Model: @kateparfet

Drummer: @blondescarlet

Location: @astroeticstudios Los Angeles, California

The Range:

Welcome to the Classic Collection, a brand new range from Stitch & Hide evolving from a desire for sophistication. This collection raises the bar, using luxury leather of the highest quality. With a smoother grain and higher shine, the Classic Collection is set apart by the natural colour, interior candy stripe lining, gold hardware and finer details. These designs are hand-buffed, waxed and vegetable tanned using time honoured techniques of leather crafting.

The Shoot:

We sought to achieve a cleaner, minimal edge to our shoot, as we wanted it to reflect the difference that the Classic Collection has to offer. These products are all about class, bringing with them more wearable options in a range of settings, from restaurant to wedding to black tie and anything in between.

We wanted to compliment the sophistication of the Classic Collection styles by pairing them with simplistic surroundings and clothing.

We have always done outdoor or natural lighting shoots to bring out the textures and grain of our leather goods, though, this time it was all about the colour and shine. We went with a studio shoot to create something new for Stitch & Hide as a brand, to show our versatility and we love the way this turned out.

The Team:

For this launch, we worked with @nessta@maggie_davis two of our very talented creatives based in LA. We are opening our US company in the not too distant future and are building our creative team over there. Their photographic, lighting and editing skills are brilliant and we just love working with them!! @kateparfet is the stunner you see modelling the Classic Collection, what an amazing job she did. Last but not least, a special shout out to @blondescarlet for her drumming skillz.
