duly noted: all in the family.
June 24, 2011
Most families share at least some distinguishing traits, whether it be hazel eyes or slightly crooked noses, but for the Hickses, it’s something that runs a little deeper: creativity. Famed interior designer David Hicks has long been known for his fearless design efforts and high-profile work, but his children, Ashley and India, have been busy paving their own distinctive creative journeys.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Ashley Hicks has continued his own foray into the home arena by collaborating with London-based fragrance guru Jo Malone on a set of limited-edition candles. The candles are an homage to his father, bearing the design legend’s name and three classic, geometric prints from the David Hicks pattern archive with signature scents: Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir and Red Roses (from left).
And Ashley isn’t the only Hicks expanding the world of home fragrances. His younger sister India has partnered with Crabtree & Evelyn to release her Island Living Body & Home collections. Inspired by the beauty and allure of the Caribbean, the soft, beachy smells she captures in her line of candles and diffusers, lotions and perfumes, are infused from her favorite island flowers and trees for an intimate glimpse into her own seaside lifestyle.
