Marc by Marc Jacobs Ex Designers Debut Their Collection

The fashion world is about to fall off! The faces and design styles we’ve been so used to are not on the usual runways anymore. Everything has changed! But if change doesn’t scare you, moreover, if it makes you excited for new discoveries, hang on here, we have just the right news for you. One of the major changes in the industry is the debut collection of former Marc by Marc Jacobs designers Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley. We’ve all heard the news early this year; Marc by Marc Jacobs has entered the pages of fashion history and stored for ambitious fashion students of the futures. The creative directors of the brand, however, have gone forward launching their own luxury brand and making their first steps of entering the fashion Olympia!

Hillier Bartley Debut Collection

They’ve been pretty successful on that path, if you ask me. Not only the legendary name Marc Jacobs is haunting them in every single article, but their debut collection appeared only 6 months later, turning everyone’s heads, creating the WOW effect, and delicately combining the classics and a trendy flirt.

Coming back to this newly-born fashion brand, let’s get the basics straight. If you’re thinking the new brand Hillier Bartley will be the logical continuation of Marc by Marc Jacobs or will be very similar to its collections, you’re wrong! The designers have mentioned that their debut collection will be nothing like the garments we’ve seen before. We’ll be pleasantly surprised and refreshed by the new approach of well-known designers. One of the peculiarities of the Hillier Bartley collection is the target it’s aiming at older women, bypassing the energetic youth, which was often in the center of Marc Jacob’s attention.

Women who have long enjoyed the careless 20s will find the new Hillier Bartley collection amazing… and that’s natural because they’re the heroines of this movie. The garments were created for women in their forties, who don’t mind dressing up for cocktail parties and gatherings. The evening dresses represented in the collection are just what you need. According to the designers, it’s never too late to feel a child at heart, even when you’re over 40. And that’s the reason they’ve introduced some youthful features into this mature collection. These inspiring descriptions were attributed to the elegant silk dress inspired by the ‘30s.

The age target of the Hillier Bartley fashion line also gives away some of the details and the overall attitude of the designers. It’s very clear that the classic traditions have been kept in mind while designing the collection (cause that’s what you start liking when you get old). The more you grow up, the more you start appreciating the classics (perhaps, because you also start becoming classic yourself). So if you’re already noticing some inclination towards the classics now in your 20s, just know it’s going deeper in future.

Hillier Bartley Debut Collection

Give yourself 20 more years and you’ll fall in love with sand-colored coats (made from camel wool, exotic right!?), the velvet jacket or the rabbit-shaped clutch (now this one… I really doubt this one is age limited). Finally, don’t let the age limit keep you from purchasing anything from this collection, just how the drinking age limit never kept you from having a good time! See, after all, some things never change!
