As the former codesigners of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Hillier and Luella Bartley know a thing or two about crafting enviable suits, slinky dresses, and off-kilter accessories. Founded in 2015, the duo behind Hillier Bartley is now expanding their design repertoire with a capsule collection that features a lower-priced range of sweatshirts and tees, which highlights the sexually charged work by Bartley’s husband and photographer David Sims. “What appeals is the idea of adding an extra layer, putting these images that play with sexual identity on causal, everyday pieces—the clash of cultures. I love the idea of these provocative images being on baggy unisex sweatshirts and T-shirts. The clash feels very us and weirdly harmonious, “ Bartley said.

The collection, which is available exclusively online, is sure to cause a commotion as fashion fans will be clamoring to purchase the statement-making line. Head to hillierbartley.com to purchase pieces and click through the slideshow below to see it in full.
