Back in April we ventured to Northumberland to shoot our upcoming Autumn/Winter menswear collection. Northumberland’s dramatic coastline stretches over 30 miles and is home to some beautiful towns and impressive castles so we were spoilt for choice when it came to locations!
We began our shoot in the quaint town of Bamburgh. The infamous dunes that stand in the shadow of the remarkable Bamburgh Castle, provided the ideal back drop for our popular Washed Piqué Sweatshirts.
From Bamburgh we travelled south to the equally charming market town of Alnwick. Alnwick is famous for its magnificent castle and also for being one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England. This historic town was the perfect place to photograph our classic corduroy trousers and collection of tweed jackets. As well as the castle, Alnwick is renowned for its grand gardens and unique Treehouse, which is situated in a copse of mature lime trees. We were lucky enough to be allowed to photograph our festive Fair Isle and Nordic knitwear inside The Treehouse Restaurant in The Alnwick Garden and our new Hooded Sweatshirt on the rope bridges outside.
Our next stop was to one of the biggest second hand book stores in the UK, the amazing Barter Books. When you step foot into this book shop you will be lost for words. This beautiful building was originally a small manufacturing plant in the old Victorian railway station and it has still kept many of its original features. The nostalgic décor of the cosy coffee shop, with it’s roaring fires and warm ambience, beautifully complemented our Merino knitwear and flannel trousers.
The final destination for our photo shoot was Aln Valley Railway. Entirely run and operated by a dedicated team of volunteers, this award winning transport attraction has the principal objective of restoring and operating the railway between Alnmouth and Alnwick. We ended the day with some great shots of our Brushed Cotton Check Shirts alongside and on board the impressive trains.
