Story | Hillier Bartley
Hillier Bartley was launched in Autumn Winter 2015 by long-term
collaboration Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley.
The duo first worked together in 1999 on Bartley's eponymous
label 'Luella', while Hillier went on to consult for various brands
including Marc by Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney,
and Loewe. In 2013 the pair were reunited as Creative Directors of
Marc by Marc Jacobs, which ultimately sowed the seeds for the
launch of their own brand, Hillier Bartley.
Hillier Bartley was born out of a personal question of how
they, and consequently other women, should dress as they age. This
prompted the realization that as 40-year-olds, they wanted to feel
more womanly and more elegant, The brand combines masculine
elegance with rakish femininity, and plays with the notion of
mixing the English aristocracy with street style influences.
The brand focuses on timeless Ready-to-Wear and Accessories to
create a collection which h is unique, pure and personal, combined
with an uncompromising commitment to craftsmanship, fabric, and
attention to detail.
Katie and Luella have worked together in different ways. They
put all experience into making something that's a reflection of us,
of what they want to wear. Hillier Bartley is a culmination of
everything they have learnt as a designer and women and is purely
and defiantly about the clothes and fabrics.
The duo looked at the woman they admire, what they want to
wear and the inspirations that have been close to us for ages. It's
about a woman their age, indie by heart, rakish and irreverent by
nature, who is maturing into refinement and naturalness.
