Behind The Scenes: Our seaside Shoot

Behind The Scenes: Our seaside Shoot

A few weeks ago we packed our bags (literally) and headed to Margate in Kent to shoot our summer campaign. Luckily for us, the sun was shining and the weather stayed on our side all day – which in Britain, in March, is a rarity!

Cambridge Satchel - Our Seaside Shoot

The bright colours in our new collection are all named after our favourite British seaside resorts and  we couldn’t think of a more fitting location for our shoot than Margate Sands, one of the original British seaside destinations. For anyone who visited the town five/ten years ago, Margate today is almost unrecognisable. In 2006, the town’s famous theme park Dreamland was closed and after locals started up a ‘Save Dreamland’ campaign, it reopened last year with a brand new and improved aesthetic. Dreamland aside, the town as a whole feels as though it’s had a new lease of life, with brand new shops and cafes opening around the town. It’s a lovely place to get away for the day; between the beach, the town and Dreamland – there’s so much to do!

We had a lot fun shooting this campaign – we hope the photos you see online and in store manage to get this across! We wanted to give you a round up of exactly what goes into making a CSC photoshoot happen and to give you a sneak peek of some of the behind the scenes photos and outtakes from our sunny day in Margate.
