The Simple Life




Looking for more India Hicks in Harbour Island? Curiosity led me down the garden path to her Crabtree and Evelyn website, India Hicks Island Living. The videos are a little hokey (there are four in all), but they give some insight into the inspiration for her fragrances, and a glimpse of what life would be like as an aristocrat in paradise. Be sure to check out the "Conversation with India" segment and "Experience" the Collections.

For more India Hicks, check out the Stylecourt archive.

On a heavier note, India and her mother, Pamela Mountbatten have written a new book, India Remembered: A Personal Account of the Mountbattens During the Transfer of Power.

Other titles by India Hicks: Island Life and Island Beauty.

I am such a fan of India Hicks. The coral table is a little much, but I adore the first two images!

Agreed on the red coral overdose--I wonder if she is responsible for bringing it back into vogue or just another victim of the trend. I do like the historical red coral prints she has incorporated into her packaging though.

I worked with Mountbatten's great grand-daughter. She was an amazing young gal. I read a few books about him, so will be looking forward to this one. A family with a lot of good things, but also a lot of tragedy.
