BEHIND THE SCENES AW18

By now you’ll have seen our amazing new Autumn collection, but have you ever wanted to see behind the scenes on the shoot? View our latest behind the scenes video plus the inspiration behind the collection, our model's stories and style tips for the season. 

Stylist's photoshoot tips: Take risks with styling, don’t play it too safe. Be organised with the collection and the order in which to shoot but be prepared to change things around once in the flow...

Styling Tips

The focus this season is to layer up. Start with a Superfine Roll Neck next to the skin, adding a Chunky V Neck Sweater and finishing with a lightweight cashmere jacket.

Ladies might layer our cashmere leggings under a midi skirt, finishing Hepburn style; cashmere socks and ankle boots. The accessories this season pay tribute to a “heritage climber” theme, coupled with sporty jackets and modern colours - a sumptuous athleisure look in luxe cashmere.

The Models

We choose models who have both great energy and personality which matches N. Peal's sense of humour and creativity.

Conrad is from Whitby, North Yorkshire. He lives on a long boat which is currently moored in London. Aoibhinn is Irish and new to the modelling world, she was chosen as her serenity compliments Conrad’s cheekiness.

Crystal is Trinidadian, cool and vivacious, she joined the cast at the very last minute. With three models, there became a sense of sinuosity, reflecting the fluidity of the AW18 collection.

OUR INSPIRATION

We took inspiration from iconic postcard images from 1920s skiers who would embrace these fascinating and adventurous pursuits in glorious Alpine scenery. 

It’s a season for the intrepid pursuit of the outdoors, embracing the elements with elegance, softness, warmth and wisdom and with a freedom of movement and resolute charm.

"The collection was so much fun to put together, we hope you enjoy it half as much as we enjoyed making it. The wonderful winter colours, channelling the spirit of 1920s adventurers."
