This autumn, we shot our new collection in one of Europe’s coolest cities – Amsterdam. If you haven’t already visited it, we can tell you that this city is full of charm and history, with its cobblestone streets filled with bicycles, romantic canals and its picturesque countryside windmills. We couldn’t find a better backdrop for our autumn collection! Join us for a tour of this inspiring city. We’ll not only take you behind the scenes of our fab photoshoot, but also give you the lowdown on where to go, what to eat and where to shop!

 Behind The Scenes Of Our Autumn Collection

We launched our photoshoot with model Candace Huffine and Dutch model, Iris Van Berne, in the centre of Amsterdam, the home of chic urban fashion. We styled them in bold prints, rich hues, various boots and a mix of faux suede and faux leather. Our goal was to capture the essence of the city girl, while reinventing a rebel look.

On the second day of our shoot, we chose a houseboat along one of Amsterdam’s many canals as our first backdrop, before heading to the Eye Film Institute. There, we sought to take inspiration from the polished, working girl vibe: think faux fur and shearling trims, lush faux suede and long jackets.

Finally, we headed to the Schoolmeester paper mill, located in the countryside. It’s here that we chose to showcase our lush layers and cosy fabrics. Candace and Iris were styled in tartan tops, lightweight gilets, various jackets and trousers to really capture the essence of autumn.
