A Family Affair

It’s a family affair, this fall collection.

My beautiful sister Edwina, named after our legendary stylish grandmother, sketched out a Crown Imperial flower for our scarves.

Our crossbody bag with swappable insider is named after my twenty-something year old niece, Maddison May, because she changes her mind about her look and style every few hours.

Also heavily influenced by my father, David Hicks, and his infamous geometric patterns, I created my own repeat pattern design, named Heritage, seen on the scarves and our new Flat Stanley pouch.

Please tell me you know who Flat Stanley is. He’s that small chap who is thin enough to slip under doors and travels the world on great adventures.

Around my mother’s home in England there are fields of wild red poppies and the disgusting smelling acid yellow rapeseed crop. Both these colors make their debut in the collection along side taxi black, bridesmaid ivory, double decker red and Cornwall blue. Very British indeed, whilst stingray, gecko, shells, and crescent moons take us back to the Bahamas.

Now I sincerely hope you like this fall collection, because believe me– designing, creating, developing, manufacturing and delivering a full fall collection on time, on a tiny budget, with a tiny team involves a certain amount of patience and a lot of rolling your eyes so far to the back of your head you actually end up having rearranged your eyeballs.
