So what is a fashion lookbook?


A fashion lookbook is a collection of photographs showcasing this seasons clothes. the lookbook is usually designed to reflect the identity of the brand.


‘Meeting the makers’,  is at the root of this Brand. They work with some of the finest producers in this country and abroad, they even work with the only surviving manufacturer of heavy-duty, hand-made leather boots in the Peak District. The lookbook is full of characterful craftsman and what a treat it is to actually see the people who are making the clothes, shoes and hats.

The work wear feel of the brand extends into the feel of the lookbook not just by it’s design but use of uncoated stock. The stock is called Cocoon Offset and is a board made from 100% genuine de-inked post consumer waste. It is sometimes difficult to achieve an uncoated look and feel when printing digitally but the ink coverage and this particular stock have combined to produce something which is unquestionably uncoated in look and feel.  A 300gsm offset was used for the cover and a 160gsm offset for the text pages.
