Introducing Harper Scout – from sea to city summer fashion19/06/2017
Harper Scout is the brainchild of London based design duo, Lucy and Corinne, creating beautiful beachwear in unique printed fabrics.
This season’s SS17 STARS AND PALMS collection comes in two stunning prints in four different styles; The Eden, The Stella, The Boyfriend, The Alice.
Working with a London based print designer and sourcing the fabric from Italy, their aim is to design fabulous resort wear to suit all body shapes; nothing too short or too sheer.
HOW DID THE IDEA COME ABOUT?
A few years ago, whilst on holiday together in Provence, a poolside conversation led us to identifying there was a niche in the market for chic, quality cover ups at the right price. Based on our own appreciation of ‘affordable luxury’, we felt there was a gap in the market for women like us seeking something different from the high street that could also challenge the luxury brands.
WHAT DEFINES THE HS STYLE?
Understanding the benefits of travelling ‘light’ whether off on a girls weekend or packing for the family in search of sun, we wanted to design a versatile collection that one could wear effortlessly on the beach or by the pool yet was sophisticated enough to wear for lunch or a drink at the bar. We want women to feel confident, feminine and fun wearing HS!
WHAT HAS BEEN THE HIGH POINT FOR YOU AND THE BRAND?
Every time we see someone wearing a ‘HS’ or get wonderful feedback from someone LOVING their ‘HS’ that is a real high point for us. Being approached by a boutique in Portugal within two weeks of launching, who we continue to stock with this season was a real endorsement of the brand right from the start.
WHAT ARE YOUR WARDROBE ESSENTIALS?
This season, without a doubt, my denim culottes and Stan Smiths!
WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE BRAND?
We have been invited to show the collection in the States in a few months time which is super exciting for us to test the market over there and spread the word about Harper Scout!
