The Hill-Side has come a long way from their humble beginnings in pocket squares, ties, scarves, and other simple Japanese and American-milled textile accessories. Today the collection consists of those things still but adds shirts, sneakers, jackets, and even denim. For Summer 15 they’ve shot their entire lookbook within a few blocks of their South Williamsburg home base, which also happens to be where their brick and mortar shop Hickoree’s is located. Check out the lookbook in full here and keep an eye on THS- FW15 has some really good stuff coming.
