Sandy and Emil Corsillo, creators and proprietors of both The Hill-Side and Hickorees, live and work in Brooklyn. It’s where The Hill-Side has grown over the past few years into a truly global brand. So it’s only fitting that, breaking from the largely Brooklyn-based books of the past few seasons, their latest lookbook, for their stellar Autumn ’12 collection, is made up of images from all over the globe. From Madison to Munich, Chicago to Cape Town, Austin to Amsterdam, Toronto to Tokyo, San Francisco to Silverlake, Sydney to Seoul.

According to Emil and Sandy, “On our travels we find people wearing The Hill-Side in new ways, and their personality and originality inspires us. This time around we wanted to showcase those people and the way they wear our products in their own environments. We sent out two dozen packages to these shops, each containing a pile of samples from our AW12 collection and a disposable camera. We invited them to take pictures of co-workers, favorite customers, neighbors, best friends, children, pets, the pizza delivery guy . . . anyone they thought represented their neighborhood.
27 exposures later, they sent their disposable cameras back and we got to work editing.”
As always, a great lookbook for a great Fall collection.
