Cotswold entrepreneur launches luxury lifestyle brand Hyde & Hare
Cotswold based entrepreneur Piers Dickinson has launched his luxury lifestyle brand Hyde and Hare. The British born brand offers the finest quality, ethically sourced hides to produce one-of-a-kind bags and accessories that are both timeless and elegant.
Piers grew up in the rolling hills of Gloucestershire, went to school in Cheltenham and studied in Oxford. Having always wanted to set up his own business, it was after a trip to Kenya that he felt inspired to launch the company. He said: “I discovered a range of stunning, local cowhide products sold in a local boutique. Then, one evening overlooking the Savanna, I sat chatting to a guest who just happened to be an incredibly inspiring fashion designer. The idea of Hyde and Hare was then born.”
The Debut Collection comprises The Foxley Handbag, The Arundell Clutch, The Buckleigh Oversized Clutch and The Arlingham Overnight Bag. Each piece is handmade in England from the finest hand selected cowhide. Beautiful finishing touches are present throughout the collection including a handmade suede tassel and the signature Hyde and Hare silver lozenge.
The beautiful Cotswold born collection ensures there’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a classy, contemporary clutch to take you from morning coffee to dinner or whether you would like something stylish for that romantic weekend away.
The Foxley is the sophisticated go-to shoulder bag which will elegantly carry all your essentials from your laptop to an extra pair of flats. The Buckleigh is a gorgeous oversized clutch that will take you from coffee to cocktails. It’s slightly smaller sister is The Arundell, a cool clutch that will add a touch of rock-chic and understated sophistication to any outfit. Finally, The Arlingham, is the statement piece. The sumptuous, sleek and spacious weekend travel bag that will see you through many season’s adventures – whether you’re off to Paris, The Hamptons or a spa weekend with the girls. The Foxley and The Arlingham both feature super soft Italian leather handles and a high quality zip and pulley with the signature silver Hyde and Hare lozenge.
As the Hyde and Hare brand continues to grow the team will be going on tour, selling their beautiful, handcrafted products at shows and events throughout England and expanding sales in the U.S. What makes them so special? Not just their impeccably stylish, beautifully designed products, but the fact that each bag is completely unique and designed in the beautiful Cotswolds.
