"Wait what?" - You might ask? Well I kinda asked myself the same question when Hackett London came knocking at my door and asked if I was willing to participate in a unique experience in Portugal, in order to witness the launch of their new "Journey Collection". Along with a select group of Bloggers & Journalists we recreated the Skydive of their official campaign , but see for yourself:

As you can see it was quite the thrilling experience. Even more so because it was actually my birthday, which totally added to that once in a lifetime feeling. Naturally I was all the happier to be able to share this unique birthday experience with my boys Patrick and Johnny (New Kiss on the Blog). Cheers to them for making this birthday as funny as it was, with that hilarious, getting on my nerves all the time, kind of attitude of them - love you guys!

But let´s take it back a little and talk about why a brand such as hackett london, which stands for sophisticated suit game chose to include skydiving into their latest campaign. As I have mentioned above this was all due to the fact that they were introducing their Journey Suit, which is basically designed for the man on the move (I own one and It really is convenient). Hackett being a brand that´s as sophisticated as it gets, all while maintaining that brit sense of effortless elegance, always thrives for outstanding campaigns. See the official campaign video for their Journey Collection here.

I have always wanted to try skydiving and it really did not disappoint. That feeling you get when the plane slowly climbs into the air and you know that it´s just a matter of seconds now is as thrilling as it gets. Once you jump and the free fall hits you, it all just goes away - it´s an unbelievable experience, which in my opinion, changes the way you view life.

In case you ever intend on free falling into the office and need the proper, weather resistant suit for it, be sure to check out Hackett´s entire Journey Collection here.
