Here at StyleDemocracy, we love supporting great brands and introducing you guys to brands we think you’ll love! We’d like to introduce you to one brand we’re obsessing over at the office. Here are the 9 things you should know about Hip and Bone:
1. Hip and Bone is a Canadian menswear brand
The founders and designers are based in Montreal, Quebec and about 70% of production takes place there.
2. In 2013, Hip and Bone was a finalist in the Mercedes Benz Start-Up competition.
The competition takes place every season at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto and recognizes the top emerging designers in Canada. Only eight finalists are chosen each season.
3. Hip and Bone only uses the highest quality of materials for their clothing
The hand picked fabrics include linen, pima cotton, Egyptian cotton and leather.
4. A majority of the leather used in Hip and Bone’s collections is sourced from Columbia
One of Hip and Bone’s founders & designers, Carlos Fogelman, sources the crocodile leather from his family’s crocodile farm in Columbia.
5. ‘Hip and Bone’ isn’t just a name, it’s a lifestyle
“Being hip isn’t about the type of clothing you wear, it’s about the person wearing the clothes. Being hip really comes down to the bones.” – Carlos Fogelman
6. Celebrities aren’t shy of the brand
7. Hip and Bone once designed a custom crocodile skin duffle bag for Kanye West.
The bag is made of white crocodile leather and has baby blue lining.
8. While Hip and Bone mainly focuses on menswear, their brand looks great on women too!
