We were lucky enough to shoot the new lookbook at the Oxford Playhouse, just round the corner from The Clarendon Shopping Centre. The Oxford Playhouse has showcased a wide range of performances and is home to a new colourful and vibrant auditorium making it the perfect setting. Our wonderful backdrop you may recognise if you saw A Tale of Two Cities – A Touring Consortium Theatre Company and Royal & Derngate Northampton co-production.

The AW16 lookbook covers the key trends and the must have pieces that are in our stores right now. The 90’s is a huge influence on this year’s autumn/ winter wardrobe and our photo shoot echoed this with features from velvet, ripped jeans and lots of metallics. A flashback feature piece and an absolute essential for your wardrobe is the bomber jacket; our model Lindsay rocked this reversible bomber jacket from Zara – we love how quickly you can change your look by simply reversing! Take these outfits from day to night with sparklers from Swarovski and Goldsmiths adding a hint of extra glam to these on trend pieces.
