After saying a sad but fashionable farewell to Marc by Marc Jacobs earlier this month our style spirits were lifted after getting word that the talented twosome behind the brands success, are set to launch their own luxury label. Yay!
Fashion duo, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier announced their plans to to launch their own ready-to-wear and accessories brand, Hillier Bartley – fancy!
We’re chomping at the fashion bit to see what the design duo come up with and luckily we don’t have long to wait. The collaborators presented their debut collection to buyers earlier this month meaning we can get our mitts on their autumn offerings come August!
What to expect from the new luxe label? Said to be inspired by classic English references, the collection uses “velvet, silk, merino wool and shealing across tailoring, dresses and separates.”
The fashion friends seem elated at their latest collab with Katie commenting, “Luella and I have always worked together in different ways, now we are finally putting all our experience into making something that’s a reflection of us, of what we want to wear.”
We are pleased to hear this lovely pairing are staying together to create more amazing designs! Watch this space!
