Behind the scenes: spring/summer ’11

Here’s a sneak peek of our spring/summer ’11 catalogue photo shoot which took place last week in Notting Hill.  Emma Woolley, Head of Communications and Marketing, blogged from the shoot:

 Last week saw us re-creating a hot English summer’s day on location for our spring/summer catalogue shoot. It took a lot of imagination and a huge amount of talent and lighting by our lovely photographer, Sarah Maingot and her superstar digital partner in crime to achieve. But together we managed to layer up against the cold and snow to bring a summer’s day to Notting Hill in deepest, darkest December.

  There are some new additions to the Smythson family in the catalogue including Willow the tortoise, who is surprisingly speedy and comes to you when you call his name, and Fred the dachshund.

The spring catalogue will be out at the end of February and we look forward to hearing what you think … for now here is a taster of the behind the scenes action…

    Can you tell me where did you get that gorgeous desk in the photo shoot image above? I’m looking for something exactly like that!

    Hi Carrie,
    The glass dressing table we used in the shoot was from a props house, but you can find similar styles at Graham and Green, Valerie Wade and Selfridges have one in their furniture department…
    Hope this helps!

    Thank you so much for the reply above regarding the dressing table. Receiving your catalogs is always like a gift in itself because they are so beautiful and the photography so well done.
