A/W 15 : ACCESSORIES EDIT

 photo accessories edit_zpsd7lbdydh.jpg

Dressing for Winter in Scotland (and everywhere else in the Northern hemisphere this time of year) is about layering and accessorising. It pays to be prepared, which means not leaving the house without the follwing three things - a hat, a scarf and a pair of gloves. So take a look at our selection of accessories to find your perfect Winter warmers...

Beanies are essential for those windy days when you need to keep your hair in check and protect your ears from the cold! If you like to wrap up for brisk wintery walks to and from work, or taking the dogs out for a run in the park, get yourself in some stylish headgear to keep the brain freeze at bay…

If you’re looking for something more unusual why not go for a snood or a bib. Some of our hand knitted styles are a bit more exciting than just your average scarf – they’re all knitted in Scotland to the highest quality using a cashmere/merino blend yarn. Light in weight and easy to throw into your handbag, these simple accessories not only layer beautifully under your winter coat, but can also be worn as statement knitwear pieces to compliment any outfit.

BEHIND THE SCENES : A/W 15 Photo Shoot

 photo BTS_zpstv1yvbip.jpg

This Autumn/Winter we took our photo shoot on location to the Biscuit Factory in Leith. This building has been converted into a multi-purpose arts hub. The stunning old factory boasts some gorgeous crumbling brick walls, giant panelled windows, tiled walls, peeling paint and all sorts of photogenic nooks and crannies. It’s a beautiful space that is flooded with natural light through its large windows and skylights.

 photo BTS4_zpsmhhh8nrq.jpgProbably the coolest location in Edinburgh right now, it has already been featured in several fashion shoots, videos and played host to an NBC talk show during the Edinburgh Fringe. We’ve been told there are even plans to convert the roof space into a garden with a gin bar and yoga centre.

 photo BTS3_zps24lcdiys.jpgThis season we enlisted the help of young photographer, Nuala Swan. She works mainly on 35mm film so her photos have a bold and brave clarity. She has a great eye and talent for the kind of photography we love. (Take a gander at her portfolio below to see more of her work…)

 photo BTS7_zpsodt4y9tw.jpgHair and Make-Up artist, Molly Sheridan, and up and coming Glaswegian model, Linda Margaret Young, had both worked with Nuala before. So we were lucky to have a great team dynamic on the shoot which hugely contributed to it's success - a relaxed atmosphere and good company are key to a good creative environment.

 photo BTS10_zpsgfdvud24.jpgWorking with this style of photography was challenging in an age of digital, where you're used to instantly checking and analysing your work as you go – waiting for the film to be developed was nerve-wracking but very exciting!

 photo BTS11_zpszeuw3xqt.jpgWe want to thank the whole team for all their hard work on the two day shoot, you did a fantastic job and we're delighted with the new campaign. We feel this shoot has really captured the essence of Cameron taylor*style – All we want is to create desirable, practical and contemporary cashmere that you'll love.

Thanks again,

Lisa & Charlotte
