We always enjoy receiving pictures from our Hucklebones fans and loved this polaroid taken after a day out at the beach. The Hucklebones dotty check shirt dress is a great look for casual days out and enjoying weekends together at the beach or park. If you have an iphone you too can create these lovely polaroid effect pictures using the ‘Shake it Photo‘ application.

Recently we got to work with talented photographer Alan Bremner for our Autumn / Winter 2010 photoshoot. Not only did Alan take some utterly fantastic images of the collection, he also was a complete hit with our models, who by the end were feeding him popcorn between shots! I cant wait to reveal a sneak peek of the photographs which we are absolutely thrilled with, but until then here are a few gorgeous examples of Alan’s work from his website.

This beautiful image is from a shoot in this months Junior Magazine. Titled ‘Little Italy’, it is styled by Matthew Holroyd and photographed by Mariella Perruna. Although the shoot was taken in Italy this image conjures up a magical mood and reminds me of one of my favorite films by director Guillermo del Toro, Pan’s Labyrinth. A story of childhood fantasy which balances innocence and adventure with the darker side of the imagination. The dress pictured is the Hucklebones Frill Neck Sleeveless Dress in Sunshine Yellow, perfect for this summers adventures.

We are so excited to be collaborating with Start-rite shoes for our Autumn / Winter 2010 photoshoot. With such a fantastic selection of beautiful shoes they are the perfect match for our new collection. A memory from our own childhoods, Start-rite were the shoes we first learnt to buckle, and accompanied us through those precious milestones, like learning to ride a bike or our first day at school. A precious little shoe for the precious little feet of our loved ones, as the saying on the poster goes “well begun is half done!”.

Today I visited the Quilts exhibition at the V & A, a selection of fantastic patchwork and quilted covers dating from 1700 to present day. I strongly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in crafts as it is truly inspirational, the workmanship and skills used in the quits is astounding. Hours of work on vastly sized covers made up of tiny delicately stitched pieces. Things I loved were the peek holes to view the back of the quilts which gave snapshots of the construction. Careful hand stitches holding each segment together, neatly pressed seams and a glimpse of the sheer magnitude of work involved. Some of the quilts were an array of richly coloured sumptuous fabrics which in their time expressed wealth and stature. Others were pieced together from recycled fabrics taken from items of clothing and household textiles which inspires the imagination to wonder, what were these other items? and to think about the history collected and combined in such a glorious way.
Quilts is showing until the 4th July 2010, visit the V & A for details.

Not to be outdone by her sister Daisy, Betty looks dashing in her Hucklebones moss green coat while out and about this Easter. Teamed beautifully with a Caramel dress, Betty knows her stuff when it comes to girlie style.
