NEWS STORY
19/01/2015

Williams has announced a multi-year agreement with Hackett, the British clothing and accessories company, that will see Hackett become the official clothing supplier of the team for the 2015 season onwards.

Founded in London in 1979, Hackett enjoys a worldwide reputation for luxury menswear, personal tailoring and accessories. As part of the agreement it will supply the apparel worn by Williams personnel at each race during the season, as well as the apparel and luggage used by team members during their travels.

As part of the agreement Hackett will become an official partner of the team, with its logo appearing on the nose of the Williams Mercedes FW37, the shirts worn by team personnel, and the race suits and caps worn by drivers Felipe Massa, Valtteri Bottas and Susie Wolff.

"Motorsport has been a part of the Hackett DNA for many years now and the prospect of working with one of the giants of F1 sends shivers up and down my spine," said Jeremy Hackett. "The Martini racing stripe has always been heralded as a marque of prestige and luxury and it seemed only natural for Hackett to style the team for the new season. I also noticed that Hackett was founded the same time Williams won its first World Championship... an omen, if ever there was one!"

"Hackett has grown to become one of the world's leading menswear brands and like Williams has a reputation for being quintessentially British but with an international presence," added Claire Williams. "We are delighted to be partnering with a brand of their stature. The race team put their clothing and luggage through a lot of stress as they travel around the globe each season and work in challenging conditions. We always seek a supplier that has an excellent reputation for quality and style and Hackett certainly meets this criteria."
