Behind the Scenes: Spring Summer 2015 shoot...

For  Spring Summer 2015, our vintage inspired collections combine colour pallettes and patterns we discovered on our travels with retro styling. So when discussing shoot locations, we couldn't think of a better place to reflect our latest offering than the beautifully diverse city of Marrakesh. Alice, the shoot director, takes us behind the scenes...

We asked Alice about the location our 'Heritage' collection was shot:

HERITAGE

 

'We shot in a mud village in the desert about 45 minutes outside of Marrakesh. We were hosted by one of the families who cooked us lunch and provided plenty of fresh mint tea...'

CITY

 

'For our 'City' collection we arrived at the Grand Bazarre for sunrise and settled on the roof of a local carpet shop, in the afternoon we took to the busy streets of Marrakesh..'

'Shooting the Livorno Shift Dress in the middle of a path in the grand bizarre was a little awkward, Emily was having to stay very still to allow simon to get the movement in the background... '

'For 'Occasion', We shot in a beautiful and quiet Riad located within the Grand Bizarre, blue tiles and fresh, tropical plants surrounded us...'
