Featured Designer: Hucklebones

Hucklebones London. A children's clothing line full of high-end fabrics and color hues that can only be described as luxurious, modern-vintage, and timeless. With backgrounds in both women's fashion and graphics/illustration, designers Zoe and Dan felt inspired to create something that would give a little extra excitement to the market of high end toddler fashion....and thus Hucklebones was born.

The inspiration for many of their designs comes from Zoe and Dan's favorite pastime of wandering around French brocante and antique fairs. Hucklebones children's clothing mimics the silhouette of high end fashion in that much work is put into the shape, cut, and fit of each piece. Little ones will not only look fabulous...but they will feel fabulous wearing the latest Hucklebones wool coat. And parents will feel even better because this high quality fashion label creates garmets that can be handed down to the next generation...because the exceptional quality will last forever.

The Fall/Winter 2008 collection includes a beautiful blend of designs using 100% silks, pure wools, and cashmeres. If only they made a line for adults! Our favorite item from Hucklebones this season is the Mustard Seed Double Breasted Coat. Made from pure Italian wool, it will keep your little girl extra warm this winter. The Gilet is another must-have! Also available in mustard, its a great piece that can be used over a sweater as a jacket or to keep off the chill over a long sleeved knit. Pair with the Dotty Bow Skirt in forest green and turquoise polka dot.

Hucklebones is stocked in high end boutiques around London, Copenhagen, and several online boutiques. You may also shop their online shop at Hucklebones is offering a 10% discount to Baby Style Watch readers. The promo code is 'holly' and is valid until the end of November.
