AW16 Photoshoot - Behind the scenes

Last week we had the first part of our AW16 photoshoot in an enchanted wood and lodge deep in the countryside. A log burner kept us warm and fueled with toasted marshmallows and our model helped grind fresh coffee for our giant kettle!

Here are a few sneak peeks behind the scenes, while we edit the final shots. The collection will available be online in the next couple of weeks...

Our newest model was a natural!

A few exciting changes for AW16

We're really excited to be launching the new AW16 collection in just a few weeks. As a company we're always looking for ways to give our customers something special and to work in the most ethical way we can. We also have far more ideas than we can possibly fit into one collection. So, with all this in mind we have decided to do things a bit differently for our latest collection...


When we first started we produced most of our collection here in the UK, then we found a fantastic childrenswear factory in Portugal who have been producing our collection for the past few seasons, this made perfect sense for us as many of our fabrics and trims were also sourced in Europe. However, we have been looking hard to find partners in the UK that we can work with going forward as we would love to be able to make at least part of our collection here, especially as our own prints are all produced in the UK.


We're now really excited to be able to share that we are producing part of the AW16 collection here in the UK. These pieces will be handmade in our own studio in very small numbers, sometimes only 2 or 3 pieces per size, but that means they will be extra special and we can keep adding to the collection as we go along, we already have some exciting Christmas development in the pipeline! We also hope that we will be able to share even more of our original prints and designs with you.

We are continuing to produce our lovely knitwear with our existing supplier, we think the quality is second to none, and a few of our existing styles are still being made in Portugal so look out for  MADE IN THE UK in our online shop if you want to buy something truly handmade and homegrown!

SS16 In the press

As spring/summer draws to a close, (at least in fashion terms!) we thought we would share some of the lovely press we've had this season.

It's always great to see our collection styled and modeled by other people, it inspires us so much. Below are just a few of the pieces featuring out SS16 collection. We've just made our final sale markdowns so pop over to the website if this has inspired you too!

We have popped up on the Little Spree website and Instagram feed a few times this season, they love our Pip sundress! Sarah and Nicky have the best taste, so we're honored to be featured.

Polona at Baby Jungle has a gorgeous girl, toddler boy and a new baby, all kitted out in Poppy & Hester! She wrote this fantastic blogpost earlier in the summer and is a big fan of our knitwear!

The photos of our Spring/Summer collection by Liesbet at the M Word Mag in Belgium were just amazing! Her styling is so sweet and who can resist a toddler in sunglasses? She also featured us last season and always gives the best fashion tips for kids.

Secret Garden Photoshoot

You may remember earlier in the year our summer beach photoshoot was hijacked by some late spring snow! We retreated to the studio and took some sweet shots of our little model indoors, but ever since we have been itching to take some more photos that capture the essence of the collection a bit better.

Finally a couple of weeks ago we got together again and took these new shots in a secret garden location in Norfolk. We hope you like them! and fingers crossed our British summer gets going soon...

P.S. We have 25% off Pip, our perfect summer sundress  online this week, available in three beautiful fabrics from 6 months - 7-8yrs.
