I’ve had this shoot idea for a while now, taking yoga pictures with ‘Quintessentially British’ items (think red phone box, post box etc), so I’ve been on the lookout for a red outfit to go with it. When I saw this matching red outfit at Legacy Sportswear I knew it would be perfect and I am really pleased they also liked my idea so all I had to do now was wait for it to arrive and find some red ‘props’ for the shoot.
When my new Legacy Sportswear outfit arrived it was an absolutely perfect pillar box red (you never can tell when looking online but the colour couldn’t have been better). I love the material this set is made from, it is lovely and thick and has a matte (rather than shiny) finish. It felt great and looked great (according to my photographer!). To go with my red outfit I’d also found the perfect matching shoes the previous day in a charity shop - sometimes everything just falls into place :)
So that was the first part of the picture sorted, now the hard part, finding a red phone box and post box that were still actually red. We headed off to a previous location my photographer had shot at a few years ago but when we arrived the phone box was more green with mould than red :(. We decided it wasn’t worth trying anything there so headed off to our next potential place. On the way between the two I saw a bit of red out the corner of my eye so shouted stop and we detoured down this side street where we found a pristine red phone box in a beautiful village setting :) :) :)
With the phone box done we next needed a post box. Another drive around but we couldn’t find a suitable one so headed home where we passed the local post office – thatched, whitewashed cottage with a traditional red post box outside = perfect
Thank you Legacy Sportswear for my stunning new outfit and the best bit is I have a discount code to share which gets you 10% some new gear for yourself – use CA10 at checkout :)
