India Hicks: Island Style
Escape to paradise with the fashion guru’s newest book on island living.
By Sarah Emily Gilbert
Caribbean flair collides with British sensibility in India Hicks’ third and newest tome, India Hicks: Island Style. A miscellany of breathtaking personal and professional photographs, design tips, and personal advice, Island Style acts as a bona fide scrapbook of Hicks’ home life. Readers are thrown into the colorful and free-spirited world of her Hibiscus Hill home in the Bahamas where she lives with her designer husband, four children, and fostered Bahamian son.
For the former Ralph Lauren model, home goods designer, and founder of the India Hicks Island Living Collection, the Caribbean is as much of an escape for Hicks as it is for her readers. But while Hicks is far away from the metropolitan life, her design background – and bloodline is ever present in the gorgeously designed book. With a degree in photography, Hicks’ interests mirror that of her esteemed interior decorator father, David Hicks. As a result, Hicks’ lifestyle is tinged with a deep appreciation for design, style, and art that is clearly conveyed in every page Island Style. Below, Urban Agenda provides a snapshot of this richly designed Rizzoli book:
