We are anticipating the arrival of the new Hucklebones collection...and hush, deep breath, we can now give you a peek.
Hucklebones spring / summer 2011 offers a refined take on children's daywear, evocative of times gone by. This is an heirloom collection that speaks of childhood innocence.We love the beautiful dahlia print and the colour palette inspired by petals. With colour names such as Wedgewood Blue, Walnut, Buttercup, Sunshine and Peony, you immediately know these pieces are delicious, delicate and would look beautiful on your girls. With shapes that reflect feminine grace and movement: A-line dresses, neat ‘penny collar’ blouses, bows and scalloped hems. Fabrics perfect for the fresh skipping days of spring and balmy summer afternoons, with pinpoint cotton, seersucker, ditsy checks, fine cotton voile, soft fluid silk, natural jersey, crisp cottons and cool linen .
The collection takes inspiration from the fauna and flora of the garden. Oh yes, we can picture the garden that inspired such a collection - a delicate English garden with a few bursts of colour. It would of course be a garden with a lawn with space to run free, for girls dressed in soft silk dresses, floaty tops and jumpsuits, to play on picnic rugs, chase balloons, do cartwheels and possibly end the day in a beautiful sleepy heap with a crumpled dress and tangled hair.
That's the vision that the spring / summer Hucklebones collection conjours up for us.
Take a look for yourself and feel a hint of the gentle spring that will soon be here!
