The Hill-Side's 8th seasonal collection has just arrived, featuring the brand's signature ties, scarves, pocket squares, bandanas, bow ties, and brand new “small scarves" in a beautiful batch of fabrics woven in the US, Japan, Guatemala, and South Africa.
Highlights from the new collection include an awesome indigo discharge floral print fabric; an indigo polka dot fabric with alternating half- and full-discharge printed dots; an extremely soft, lightweight linen with an abstract floral print; a breathable, double-indigo “Panama cloth”; pop-art-inspired geometric floral prints; hand-woven striped Guatemalan fabrics; and a lighter, more loosely woven version of The Hill-Side’s custom "Old Virginia" fabric made by a small mom-and-pop operation in rural Virginia.
This season The Hill-Side also welcomes a new addition to the standard selvedge chambray fabrics that carry over each season: "Asagi-iro" Turquoise, a traditional Japanese color that was representative in the mid 1800s of a special group of samurai known as the Shinsengumi. Their “asagi-iro”-colored “haori” jackets were unique and useful for identification and visibility, standing in contrast to the traditional black, grey, and brown samurai uniforms.
