4th September 2017
When it comes to our photo shoots, the heritage of our brand and where our story began is always at the forefront of ideas! The Lake District and Cumbria will always be the heart of our location choice. With so many stunning locations, it can be hard to narrow the choice to just one!
Without wanting to give too much away, this season's collection consists of autumnal hues and luxurious leather. To showcase the exquisite styles we needed the perfect location. After many locations scouting days, we finally decided... it's got to be Muncaster Castle!
The historic castle made for a striking backdrop, and stands within 77 acres of tranquil gardens. Offering a blend of cultivated areas and natural woodlands, together with fascinating vistas across the famous Lakeland fells - it felt like the perfect choice.
With our rails of jackets and equipment all packed up, we were soon winding our way from Ambleside to the Eskdale valley. We were carefully watching the weather, praying for a break in the continuous summer of rain. Our prayers were answered... we got sun. Beaming hot sun. Without a cloud in the sky. Not necessarily what you want for your Autumn / Winter shoot, but we know better than to complain about the weather!
And whilst shooting our new Autumn / Winter 2017 ranges, we took some behind the scenes images to give you a sneak peak at what we have been up to!
Above is Meg our Dog model for the day caught sleeping on the job!
We hope you love the new styles, and the new photographs. You'll see some of the new ranges already on the website, but keep checking back for the full launch.
