Spring / Summer 2014 looks at the age of innovation, inspiration and ambition, of the incredible spectacle that was the 1909 Air Show in Paris’ Grand Palais. The 85 piece collection draws from images of this time where hot air balloons drifted across the skies, a symbol of spirit and adventure.
The collection is light and whimsical, soft delicate lace pieces sit alongside smart, tailored, outerwear. Minimalism chic, it’s all in the cut. Fun candy stripes make for bold and beautiful day wear, boxy bow-backed jackets and tiered bodice dresses. A palette of soft nudes and creams are contrasted against strong pops of Marigold, Aqua, Ink and Coral.
Never before has the Hucklebones girl looked so cool. Bon Voyage!
The Hucklebones Spring / Summer 2014 Collection is now arriving in stores. View the collection lookbook here, or find a stockist here. Follow us on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook.

Its always great to see the Hucklebones clothing being worn and enjoyed by little girls around the world. Its even easier now with all the social media platforms to share your snaps. Here are just a few that we have received over the last few months.
All the way over in Canada these gorgeous little girls Naomi & Charlotte looked like they had a super time in their family Holiday photoshoot wearing their Hucklebones lace dresses.

Picking through leaves and muddy puddles we found a spot to play, sing and listen to the trees creak as they dropped their leaves and a scuttling squirrel collected acorns. Autumn light glowing through the gaps in the trees, creating soft shadows as we played.
Beautifully styled and photographed by the talented ‘take a picture lady‘ – Emma Donnelly and showcasing pieces from the gorgeous Hucklebones AW13 collection in the pretty setting of an ancient British woodland.

Happy Friday everyone! I am so pleased to be able to share this stunning series of photos by the talented ‘Take a Picture Lady‘ Emma. Taken on a recent adventure with her family and beautiful daughter Agnes, these truly wonderful photos really capture the spirit of the Hucklebones girl. Agnes wears the Hucklebones Spring / Summer ’12 Ditsy Flower Ruffle Bodice Dress and looks like a modern day Alice in Wonderland!
Have a great weekend – Zoë x
A Hucklebones girl is ready to explore. In nature, historical buildings or in the city. The clothes do not inhibit her, they inspire her. Free and easy and delightful to wear. The spirit of childhood.
Embracing the curiosities and discoveries of this tower in the middle of the British countryside; a huge dollhouse, stuffed tiger heads and intriguing spiral staircases, a brother, and chickens in the yard. Butterflies and flowers. Summer memories.

After working with Emma from ‘Take a Picture lady‘ where she beautifully captured the exciting behind the scenes at a Hucklebones photoshoot here and here and knowing how she works with light to create wonderfully atmospheric images, its no surprise that her photos capturing family life are equally as captivating. Recently Emma shared these fabulous images of Agnes wearing her Hucklebones SS13 denim plait dress at Whitstable beach. Its wonderful to see the adventurous spirit of children depicted so beautifully in these sunset photos.
Thank you Emma.

The other day the talented Luella from next door popped over to show us her latest creation. After completing a course in machine sewing she proudly showed us her incredible story book entirely made from fabric and stitched together using lots of different sewing techniques. Not only did the book show her mastery of sewing it also amazed us with the story line of ‘Neil’ the mouse who brazenly sets out on his quest by cuddling a cat! Much to his misfortune he is quickly devoured by the cat and Luella’s book cleverly shows his descent into the cats tummy!!
All hope is lost for ‘Neil’ as it seems there can be no return from such fate, however on the final page we were invited to help save ‘Neil’ by pulling him to safety! Miraculously ‘Neil’ is saved – bobble hat and all!
Its incredible the imagination children have and what they can do with it when their creative juices get going. It was great to see Luella’s book and we all had a good chuckle in the office.
Luella’s took her sewing class with ‘Annie 2 Pins’ a creative soft sculptor – for more information you can find a link to her work and website here.

Last weekend Agnes was invited to a “Knights & Princesses” Party. I was expecting the ‘dressing up’ box to be wedged open and the usual disney style princess costumes to be requested. But alas, Agnes decided all by herself that she wanted to be a ‘proper’ princess! Out came her favourite Hucklebones blue & white spot dress (summer 12), finished off with blue coat & hat (winter 10) and sheepskin collar (winter 12).She was extremely proud of her ensemble!When we got to the party she did not care for a moment that she was the only girl without a full length flowing number on andI watched on and was amazed by her poise and self confidence.
What this also highlighted to me is the timeless beauty that Hucklebones garments create. Mixing up the seasons and creating an individual and stylish look that a little girl is proud to wear, a Modern Day Princess!
I have been using Instagram a lot lately and I love it. It’s a fantastic way to share images. We would really love you to follow @Hucklebones on Instagram and #hucklebones any gorgeous photos you take of your girls out and about in Hucklebones. I look forward to seeing you on there.
Bye for now,

The very talented Emma Donnellly from Take A Picture Lady was backstage snapping away at the Hucklebones SS13 photoshoot capturing the exciting behind the scenes action. We are really excited to present her beautiful images and thoughts here on the Hucklebones blog.
‘Behind-the-scenes’ at a Hucklebones shoot is always a really fun exciting time for the girls; reuniting, meeting new friends, a bit of pampering, eating lots of popcorn, oh and of course, modelling the gorgeous Hucklebones collection! Favourites amongst the girls where the shiny silver & gold pleats, pretty peter pan collars and big bow headbands and clips. Whilst we await the launch of Hucklebones SS13 here are a few glimpses of what is to come… Emma.
