Following the Hucklebones AW12 photo shoot it was really evident how much our little models Agnes & Bea have grown over the past couple of years. Their sweet round faces have changed, their legs are getting longer and they have developed their own little personalities.
It’s wonderful to see these changes. Here is a little interview of them both and some fabulous images from the Hucklebones archive.
Do you have a nickname?
What is your favourite animal?
Bea: The giraffe because it has a very big neck
Agnes: Parrots, they have beautiful colours
What books do you like?
Bea: Any books with animals
Agnes: History books about the olden days
What would be your perfect day?
Bea: A perfect day to Bea is when everything runs well at school and her teacher let them build puzzles and draw their own stories on paper.
Agnes: Going to the beach for a little swim in the sea, hunt for crabs and have an ice cream.
Do you have a favourite Hucklebones dress?
Bea: Metallic pink pleated dress (AW12)
Agnes: the spotty blue 50’s dress (SS11) and the gold dress from (AW12)

We do not have long to wait before the launch of the beautiful Hucklebones autumn winter 2012 collection, in the meantime here are a few images from behind the scenes at the photo shoot. The shoots are always lots of fun and it’s fantastic to see the garments come to life on our gorgeous little models, Beatriz, Agnes, Danielle and Sofia. You may recognise these familiar little faces and how they are growing!
Favourite outfits amongst the girls were the fabulous metallic pleated dresses and skirts and the soft pink heart prints. I have too many favourites to mention!
Bye for now…

Its been a while since we last posted here on the Hucklebones blog, its been a busy few months here at Hucklebones HQ. One thing that has been lovely during this busy period is the number of photos we have received from stockists and customers. We always love to see Hucklebones items worn by their lucky owners and thought we would share a few with you here.

Last weekend we spent a glorious Spring Sunday exploring Richmond Park in London. We barely scratched the surface but much fun was had tracking down the majestic deer, picnicking and spotting beautiful but very noisy parakeets that have taken the park to be their home. We had homemade quiche and lemon cake and flasks of tea to quench our thirst.
The leaves on the trees are now emerging and the ferns were magically uncurling out of the ground. We are looking forward to returning soon with another delicious picnic, a kite and the desperate hopes of spotting the fawns. They should be born in the next few weeks!
How exciting to explore such a natural environment in central London! (Agnes wearing sunshine flutter sleeve dress from Hucklebones SS11)

Many people ask when they come across the brand Hucklebones where the name is from and what is means. A very old word, in the past used as another name for’ jacks’ or ‘five stones’ the ancient game where five small objects are thrown up and then caught again. For me it has a very different meaning, Hucklebones has been a part my life for the most part in the form a grumpy yet loveable character who found his way to us in somewhat unusual circumstances.
In 1986 when I was four years old a group of Shetland ponies were seized from a farm during a animal welfare rescue. Most of the ponies were malnourished and in a very poor condition including a Shetland mare and foal. Sadly due to her condition the mare had to be put to sleep. Her foal however lived and needed a home. My parents were contacted by a lady working on the case and asked if they could provide a safe home for the orphaned foal, he was going to need a lot of care and careful feeding to help him gain strength and get him on the road to recovery. So the scruffy little Shetland foal came to live with us, he was named ‘Hucklebones’ after a pony out one of my fathers favourite childhood storybooks and as he grew so did his character. We found that this small and sometimes seemingly shy little pony was full of determination and had a keen sense for adventure. Not satisfied with the grazing allocated for the other ponies he lived with he would keenly squeeze (or sometimes even roll) under the fence and amble off in the search of greener pastures so to speak! He was often invited to visit us on Christmas day when he would be brought into the lounge for treats in a now familiar family tradition which probably resembles the nativity stable rather than any civilised family gathering!
Twenty six years on he is still with us and happily enjoying life as he has become accustom to. His hilariously grumpy character (we often liken him to Eeyore from Winnie-the-Pooh) which despite his best efforts to keep up is always softened by a big kiss (which he secretly loves) or by an opportunity for adventure. Leave a door or gate ajar for a second and his inquisitive nature is almost bound to get the better of him!

Emma has shared this wonderful spread she made for Agnes’ 4th birthday party. We love how she has chosen a red colour theme and found matching paper straws and cups to tie it all together. Happy Birthday Agnes.
