Another show, another collection. Time is really flying by these days! It was great to catch up with everyone again at Bubble which this time was held in the impressive business design centre, Angel. The high glass ceiling cast a fantastic natural light over all the exhibitors and everyone was in high spirits. Positioned within the ‘Village green’ a section containing the fantastically creative british brands such as Mini Moderns, Poppy & Ned, Ella & Otto & Poppy. We had a really great time and the collection was very well received. Thank you to all who visited.

The last few weeks have whizzed by here at Hucklebones HQ, with preparations for Bubble London and final tweaks to the S/S 2010 collection. One thing we always like to do before bubble is to collect a few interesting vintage items that we will use on our stand at Bubble. We knew what we wanted, a sweet little 40’s or 50’s suitcase that would tie into our theme of those classic British holidays where the car is loaded up with luggage and off you all go, the adventure being in the journey rather than the destination. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when I stumbled across this gorgeous little treasure in my local antiques shop. The grey and brown patterned outside is set off with the lovely brown enamel handle, even the clasps work! It was perfect.

This weekend was the second edition of the Kids.Modern show in Dulwich here in London. Again a fabulous array of creatives were on show to the public and we were proud to be a part of it after visiting the first show 12 months ago. Mixing it with the likes of Mini Moderns, Cloud Cuckoo Designs and Clothkits really gives us the chance to catch up and share any inside news, and generally complain about the weather as us English always seem to.
Kids.Modern aim was to inspire people to imagine pieces already in their homes with room style settings. Furniture and collectables downstairs in the arresting 60’s hall with its impressive floor to ceiling glass and concrete wall and view of the green playing fields beyond. Designers like us ran along the upper gallery with more design, fashion and accessories housed in the Mezzanine overlooking the hall.
