On Island Time. . .

We recently returned from Harbour Island in the Bahamas where we were shooting our new summer collection. 7 days full of sand, surf, sun, seafood, sunsets, swimwear (and any other relaxing words you can think of that start with the letter ‘S’).

While down there we had the opportunity to work with legendary model India Hicks and her daughter – who took quite an interest in setting up her own little photo shoot of her mom.

Like mother, like daughter.

Like mother, like daughter.

 

India, and her other half, David, have designed four West Indian style houses on the island, which have become hugely popular with fashion crews.  She owns The Sugar Mill Boutique (a treasure trove of eclectic finds), wrote a book called Island Life, has a fine jewelry line and oh yeah – she’s also raising four kids.

We also got to hang out with Ben – one of the coolest locals who had a knack for wrangling up unique props for us to use throughout the shoot. Ben was constantly on-the-go but always found time towards the end of the day to strap on his kiteboard and carve the shallows with his dogs in chase.

While it may still look and feel like winter outside your window, we promise summer is on its way.
