So, after purchasing historic Savile row tailor, Huntsman, I was quick to find the perfect excuse to combine Huntsman’s bespoke tweeds with the silver-aluminium caravans.”
– Pierre Lagrange, Huntsman Owner & Chairman
The Airstream’s design brings American Retro and quintessential British class together in perfect harmony, to showcase Huntsman’s brilliant collection of bespoke fabrics, with a particular focus on tweed. The camper is finished in a shinning chrome exterior, featuring a vinyl strip in tweed pattern reminiscent of the camper’s interior, a red awning which toutes Huntsman followed by their founding year of 1849 in white letters, as well as Huntsman written directly above the vehicles front grill. When entering the Airstream’s interior you are transported into a newfound world of the elegant London tailor’s home with tweed lined walls, warm wood finishings, hunting trophies, and copper accents.
The Airstream’s bedroom has been made into a luxurious appointment only, fully equipped mobile fitting room, even including a triptych mirror. In this room, a Huntsman cutter will fit clients by taking measurements and working with them to achieve their perfect bespoke suit, to fit the client’s particular taste. Paying respect to Huntsman’s English heritage and Monterey Car Week, the Airstream even includes a Leather driving jacket made for Bentley.
After leaving Pebble Beach, California the Huntsman Airstream will be traveling across the United States for one year. Next stop? Believe it or not, “The Burning Man festival” in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Though if you are unable to visit the Airstream during its tour; Huntsman invites you to stop by their all new 2,000 sqft pied-a-terre boutique on 57th Street in New York City, where dedicated Cutter, Ralph Fitzgerald, can introduce you to Huntsman’s expert Savile Row Bespoke Cutting services.
