☆★☆Current Inspirations☆★☆

We had a little shoot for AW12/13 last week. We wanted to create some new images of the collection and play about with the concept for the season; the contrast between concrete and colour.
We took a few shots of the graffiti we particularly admired at the awesome location we found in our home borough of Hackney.

  The collection is available to buy from our Hackney Boutique and you can shop it on-line from September.

✭✭✭The Kids are alright✭✭✭

We set two of the smaller members of the tribe to work last Friday and had them mind the shop for us.
Darcus son of Rose and Ivy daughter of Nicole.
They were awesome and seemed to kind of enjoy themselves.

From Left Poppy Skirt and pleated cardigan from AW12, Ruffle Tops, Petal Tops and Madeleine Dresses from SS12.
Our summer sale is still on for a couple more weeks and there are some seriously mind boggling bargains to be had. So come around and see us one of these afternoons, you never know, some little person might just be waiting to serve you!

Family Holiday Morocco

We had a magical time in Morocco. I got indulged with colours and textures, hand painted signs, smells, my sun kissed girls, nature and lots and lots of stargazing.

♥♡♥Nixie Loves♥♡♥

Homer referred to her as 'Artemis of the wild lands, mistress of animals'. In classical Greek mythology she is the twin sister of Apollo. The Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth and young girls, she is often depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows.

Fierce and graceful Artemis, what would you wear?

Ikaria Sandal
Nixie Clothing Petal Dress
Hellenistic Gold Oak Crown
Digby+Iona Bow Necklace
Braided locks
"O Artemis, thou maid divine, huntress fair to see, O bring that keen-nosed pack of thine, and hunt through all the world with me."

★★★Tribe Nixie in Morocco ★★★

One half of Tribe Nixie took a sabbatical to Morocco over the last couple of weeks.
 They took some time out to contemplate nature.
Pick some flowers.
Drink in the sights.
And the colours.
They have returned tanned, healthy and ready for the exciting new projects the Tribe have in store over the next half of the year.

Jamaica, a fi wi country

(Translation: Jamaica, our country)
Tribe Nixie is a mixed bunch; Creative Director Nicole Frobusch is a mix of Italian and German and Brand Director Rose is Jamaican/Irish, so we are lucky to have rich and eclectic heritage and influences to inspire us. Over the coming weekend Jamaicans all over the world will be celebrating 50 years of independence and this week we have been reflecting on the glories of this complex and much misunderstood island. 
This Golden Jubilee is all the more special to Rose as this year also marks the 50th anniversary of her mothers arrival in the UK from Jamaica or as it is affectionately know in Patois, Jamdung, JA, Jamrock or just simply, 'Backayard'.
We wanted to share with you some inspirations from the 'land of wood and water'.
The Jamaican coat of arms featuring an Arawak man and woman, pineapples, the English flag, the indigenous alligator and the inspirational Jamaican motto, 'Out of many, one people'.
Milk River Bath is a mineral spa in the South West corner of Clarendon Parish, Jamaica. Owned by the Government of Jamaica since its opening in 1794. Rose has precious memories of going there on weekends with her family to enjoy the scenery, the healing qualities of the waters & the famous, 'natural mystic' of the Jamaican countryside.
Old Harbour Bay in St. Catherine Parish. Rose's granddad Ernest Holt was a policeman there in his time & one of her many cousins owns a seafood restaurant near the bay, famous for it's lobster & fry or escovitch fish.
Old Harbour is famous for serving the best fry fish, bammy and festival on the island.
A still from the classic 1978 Jamaican film 'Rockers'

Nanny is a Jamaica national hero.
Grace Jones, one of Jamaica's most controversial daughters embodies the Jamaican spirit of independence, creativity, originality and just pure STYLE. 
Happy Jamaican Golden Jubilee to one and all, 'Out of many, ONE people'.
