Take a walk through history this spring on Savile Row. Each tailor has produced an outfit for fictional 1920’s hotelier Jimmy Beaumont, invented by Beaumont hotel founder and CEO, Jeremy King OBE to inform guests of the interior design of the iconic 1926 hotel building.
During the war, American-born Jimmy discovered the tailors on Savile Row and developed a weakness for their quality clothing. Jimmy could regularly be seen walking around his hotel in his 3 button suit with double breasted collar with a Yale tie, however he did insist on American stripes rather than British stripes when it came to his neckwear. At the weekend, Jimmy would take in the sights of London dressed in tweed and his cashmere coat. To honour Jimmy Beaumont, each window along Savile Row will be transformed into Jimmy’s wardrobe showcasing his staples such as the famous three-piece suit in collaboration with Holland and Sherry cloth merchants at Dege & Skinner, silk robe and slippers at New & Lingwood, a tennis outfit by Dashing Tweeds, rowing blazer and smoking jacket by Anderson & Sheppard and many more along the iconic street.
As a part of the event and to celebrate London Craft Week, The Beaumont Hotel will be hosting a fashionable evening with dinner and wine. The evening will begin with some pre-drinks in the hotel’s resident-only bar, The Club Room, followed by a luxurious three-course dinner paired with wine. If you didn’t get a chance to see Jimmy Beaumont’s wardrobe collection during your strolls around Savile Row you need not worry, the capsule collection will be on display during the dinner.
The Jimmy Beaumont Capsule Collection will run from 3rd May to 7th May along Savile Row and The Jimmy Beaumont Dinner will be held at The Beaumont Hotel on 4th May
