Creating our exclusive Spring Campaign

Alongside the launch of our brand new website, we're also very proud to present the first seasonal photoshoot at The Clarendon Shopping Centre. Showcasing the very best new looks and style trends available at our shops, this shoot takes inspiration from the stunning bolds, prints and co-ords that feature in new collections at stores such as French Connection and Zara - and puts Oxford's iconic architecture front and centre.

Clarendon Shopping Centre Oxford

The Location:

Our Spring Look Book was shot at Oxford's historic Randolph Hotel, just a stone's throw from The Clarendon Centre and opposite the world famous Ashmolean Museum. The Macdonald Randolph Hotel is the leading 5-star hotel in Oxford and part of The Macdonald Hotels' Signature Collection, offering luxurious accommodation, award-winning food and a sensuous spa haven in the heart of this world-famous university city.

Located in Oxford's city centre, the Randolph Hotel is a landmark building with elegance and charm aplenty. The hotel has played host to prime ministers and presidents, and the renowned Morse Bar is instantly recognisable as the watering hole of Colin Dexter's world-famous detective, Inspector Morse. Beautiful architecture and historic setting help to make The Randolph Hotel an Oxford Institution. All in all, the perfect location for our brand new photo-shoot!

The Model:

Our model, Victoria, is captured in the day lounge with light streaming in on a vivid Spring morning, with glimpses of Oxford's streets and buildings visible in the background. In other shots, the grandeur and classical lines of the Presidential Suite are offset by modern, youthful trends and bang up to date 2015 style.

The Look:

This season is a veritable hotch-potch of design ideas - think print clashes, bold textures and block colours - then team them with pastels, neutrals and dainty jewellery! Time to throw away the rule book and head for Spring.

This is one of our hero images for Spring. Victoria rocks the print clash trend (top: French Connection, shorts: ZARA), in a look that would be great for a Sunday chilling at home. We just love the vintage Gramaphone necklace detail (from Ansari). Add to this look with a pair of Converse from Office (, then grab the papers and hit the coffee shops!

In this atmospheric shot, Victoria models the stunning 'soft spray' mini dress from French Connection, with a bold clutch from Ansari. The clashing colours of the dress are key for Spring - go wild and team this look with a pair of lime green slingback heels from Office (see Look Book for more photos).
