There's some big changes happening at Little Deer and we are so excited to share with you.
After a lot of thought we have decided to engage more with the interiors sections of our shop. We will be discontinuing clothing and jewellery and will be welcoming a whole new collection of beautiful homewares and gifts to the store.
We feel particularly drawn to interiors in the last year and feel it's only right to embrace this feeling and to go full steam ahead and concentrate all our inspiration and attention into a more streamlined collection.
Firstly we welcome new brand Madam Stoltz to the shop. Based in Germany Madam Stoltz takes a strong influence from India, with two collections being released every year. Shop Madam Stoltz at Little Deer by clicking here.
We have new designs hitting the shop end of April from our in-house interiors brand. Expect more copper goodies, indoor gardens (perfect for you city dwellers), concrete beauties and macrame.
We did it! Our first ever interiors photoshoot - and it was brilliant!
Little Deer friend and stylist Antonia Mckenzie travelled to the location with us in our van where we met Photographer Rachel Manns and her assistant Martin. Our good friend and previous Little Deer photographer, Dale Weeks also met us on location to shoot behind the scenes - it was a dream team!
Located in Hastings right next to the sea - the apartment we shot in worked perfectly - with a balcony looking right over the beach.
We can't wait to share the final images with you ...watch this space!

Opposite Selfridges, the Pop Up was the perfect location. Curated by Nina (owner of jewellery shop Magpie on the Run), the pop up featured some incredible and unique brands such as Chalk Jewellery, Edge of Ember, Orwell & Austen, Sarah Baily and so many more!
We fell in love with one brand in particular and will be stocking their pieces very soon, watch this space for more information on that!
The open evening was a blast and it was so lovely to see the pop up come together (despite the fact Nina had barely any time to get the whole space set up and ready for shopping!)

We first met Leila (founder of Waking Grey) last summer at Wilderness Festival. I instantly fell in love with Leila's style and branding for Waking Grey. The stall looked amazing, really really amazing.
It's hard to make a stall look good at a festival. You're faced with seriously uneven ground and possible mud. Traders are given a small empty space to display their goods and you have to come up with something functional and aesthetically pleasing sometimes in as little as half a day. Leila styled the space with white rails, a statement rug and homely details such as a chair and a few green plants.
Fast forward 5 months on and Leila and I have worked together for the first time. Hand picking a unique and beautiful collection of Vintage Clothing for Little Deer.
We spoke to Leila about where Waking Grey all began:
One thing that stands out for me is that collection after collection each piece is so special. Leila doesn't create a collection with a couple of 'statement' pieces and then just a ton of fillers - each and every garment is hand picked and sits well next to the one before. We asked Leila how she gets inspired to curate the perfect collections:
Finally we were keen to know what Leila's favourite piece from the Waking Grey collection at The Little Deer was:
The mustard silk shirt, it's so simple but a really great transitional item, delicate enough to wear on its own, or great layered up over a simple tee with some boyfriend jeans for a more casual look.
You can shop Waking Grey at Little Deer online and at in our Brighton Shop (First Floor, Open Market, Marshalls Row, Brighton, BN1 4JU)
