Harry Stedman X Bucket & Spades: Liverpool
At the start of this year we met up with our friend and lifestyle blogger, Matthew Pike from Bucket & Spades. As well as a catch up, we took to the wintery streets of Liverpool for a shoot in some items from our AW 15 collection. See the full repost below and check out more great posts on the Buckets & Spades Blog here.
One of the best things about social media is the friends we make, and the relationships that come out of it. I met the gang from Harry Stedman just over a year ago - does anyone remember when they visited us up in Blackpool? - and since then we've kept in touch, and become pretty decent buddies.
What started as a working relationship has turned into pints down the local pub, working on small projects, and visiting one of the original cities that the brand takes its main inspiration from: Liverpool.
The Harry Stedman brand is based on, and inspired by a working class hero; a traveller, military hand, labourer and true inspiration - and was created by his son + grandson, Phil + Rick. We visited Harry's hometown of Liverpool (Harry now happily retired in my hometown of Blackpool, Lancashire), to explore some of the places where Harry may have visited as a kid.
The AW15 collection takes inspiration from Harry's time spent at the dockyards of the UK, and his time spent working in New York; with Ivy League-influenced varsity jackets + sweats, hard-wearing Harrington, deck jackets + smocks, work shirts, and heavy jersey layers.
Location - Liverpool Met Cathedral, Pen Factory, 92Degrees + Crosby Beach.
