Harbour Island...

oomph's newest collection for 2011 is named Harbour Island. We have a special affection for this three mile long island in the Bahamas - after all, it is where oomph was conceived!  We think Harbour Island has the most beautiful pristine powder pink beach in the Caribbean. Its center, Dunmore Town, was the first capitol of the Bahamas and to this day, probably the most charming. It has pastel colored New England style colonial cottages lining the streets. Their bright hues and the turquoise water of the harbor make it look like an oomph color deck fanned out in nature.

Harbour Island is the oldest settlement in the Bahamas dating back to the 1600's.  It's charming and old fashioned - no golf, no big hotels, no fancy stores. It's not for everyone - roosters wake you up every morning and the power is off more than it's on! Your luggage rarely gets there the same day you do and getting there is not for the faint of heart. There is no air strip on the island - you have to fly to a neighboring island, take a taxi and then a water taxi!

Maybe that's why we love it. It's a simple life, uncomplicated and beautiful, and why we named our favorite new collection after our favorite place - simple lines, great style, and classic good looks.


Plan a visit to our favorite place by way of the NYIGF on Pier 94, Booth 41005 in NYC, January 29 - February 2, 2011. We think you're going to like it.
