Even though Emma Hill's departure from Mulberry was announced mere hours ago, there are already rumours as to where she's going next. At the top of the list? WWD is speculating that Hill may journey stateside to succeed Reed Krakoff as the next creative director of Coach. Wouldn't that be brills?
And why shouldn't she? Hill has spent the past six years creating some of the most iconic bags on the accessories market — the Alexa and the new Willow tote, just to name a few — while also producing season after season of stunning ready-to-wear. Coach is looking to expand beyond simply accessories and outerwear into a full-fledged lifestyle brand — Emma Hill could be exactly what Coach is looking for. But she is not the only designer in the running. A look at who else we wouldn't mind seeing take the job, right after the jump.
