This festive time is one for reflection, to look back on the past year and celebrate all we have. A festive time to enjoy nature with family and friends and to have fun dressing the part and doing it in a sustainable and stylish way, buy less but better. The shoot took place on Valentia Island off the southwest coast of the Kingdom, gifting us with both the most dramatic, rugged scenery and rustic backdrops and the most beautiful low winter light. This accompanied some of the must-have garments of this season, from long lasting woollens, to embroidered dresses and hard-wearing trouser suits – all to keep us cosy, warm yet undeniably cool this season.
