More than 30 world-class cars will close out Savile Row in June when the tailoring houses on the famous street join with the automotive community to create the first-ever Savile Row Concours.

The street will be closed on June 15 and 16 and admission will be free for visitors with events throughout the day.

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

It will showcase more than 30 world-class cars 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 latest Ferrari, the Jaguar E-type from the movie Kingsman and the new Maserati MC20, to name just a few.

Many of the renowned tailors, shoemakers and art galleries will be open late for visitors. The street will feature a central stage, which will host various talks with key figures from the world of tailoring and automotive design. Live music will accompany the event during both days.

Partnerships include Dege & Skinner and Morgan Motor Company, JP 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 that produce exclusive apparel, installations and more.

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

Geoff Love, managing director and co-founder of Hothouse Media, said: “Bringing these two world-renowned industries together is a unique opportunity for all who can visit. The event will act as a celebration not only of stunning automobiles and apparel, but also of the craftsmanship and skill of bespoke manufacturing and tailoring.”
