Hammitt was honored in New York City on Thursday as the recipient of a Design Excellence Award for our Dillon bag.
Bestowed by the prestigious Accessories Council, the Design Excellence Awards honor creativity, innovation and quality in various categories across fashion.
Our Dillon bag was voted the top handbag under $1,000 in the Accessories Council’s public poll. Among Dillon’s award-winning features are six-way reversibility, an easily accessible cell phone pocket and a removable, adjustable strap.
“We love that the Accessories Council fosters creativity and innovation among brands of all sizes and styles. The fact that voters selected our Dillon bag in such a wonderful field is a testament to the innovation our design team brings to the table,” said Tony Drockton, founder and Chairman.
Tony accepted the honor in New York City alongside Hammitt designer Jeanne Allen, who notes that Dillon is one of her most frequently worn self-designed styles.
