The entrepreneur and global explorer in me was always on search for the perfect practical, durable, versatile and timeless workbag, and it was starting to become an obsession. A bag that was elegant, luxurious, made with quality craftsmanship, had multiple clever pockets, clean design and large enough to carry my computer, gym gear, notes, camera, glasses and other daily necessities. It was this seemingly impossible feat that formed the foundations of Hills & West.
I journeyed to Ars Sutoria in Milan to learn from the traditional leather artisans themselves, after which I resigned from my global director role in technology to focus solely on Hills & West – creating lifestyle accessories that made our already multidimensional and frantic daily lives just that little bit easier.
Designed for function and form, with versatility for the busy entrepreneur, Hills & West’s first collection comprises of superbly crafted staples including cardholders, folios, clutches and a backpack that can be worn multiple ways, with a whole array of unique features.
The Morgan capsule collection is comprised of four distinct styles designed to specifically cater to the modern woman or man on the go:
· Morgan Business 13” folio – for him and for her – $299
· Morgan 3 in 1 Backpack – $499
· Morgan Mini Convertible Clutch – $399
· Accessories include the Morgan Cardholder – $39
For him, the Morgan Business finished with gunmetal black hardware, is the cornerstone to every man’s working wardrobe. The handsome slick leather design and multiple compartments help you effortlessly tote your tech, notes and accessories with ease.
For her, a sophisticated backpack to hold all the daily necessities, and a folio and clutch to protect technology, but also versatile to travel from the gym, to the boardroom and transform to the perfect evening accessory.
The collection uses high quality luxury leather, premium hardware, handmade locally in Sydney by artisans who hold true to heritage leather good standards, ensuring the upmost quality in each and every bag. The Morgan is to be loved, carried everyday, and designed to only improve with time.
Hills & West is proud to be establishing its online store, operated out of Sydney, Australia, where the label can grow within the local fashion community and beyond. All orders are hand delivered by a local courier service throughout Australian metro.
Coming from a city that is thriving in innovation and technology, where usability is key, combining that sense of functionality with fashion seems like such a natural step for me. Welcome to the Morgan Collection, I am sure you will find a style that will become an essential lifestyle accessory.
