If you love luxurious fabrics, impeccable craftsmanship and clean, almost architectural lines – and you aren’t wearing Hilton Hollis – Then you will be soon.
Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to see both Hollis’ Fall 2015 collection, as well as, get a sneak peek at what he’s doing for Spring 2016. I took one look at the truly luxurious fabrics, which he imports mostly from Italy and Spain and the genius way that he cuts and constructs, and I was immediately obsessed! Sadly, photographs don’t do Hollis’ designs justice. They are something that you have to see and feel in person. The meaty weight of his fabrics coupled with a construction based on a seemingly architectural design aesthetic, work to ensure that the lines of each piece hold their integrity and remain crisp and clean against the body.The overall look is sophisticated and rich. Hilton Hollis should be a go to label for the girl who likes to look polished and fresh in all that she does. His work is simply gorgeous! But, This should be no surprise. When it comes to design, there is no better pedigree than that of a tried and true New Yorker with the twinkle of a deep south upbringing in his eye. It’s also worth mentioning, that as an American designer, Hilton Hollis includes sizes in his collection that many of the European designers disregard. If you aren’t familiar with the Hilton Hollis label, it’s definitely worth a google search to find out who carries his line in your area.
