"I always work with classics, adapting them to feel modern but without designing 'looks' so that my pieces can be kept throughout the years and worn it totally different ways. "
Sophie Hulme graduated from Kingston University with Student of the Year and Best Collection awards. After much interest in her graduate collection she set up her own label two months later. Having grown up in North London she now works from a studio in Islington.
She designs with the intention that each piece of the collection is unique and timeless. Every item is a key piece with a real emphasis on quality. The collections focus on a selection of luxury outerwear, dresses, bags and accessories.
Each season has a chosen trinket that comes with every garment. Such as the A/W 12 dinosaur and the S/S 13 ice cream spoon. Dedicated buyers can collect these along with various chains and attachments to create individual oversize charm necklaces.
The unique approach and style of the brand quickly gained interest. The Telegraph has named her as one of London’s brightest talents. She has featured in a huge amount of press both in the UK and internationally, including Elle, ID, Sport and Street, Parsnips, Dazed and Confused, Collezioni Donna and Time Out.
The mainline collection is stocked in numerous stores worldwide including Selfridges (London), Colette (Paris), Opening Ceremony (Japan), Edition (Japan) and Joyce (Hong Kong) to name a few.
Sophie Hulme made her debut onto the London Fashion Week Schedule with her A/W 2012 collection.
