A Basque Hideaway

Introducing our latest collection for Fall Winter 2020. The campaign was shot in a countryside oasis – a visual story of a winter’s morning in the north of Spain. Capturing the innocent and idyllic moments of a staycation amongst the Basque region, Ksusha Puntus has been photographed in the autumnal light by Dennis Swiatkowski, using a mix of analogue film and digital.

This season, we continue to create elevated wardrobe staples in a range of soft fabrics and versatile prints to suit all moods. Warm muted tones and earthy browns mixed with subtle florals and animal prints set the foundations for this collection – with oversized knitwear for layering and classic denim complimenting each piece.

This collection celebrates femininity, whilst creating ultimate comfort and effortless style pieces for the Fall Winter season.

Organise a dedicated workspace
“Once I set myself up for work , I like to make sure my surroundings feel calming and light. I usually light a candle, organise my notepad and set-out my tasks for the day and just make my table feel as if it were my desk at work – in the most aesthetically pleasing way. It definitely helps me feel be more productive”.
Lena - Europe Brand Manager

Make the effort to get dressed
“It sounds very simple but as much as I want to stay in my pj’s, getting dressed in the morning even if it’s into loungewear, really makes a difference with feeling productive! You just feel more accomplished and have a proactive approach towards things”
Alexa - PR and Communications

Make sure to set aside a break
“Taking regular breaks helps me to stay focused throughout the day. At the moment I’ve been taking online yoga classes or doing a quick hiit workout to change awareness of my body and mind. Not only does this give me energy but it makes doing work more achievable and manageable”
Doris - E-commerce Manager

Set yourself a schedule
“It’s really important for me to set a schedule or routine, so that I hold myself accountable. I find that by doing this means I’m less distracted and feel more focused on completing tasks. I love starting my work morning with my tea ritual – taking a moment to myself in the garden and creating the right positive mindset for the day”
Camille -Business Analyst

Check in with your team
“I find it useful and encouraging to check in with my team regularly. Being able to bounce ideas off one another and keeping each other focused during this difficult time has made a huge difference whilst working from home. Whether it’s to discuss our tasks for the day or just to share a positive affirmation – it’s makes WFH for the foreseeable future so much more bearable”
Esteffi - Digital Creative Manager
