Suitcase Series

Suitcase Series: Wiggy Kit

Speaking directly to our well-travelled, discerning Citizen Femme woman, Wiggy Kit curates the perfect wardrobe with versatile and wearable pieces to take you anywhere.

Wiggy Kit (AKA Wiggy Hindmarch), was built around a vision of a wardrobe that worked as hard as the women she designed for, each piece embedded with positivity, confidence, and depth. Comprising of free flowing dresses and problem solving separates that always enhance and never restrict, Wiggy Kit’s essentials have quickly become the go-to brand for an every day wardrobe that is anything but staple. What functioned beautifully on the beach, felt out of place and inappropriate against the backdrop of a city, so the brand was conceptualised in response to this frustration of having two distinct summer wardrobes; one for the beach and one for the city. 

Details disclose a melting pot of global influences that speak to the designer’s international upbringing and lifestyle. Artisanal inflections, beautiful cross stitches, military details, and shibori prints.

Born in Singapore, Hindmarch spent her formative years between the UK, Rhode Island’s Newport and North Carolina’s Charlotte, and now lives between London and her Bahamian home on Harbour Island. We couldn’t wait to delve into the suitcase psyche of Wiggy Kit.


What is the first trip you remember taking?

Moving back to the UK from Singapore (where I was born) when I was 4. I opened up an entire pot of salt and pepper and poured it over my food and my mother was so cross.

What’s been your most memorable trip and why?

The first time we went to the Bahamas, we fell in love with it and immediately began looking for a house to buy.

Anywhere there are no cars and I can travel by golf cart.
