What kind of country blog would this be if we didn’t talk about one of the most iconic country brands there is?
I have been lucky enough to receive two gorgeous products from their lovely PR company to shoot and feature on It’s A Country Life.
The Kensington Down Jacket in Navy and the Lyndon II Fleece Gillet in Aubergine.
This is my first shoot and I was super nervous but thanks two of my amazing friends I really enjoyed myself, and am pleased with the outcome – I hope you like it too.
I have been a fan of Schoffel for a few years now ever since I was introduced to the brand on a crisp autumnal morning out foot following; a good friend of mine turned up sporting the iconic fleece. I loved the look of it then but it wasn’t until I recently bought one myself that I realised what all the fuss was about!
Here I am wearing my own Lyndon II Fleece Gillet in Ruby a size 10.
This Gillet is perfect for layering, I love wearing mine over a shirt or as a mid layer on colder mornings under my big tweed jacket for additional warmth!
One that has been on my wish list after seeing at this years Burghley Horse Trials back in September is the Kensington Down Jacket and when I received the navy (my would of been colour of choice!) I was over the moon!
Excited didn't quite cut it.
The jacket is amazing - but there are a few things I REALLY love about it.
The cosy merino ribbed cuffs and neck of the jacket are my favourite. I am love to wear winter jumpers or long sleeve tops down over my wrist for that extra comfort feel and Schoffel are one step ahead of me.
My little mascot Lola helps me best show this off. (She wouldn't leave us alone - photoshoots are all to exciting!)
I love the finer details of this products like the leather trim - the pockets are fleece lined too!
I love that the faux fur trim hood is detachable and the colours go so nicely together.
This really is the perfect stylish winter jacket for Winter walks across the fields and through the woods AND for relaxing weekends roaming the shops for Christmas treats.
You can order yours here www.schoffel.co.uk for £299.95
See below for the rest of the photoshoot images; featuring the Lyndon II Fleece Gillet in Aubergine!
these retail at £129.95.
Again, this brand pay close attention and take time to focus on the finer details which are definitely not missed. It all adds to the quality and uniqueness of the products.
Who are Schoffel??
Little bit of history about Schoffel - the brand we now all know and love was founded in 1804 in Germany and has over the last SEVEN generations continued to grow and prosper year on year into the stylish and practical products on the market today.
What really kicked things off for the brand was their Ptarmigan shooting coat. One I don’t think the other half would mind putting to the test this season that is for sure!
Schoffel offers an amazing range of products now and the new autumn collection is stunning!
I am super excited to see what they have in store for Spring – keep posted for news and sneak peaks!
One thing you will most definitely see making a regular appearance over my Instagram this shooting season will be an array of irresistible socks from this seasons collection!
I am a nightmare for cold toes – always moaning when out on the downs with the winter frost around me or on those 5 am with the hunt when I can't feel my toes in my boots!!
I think I have found the answer – which will be a welcome relief to the team I am sure!
This is my favourite design; the Schöffel Stitch Sock - Mink at £49.95!
I think that wraps up this latest post. I'm off out to give my youngster a makeover!
If you have any Schoffel products from this season's collection I would love to hear from you, drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much for reading and I really hope you liked the images, it is something I had never done before and was pretty nervous about but with my two lovely friends/photographers we had such a lovely day full of laughing and joking - that's most important.
So thanks to you both.
