Sophie Hulme launched her eponymous accessories brand in 2011. The brand’s ethos pivots around a functional approach to aesthetic design - creating stylish, covetable bags which are designed to work, as well as adorn an arm. The brand creates four collections each year - released in line with the fashion calendar - S/S, Pre A/W, A/W and Resort - but intended to carry all year round. The designs are long-lasting additions to a timeless bag collection, the antidote to fleeting trends.
The Sophie Hulme studio is housed in a former toy factory in Islington, London. Every style is designed at the studio and responsibly made by specialist accessories producers in Italy, Hungary and Spain. Sophie Hulme is committed to working with the very best materials - sourcing premium calf leather from Italy and using 24 carat gold-plated hardware.
The collections are available via the online store, sophiehulme.com, and at 230 locations across 23 countries - including Selfridges, NET-A-PORTER, Liberty, Harrods and Harvey Nichols in the UK, and Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Opening Ceremony, Le Bon Marche and On Pedder internationally.
Ergonomic design, polished details and impeccable quality underpin the brand philosophy.
Sophie Hulme graduated from Kingston University’s Fashion BA in 2007, winning both collection and student of the Year. She was a recipient of the BFC/ELLE Talent Launchpad, along with a British Fashion Award for Emerging Talent in accessories in 2012.
