We thought the autumnal colours and the classic architecture of the park portrayed the personality behind the collection and really showcased the garments in an authentic way. With the theme of adventure and the great outdoors, our aim was to try and tell a story throughout the images whilst putting together some of our favourite pieces from the collection. Whether it be a lazy Sunday afternoon walk wrapped up in our winter wools or leaving work for the weekend in one of our organic cotton dresses, the new collection is complete with chic stripes, loose silhouettes and classic knits for any adventure.

After a successful day shooting at Heaton Park, it was time to head back to the studio and shoot the rest of the collection. As always, we decided to keep the styling quite minimal and clean to let the clothes do the talking! We added hats and bags where appropriate to continue with our theme of adventure and kept the shoes classically British - think wellies, Doc Martens and chunky brogues!
Our winter model Gigi was the perfect choice and exceeded our expectations on the day. Her blonde hair contrasted beautifully against the clothing and she had a very natural look which again tied in with our desired aesthetic. The makeup and hair was also kept very simple; lots of nudes and earthy copper tones that reflected both the new collection and our surroundings at Heaton Park. We are a little bit in love with the new lookbook and hope you will be too!
