I first discovered Chikae and Jessica, aka Okishima & Simmonds, whilst working on a creative photography project, and was completely blown away by their artistry with flowers. There is something truly wonderful in the way they combine their love of nature with contemporary design.
Recently, they opened a pop-up store on the Kings Road in Chelsea, so I called in to say hello and take a few pics over the weekend. As expected, every area of the store is thoughtfully curated with beautiful, natural details, modern colour palettes, and the most incredible floral designs everywhere.
Jessica’s friendly dog Bruno was also on hand to greet customers and show them around.
If you are in the area (or planning your 2016 wedding or event) keep an eye out for it. It is located in the old Hand and Flower pub at 617 Kings Road and is well worth a visit.
