Hotter hires more designers ahead of 60th anniversary
British shoe company Hotter has hired a senior designer and two freelance designers to work alongside chief product officer Claire Pearl on a more “stylish and modern” aesthetic ahead of its 60th anniversary next year.
Pearl joined Hotter in September from Hobbs, where she served as buying and merchandising director for over four years. Prior to that, she held the same role at Phase Eight and The White Company.
According to media reports, Pearl has led the new design appointments, recruiting Helen Kundra as senior designer, Dawn Linley-Hill as senior freelance designer and Camilla Andrews as freelance designer for the accessories range.
They will work with senior designer Andy Taylor, who is an expert in injection moulded footwear, reported The Retail Bulletin.
Chief product officer Claire Pearl said: “I have brought together a design team with a spread of expertise across several key areas that are fundamental to our brand’s development.
“We are already working closely on defining our DNA and I am confident this team will deliver on the thoughtful design and attention to detail demanded of this level of the market.”
Hotter CEO Ian Watson added: “We have a raft of measures throughout the business to guarantee its future development, but product is truly at the heart of everything we do. Claire’s team will build on iconic Hotter styling and elements whilst introducing a more stylish, modern and relevant emphasis to our offer.”
