Cyndy and Jan have fallen in love.
They have fallen in love with a new handbag collection.
They realise they are shallow and superficial to be so enamoured of a handbag collection, but, hey, what can you do? The handbag collection in question is from a brand that is new to them – Hill and Friends. And is also a new to John Lewis.
Though a new brand to Jan and Cyndy, and new at John Lewis, Hill and Friends has a pedigree: Hill and Friends is a collaboration between former colleagues Emma Hill and Georgia Fendley, Emma Hill CBE, is the fashion designer who worked for Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Gap but is probably best known in the UK for her leading design role at Mulberry.
Hill and Friends produces bags that are luxurious but functional, “each affirmed with a subversive wink”. The bags are truly luxe, but also have a witty twist; they are fun to carry as well as beautiful….
Made from the highest quality materials and crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Hill and Friends bags combine functionality with sophistication. Talking about their bags, Hill and Friends say: “Luxury demands extraordinary attention to detail; our products are designed and manufactured without compromise.”
Jan and Cyndy also love their philosophy about ageing (ageing products, that is). Hill and Friends believe luxury should be long-lasting, and state:“Our products are made of natural materials and will develop a love-worn patina over time. Like the best things in life, they will get better with age.” See what we mean!
Several bags in the current A/W collection are in leopard print, an absolute favourite of Cyndy’s. Jan is drooling over the Happy Satchel in “toffee”, an absolutely perfect neutral.
From the Hill and Friends collection at John Lewis, these are the bags at Top of Cyndy and Jan’s A/W lust list for daytimes and work:
