Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley to launch own label

Following the announcement that Marc by Marc will merge with the Marc Jacobs main line, fashion designers Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley have announced the launch of their own luxury brand, Hillier Bartley. The brand will debut with an AW15 collection and will include women’s ready-to-wear, bags and accessories. The Hillier Bartley collection uses classic English references and has a masculine edge, which utilises Savile Row cloth, velvet, silk, merino wool and shearling across tailoring, dresses and separates. Manufactured in the UK, fabrics are sourced predominately from British mills, while the bags will be produced outside Venice, Italy. The duo, working out of a studio in east London’s Rochelle School, presented the collection to select buyers in Paris during the womenswear collections in March and will be delivering internationally to select retailers from August 2015. All press enquiries should be directed to Starworks Group.
