Of all the objects that one can collect, jewellery is perhaps the most personal, intimate and precious. From the coronation-worthy 19th-century tiara in the Devonshire Parure to a witty, wearable gold brooch by a contemporary designer, jewels have a special legacy at Chatsworth.
Among the Duchesses of Devonshire, there have been several tastemakers whose flair for style is evident in the carefully preserved garments that can be found in the closets of Chatsworth. Among the most elaborate of these is the Queen Zenobia gown, commissioned by Duchess Louise in 1897 for a summertime ball. Fashion continues to play a role at Chatsworth today, as the Countess of Burlington explains in this episode.
What to wear to spend an evening with Huntsman? That was the question that Simon Crompton, the men’s style journalist behind the Permanent Style blog, posed to his readers back in December, when he asked them to submit pictures of their ideal evening wear ensemble. The prize for the ten outfits he judged the most “stylish, interesting, and original,” was an invitation to attend a dinner hosted at Huntsman’s Savile Row headquarters and catered by Casa Cruz

“Commissioning a bespoke suit is an act of faith,” says Huntsman chairman Pierre Lagrange.

It may be difficult to imagine packing up an enormous silver chandelier for a weekend visit to your country house, but for the 6th Duke of Devonshire, toting the elaborate fixture from one residence to another was simply a necessity. This episode explores the “pure bravado” of many silver objects in the Devonshire Collection as well as a few more understated recent commissions.
Huntsman is proud to announce that we enjoyed another historic moment in the house’s history. We now have a permanent, larger home in New York, a 2,030 square foot pied-à-terre dedicated entirely to fulfilling the needs of our American clients. Housed in the same building as the previous appointment-only space at 130 W. 57th Street, this new apartment is three times bigger, which has allowed Huntsman to treat it as a proper ‘club’ for customers to enjoy, similar in scope to Savile Row. A refined escape from the chaos of the city that lies at its feet, the pied-à-terre offers clients old and new a haven from the relentless pace of the world outside. It’s a comfortable stopping point to relax in luxurious surroundings, catch-up with the Huntsman team, to place new orders or browse through cloth books in search of style advice, whisky in hand.
