Summer is a flurry of activity for Porta Romana, we adore hosting the sale in the fields next to Head Office, finalizing the designs of our new collection and our favourite event of all – the New Collection shoot with Stylist, Arabella Mcnie and Photographer, Chris Everard.
This year the shoot took place in Dalston, East London, in an industrial warehouse location that oozes character and natural charm, there is even an untouched Victorian street running through the middle! The space is complimented by a number of wonderfully textured walls which have naturally dilapidated over the past hundred or so years, which suited our vision for the shoot perfectly.
Hints of pink, earthy tones and beautiful textures all play a strong roll in the collection. We wanted to push the boundaries further this year so split the entire studio in two to devote half the space to a film crew, the set up crew hurrying between the two sets with mirrors, lamps and props – quite the feat!
Until we launch the new collection, we hope you enjoyed these behind the scene snaps…
