Spring In Sight
I know for many people this time of year can be very gloomy; dark nights, cold mornings, damp days but as an Aquarian I’ve had my birthday to look forward to.
In addition to Valentines Day, I met MWH (my wonderful Harvey) in February, 19 years ago, so there has always been plenty to celebrate in this month.
This year has felt tougher for some reason and I’m beginning to empathise with my Maternal Grandmother and indeed my Mum who dislikes winter intensely, something to do with being born into the glorious Jamaican sunshine I guess. I was born in good old Birmingham so I don’t have that excuse so maybe this year it’s more to do with getting to an age which is closer to 60 than 50, 57 to be exact.
That said, there have been a couple of special highlights this week including a mini shoot we did yesterday for the first phase of SS19, btw thank you to those of you who have emailed asking when is Spring coming, makes it so worthwhile.
We shot a small number of pieces representing the first collection, some of your favourites are here; cashmere blends, power foundation cropped pants, sandwashed silk all mixed with Breton stripes but not just any Breton stripes, at Hope we’ve done them in beautiful cashmere and cotton blend, it feels divine.
Huge thanks to Suzannah who agreed to model for us again. Suzannah lives locally and applied to our Real Women model competition. Suzannah has 5 grown up children and 2 grand-daughters and is currently enjoying a renaissance in her modelling career.
Finally and under instruction from MWH I’m running away for a few days of Winter sun, I’m off to visit my cousin who’s been teaching in Antigua for a couple of years. I’ve never been to the island so I’m very excited. I am also desperate to feel the sun on my bones and swim in the Caribbean Sea, oh and seeing Junior of course!!
By the time I get back we will hopefully be ready to launch some newness and Spring truly will be in sight!
Have a lovely weekend everyone and I do hope you like the BTS images, we think Suzannah just gets better and better. Hope you agree,
