Get That Retro Vibe - AW14 photoshoot: Behind the Scenes

Posted by Danielle

With our new arrivals rolling in, we decided it was time to head off on our latest photoshoot to show case some of the gorgeous new collections from many of our 70 or so brands! This time round we went for a very retro 60s theme; and what says retro more than antique furniture and vintage clothing? 

Cue day 1. Location - an antique/vintage furniture store in the heart of Manchester, the perfect set up to get that homey 60s vibe we were so deeply digging! Bright yellow chairs and a mustard couch combined with a hunky old TV set and some dazzlingly colourful tea cups and crockery set the scene just perfectly. We just had to throw in some polar neck sweaters, A-line mini skirts, shift dresses, big hair and... oh, our fabulous selection of socks (duh!) and we were good to go! Take a look at a few behind the scenes snaps...

On day 2 we (in a haze of craziness) braved the cold and wind for an outdoor shoot in some grassy parts of Great Britain, even making a stop at a lovely local farmhouse where the lovely local farmhouse owner even let us borrow her dog... Though she was a little bit camera shy (the dog, not the owner!)
