We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: the heritage of our brand and where we originated from really is where we start when it comes to photographing our collections. Exploring the Lake District and Cumbria to find a location might sound like an easy task. Thanks to the extensive amount of remarkable views it's enjoyable, however, choosing one location is an extremely hard decision.
But… we did it!
On the western shore of Derwent Water sits the tranquil Lingholm Estate and Walled Garden. The traditional estate, just 5 minutes’ drive from Keswick, lies in the heart of the northern Lake District. Surrounded by beautiful paths that lead you through the gardens onto the private lake view, it's a wildlife haven. We dodged numerous wild pheasants and ducks, and got slightly distracted by the endearing herd of alpacas grazing nearby.
Astoundingly we managed to choose one of the only days in February to have sunshine. The perfect choice because we were shooting our Spring and Summer collections! With rails full of our amazing new season garments, from sartorial striped variations to fresh feminine florals, off we went to create this season’s imagery.
Setting up our base in ‘Keepers Cottage’, one of their stunning holiday lets, we prepared for a busy day. Luckily, we were close to the busy café, and their amazing selection of homemade sweet treats.
From the estate’s famous walled garden, to the stunning private lake view, the team explored all avenues in order to produce some fantastic imagery that we can’t wait to share with you all! But for now, some of our new collections are currently arriving online!
