From day one, a question consistently asked of brothers Emil and Sandy Corsillo has been “when is The Hill-Side going to make clothes?” Something they’ve long considered, it’s with their most recent project, “The Hill-Side & Co.“, that those questions are answered.
In a unique position, running both The Hill-Side as well as one of the best and most uniquely stocked shops on the east coast, Sandy and Emil began months ago reaching out to a couple dozen brands they carry at Hickoree’s to produce signature pieces from their recent collections using fabric from The Hill-Side’s current and past seasons.
The result is a collection of around fifty pieces including an indigo chambray anorak with Owner/Operator, leaf-camo chinos with Left Field, a quilted patchwork tote bag with Stanley & Sons made from production scraps, Guatemalan hand-woven fabric work shirts with Dana Lee, a hemp denim backpack with Topo, a multi-fabric “fun” shirt using all five of The Hill-Side’s standard chambrays with Gitman Vintage, and floral print boxer shorts with Choctaw Ridge, zipper pouches in a multitude of fabrics by Drifter and floral short sleeve BD’s with 8.15 August Fifteenth just to name a few.
The collection will be exclusively available both online and at Hickoree’s Floor Two in Brooklyn on May 31st with a collection of short stop motion animation films to accompany many of the pieces launching online in the coming days(stay tuned here for some sneak previews.)
With it’s unveiling tonight, it’s the culmination of months and months of work and something Emil, Sandy and Co. are extremely excited to present. Emil says, “I’m really excited about the way we’ve decided to do it. It’s going to be different than anything we’ve seen from other shops.”
