On our minds: Hillier Bartley

Fashion heavyweights Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley launches a label for the old rebellion.

On our minds is Hillier Bartley, the new “mature” label from Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley which launched earlier this season. Stressing the sexiness of women in slouchy menswear, Hillier and Bartley – who have both held high positions at various fashion brands for the past 20 years – were looking to create a “grown-up, woman-friendly” label of clothes for the “old rebellion” – described as an experienced woman confident enough to do and dress as she pleases. A similar mindset is reflected in the running of the brand which according to the duo will stay independent as a way of “taking charge rather than dictate from somewhere else”. Hillier and Bartley have also expressed an interest to opt out of shows and pre-collections – and sticking with doing what they feel comfortable with, on their own terms. We love to see such heavyweights with a past at major brands taking a stance for slower paced, independent fashion. Read a recent interview here.
