Spring / Summer 2014 Hucklebones 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. As well as beautiful printed silk to echo the story in fantastic party pieces.

Hucklebones creates beautiful clothing for girls aged three months to ten years with a handwriting that is clean, feminine and sophisticated. Every garment is meticulously considered, with close attention to tailoring, cut and detail. The collections are developed to offer clothing that reflect both the upcoming trends and silhouettes as well as maintaining a classic timelessness, key to all Hucklebones designs.
Each season offers new, specially created prints that are designedâ 'in-house'â from our London based studio and fabrics are carefully sourced for quality and uniqueness, many from British and European mills. Natural fibres are integral to every collection and usually include wool, cashmere, fine silks, crisp cotton and linen. The majority of the Hucklebones collection is made in Europe, working with carefully selected manufacturers who share our vision that quality and attention to detail is paramount. Hucklebones knitwear is produced in Nepal by a company specialising in premium cashmere garments using only the finest and longest cashmere yarns that not only give the most beautiful finish they are also softer, last longer and have a higher resistance to pilling than shorter fibre cashmere yarns.
A typical Hucklebones collection encompasses beautifully considered outerwear, delicious dresses, fine jersey and charming knitwear. Gathered soft silk garments sit against crisp tailored styles, an air of understated chic, and a refined take on children's day-wear. The colour palette of each collection enjoys the celebration of sumptuous hues, delicate pastels and jewel brights selected in an almost sophisticated fashion, yet still with enough whimsy to remain suited to the delicate frames of children.
Hucklebones collections are aimed to inspire the design conscious. Our clothes offer superb value for money as are made with long-lasting quality fabrics and well invested design to create beautiful heirloom clothing which at the same time maintains the integrity and innocence of childhood.
I hope you love this collection as much as I do!!
