Launching our first clothing and swimwear lines
We kicked off the year with the launch of our very first swimwear and resort collection, followed by our debut Ready-to-Wear collection. It's so exciting to see our prints translated onto beautiful new fabrics and shapes, and it's opened up a whole new world of adventures for us.
Creative Director Alice said "yes" and proceeded to rock a beautiful antique engagement ring. Mazel tov!
The Lily and Lionel Woman series
We hand-picked Arabella Greenhill, Savannah Miller, Jessica Diner and Natasha Corrett for our web video series not just because we admire them but because we felt they really represented the Lily and Lionel woman. Getting to know these incredible women and hear about how they manage such hectic lives was inspiring.
Future Dreams scarf
We teamed up with breast cancer charity Future Dreams to create the Hope scarf to help raise vital funds for research and treatment. Future Dreams was founded by mother and daughter Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie, after suffering the effects of breast cancer. The Hope scarf's classic leopard print was inspired by Danielle's favourite Lily and Lionel scarf.
Making Grazia's fashion charts
You can imagine how cool and calm we were in the office when we saw our Isla Putty Silk Shirt Dress grace the cover of Grazia magazine, and make the Fashion Charts inside - i.e not at all.
Amazing Summer shoot
When you're planning a shoot for a summer collection in the English countryside and score a day of blazing sunshine in a week of pouring rain. The power of positive thinking, people.
Our first edition of the Lily and Lionel magazine
With contributions from travel editor Juliet Kinsman and the stars of our Lily and Lionel Woman series, we loved sharing our first edition of the Lily and Lionel magazine with you in every order.
Turning 7 years old
To celebrate, we bought all the things we loved at birthday parties when we were 7: rainbow cake, balloons and rainbow ribbon. Rock and roll.
Exclusive Liberty scarves – London series
We teamed up with Liberty to create a capsule collection of exclusive scarves just for their renowned Scarf Hall. Each scarf featured one of our favourite views of London, our home town and favourite city in the world.
All the support from bloggers
From La Petite Anglaise and Lily Pebbles to Wearing It Today and The London Chatter all sporting Lily and Lionel this year, we're so thankful for the positive responses and support we've had to the new collections from the women whose style we admire the most.
So, after a vintage year, we're so ready for 2016. Lots of love,
The Lily and Lionel team x
