AW20 - The Lockdown Series

25th August 2020 by

Introducing our new and exciting Autumn Winter Campaign, with a little help from our friends.


Lockdown Photoshoot

The anticipation was building back in March, as we set to embark on Drummond Castle for our AW20 photoshoot. Our office in Oakham was a flurry of excitement, and it was all hands-on deck as preparation was underway to shoot our stunning new collection in beautiful Perthshire. Suddenly everything came crashing down, the realisation that driving eight staff and eight models up to Scotland for four days for a photoshoot was looking risky and highly unlikely.

Wondering how on earth we were going to promote any of our new collection with no imagery, we put our creative heads together and came up with a plan B. The Schoffel Country community is close knit, and we are proud to be a part of the countryside clan. We realised that in time of need, we needed to rely on our friends for a favour and so we are proud to introduce our #friendsofschoffel photoshoot. We carefully picked out some outfits and sent them off to our friends to shoot during the lockdown period. We wanted individuality, personality and for our chosen friends and influencers to tell their lockdown story, gaining some fantastic images of our new collection in each of their specific and unique locations.

Take a look at what they came up with, we’d love to know what you think!
