Limited Edition

We’re releasing two designs this Monday, the Lila and Linda Jackets!  These open-front wool pieces feature raw front hems and are bound to be your newest favorite winter wear.

We dressed the thick, textured Lila Jacket up for a night out with our super-comfy Julia Dress and a pair of Qupid pumps.  To keep the plaid Linda Jacket casual, we paired it with our Cascade Top, jeans, Steve Madden boots, and the Young Frankk x HDH Truss Cuff.

Both jackets are one size fits most and available now on our website!

We paired the Ella Coat in Navy with a Jenessa Leone wool cap from Wilson & Willy’s, the HDH Basics tank, jeans and Gap boots.  We love the Ella Coat in Ivory with our Gene Dress. The sweatshirt Astor tunic and woven Rosemary top are worn causally with jeans and a simple piece of jewelry.

To wrap up the year, HDH has collaborated with the woman behind Spring, Finn & Co. for our final 2014 Makers Alongside edition. Meet Talin Spring, a French expat, mother of two, and a wonderfully talented leather-craftswoman.

Talin was born in Istanbul to a European family and grew up in France. Her family was skilled in various mediums such as sewing and shoe making. Surrounded by a home of hand-made creations, Talin gained an appreciation for the great value of the hand. 

Following her graduate studies at Columbia University in NY, Talin returned to Paris with her husband. After a twelve-year banking career and two children, she began to play with the idea of reorienting her career toward an artistic area. In preparation for this path, she took night classes in various studio and art history courses at ´Ecole Duperré. Then in 2002 after moving to Marseille and ending her banking career, she began her craft. Before beginning her own company, she spent time freelancing for French clothing companies as a designer where she was further enthused by the artisans and design and craft process.

Finally in 2011, Talin established Spring, Finn & Co. in Minneapolis where she now resides. Her leather works of bags and accessories, like HDH, are of chic minimal yet utilitarian designs in limited edition or one-of-a-kind. Her works are of only top grade American leather and canvas and hand stitching. Additionally, the highest level of quality is applied to every phase of each piece, assuring a beautiful result that lasts a lifetime. We are proud to close out the year with Spring, Finn & Co.!

Limited Edition

Today’s releases, the Irving, Gene, and Jule Dresses, arrive just in time for the holidays.  All three dresses are the same cut; an easy fit that can be dressed up with a statement necklace and heels or down with leggings and boots.  The detailed neckline and seam at the sleeve add a hint of elegance to an otherwise perfectly comfortable dress.  

We styled the Gene Dress with our Paris Blazer in Taupe and a white hat to stay warm in these cold months.  We threw our Basics Kimono in Cream over the Irving Dress for a sophisticated yet comfortable look.  Finally, we paired the gray Jule Dress with the Aleta Necklace, the Lalibella Loafer from Sseko Designs, and our Claire Sleeveless Jacket.

Meet the folks behind Leather Works Minnesota and our most recent Makers Alongside collaboration:  Kent, Lee & Nathan.

LWM consists of husband and wife team, Kent and Lee, along with their son Nathan and a few other team members. Kent and Lee began the company from a basement in 1999 but have now grown to craft their quality leather goods from the famous art district of Lowertown, St. Paul.

image

image

Not only is the company helping rejuvenate the Lowertown neighborhood through a massive development project, but they are supporting the American Made movement. Like HDH, bringing back American made through quality products and materials is at the forefront of the LWM’s motivation. In fact, the majority of their leather is supplied by Red Wing’s S.B. Foot Tanning Company which is located less than one hours drive south of St. Paul.

Each LWM product is made by hand and thoroughly inspected at each phase to ensure that the final product is of the finest standards. This excellence in quality and care is made to be affordable for the average customer, something that the company takes great pride in. It’s no wonder why LWM’s customer base is incredibly loyal and rapidly growing!

Events

This weekend, eight of our new designs are heading to Cliche, a Minneapolis boutique focused on filling an eclectic wardrobe with on-trend, classic pieces.  We’ve created two tops, two jackets, two dresses, and two tunics, all available starting Sunday at Cliche!  To celebrate, join us for mimosas, Patisserie 46 pastries, and a winter collection trunk show at Cliche this Sunday, November 16th from 11am-1pm!  

The Kotero and Sheila Tops are a perfect match for a warm skirt or your favorite pair of slacks.  We paired both with our Fisk Pant.

The Mavis and Tevin Tops are perfect tunics for your seasonal collection, both draping easily to flatter any frame.  The Mavis Top is seen here paired with our Ryan Pant.

The Ivana and Hayle Dresses’ hemlines hit just above the knee with half-length sleeves for the cooler fall weather.  The great seam down the front elongates and makes it unnecessary to wear jewelry, so we styled the charcoal gray Hayle with our favorite pair of Red Wings.

Finally, two jackets are headed to Cliche: the Bria and Nona.  We love the black knit Bria with our Straid Tank and high-waisted trousers!

Check out Cliche’s website to learn more about the boutique and to find these fall designs.
