Ahead of Sophie's in store appearance, we asked her a few questions...
What is your biggest source of inspiration?
I think you can find inspiration everywhere. You can look at something and think ooh that might work somewhere else. It could be something like a dandelion puff or something you do when cooking and it works particularly well or doesn’t work at all and you think there is an opportunity there. I think its important to go to as many things as possible – galleries, shows, walks in nature – see beautiful things and be inspired!
What does your new collection consist of?
My new collection with Antonio Coela Lima is a beautiful bed linen range. I like to spend as much time in bed as possible and so good bed linen is really important to me and I think it is important that you can make your bed linen a focal point within your bedroom. I have therefore tried to mix the highest quality fabric with gorgeous designs and stunning details to create timeless, elegant pieces that will freshen up your room and give you a luxurious nights sleep.
What is the favourite part of developing your new range?
Putting it all together. I really enjoy the process of getting inspiration – you start with lots and lots of ideas and then hone it down until it begins to solidify into something more concrete and I am so delighted with the final outcome.
Describe the collection in 3 words...
Clean, fresh and inviting.
What can we look forward to seeing from you next year?
We are working on lots of new development with all my license partners as well as lots of exciting things happening on our website. Some of our projects are top secret at the moment too so watch this space! I am off to India later this year on a fabulous sourcing trip – travelling all over visiting factories and artisans to create lots of beautiful new things for the shop, so I am very excited about that.
