More than 30 world class cars will shut down Savile Row in June as tailoring houses in the famous street join with the automotive community to create the first ever Savile Row Concours.

The street will be shut on June 15th and 16th and entry will be free to visitors with events taking place throughout the day

The event will explore the relationship between craftsmanship and the art of bespoke which inextricably links the realms of tailoring and automobiles.

It will showcase more than 30 world-class cars displayed along the street, from pre-war thoroughbreds to the latest electric hypercars, including Pininfarina’s Testarossa Spider, renowned Italian industrialist and playboy Gianni Agnelli’s last Ferrari, the Kingsman movie Jaguar E-type and the new Maserati MC20 to name but a few.

Many of the renowned tailors, shoemakers and art galleries will be open late to visitors. The street will feature a central stage, which will host several talks with key figures from the worlds of tailoring and automotive design. Live music will accompany the event across the two days.

Partnerships include Dege & Skinner and Morgan Motor Company, J.P. Hackett and Aston Martin, Holland & Sherry and Bizzarrini, and Huntsman and Bentley among others. Each of these partnerships will provide a unique opportunity to dive into the minds of these great brands producing exclusive garments, installations and more.

Julian Stocks, Property Director of the Pollen Estate, said: “We are delighted to unveil Concours on Savile Row, giving an insight into the long-standing relationship between Savile Row tailors and luxury car manufacturers. The event will be a wonderful showcase of craftsmanship that is unique to both industries.”

Geoff Love, the Managing Director and Co-founder of Hothouse Media said: “The coming together of these two worlds recognised industries is an exclusive opportunity for all who are able to visit. The event will act as not only a celebration of stunning cars and garments but also the craftsmanship and skill of bespoke manufacturing and tailoring.”
