Keep Watch Pantsuit available soon on www.veryexclusive.co.uk
Keepsake has definitely been on my radar for a while so I am so excited to be talking about this brand today. An Australian brand with directional silhouettes and classic fabrics and colours, Keepsake designs have the perfect mix of delicate femininity and bang on-trend styling. The brand is also famous for its exclusive prints, premium fabrics and signature silhouettes that updates classic styles. And the most exciting news is that it has just become available in the UK through Very Exclusive!
A Little Bit on VeryExclusive.co.uk
Some people might not have heard about Very Exclusive yet so I thought it might be useful to provide a little information about them as well.
Very Exclusive is a new accessible luxury online retailer operated by online giant Shop Direct (also the creators of Very.co.uk). Headed by Sarah Curran MBE, the site is set to shake up the luxury market with over 150 brands already signed up to the site. What I love the most about the site is that they are bringing luxury within the reaches of all of us with a credit offer which allows shoppers to spread the cost of their purchases across three monthly payments (interest free!!!). How amazing is that!
Behind the Scenes
With such a clean cut playsuit to shoot with, I wanted to make sure that the setting complimented the ivory. There are so many white pillared buildings around London, but it became very clear that I had shot in most of the usual suspects already (e.g. Royal Exchange, South Kensington, etc). It was Alice’s suggestion to shoot at UCL, her former university campus. Not to fuel the London University rivalry, but as a LSE graduate, I did have a slight issue with shooting in another London uni’s campus. However, as much as it pains me to say this, UCL definitely has a better campus than LSE. It is one of the few London universities where there is an actual campus with historical buildings and as these images show, the Main Building, designed by William Wilkins (the architect for the National Gallery) is a breathtaking London landmark that every London student should visit.
