What the Boys Wore: Little Green Radicals | AW17
Autumn has been wondrous this year and it's a season I usually take for granted, especially pre-kids. We've picked (but still not carved) pumpkins, we've had many walks amongst the fallen leaves and drunk hot chocolates by the bucketful (though this seems to be the case no matter what the season). The best part is most of the time, we've been able to do all the outdoorsy stuff without being too cold or wet. The sunrises and sunsets are stunningly beautiful and I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to such a blissful season.
We've worked with Little Green Radicals before and have always been huge advocates of their range and the fairtrade values they stand for, so when they asked me if we would like to try out their Autumn/Winter range, I set myself the task of shooting a little video alongside the photos to hopefully showcase how gorgeous the clothes are in movement as well as still (and because, fun!).
I love filming but I also know I have alot of work to put in before I'm as happy with the outcome as I'm finally becoming with photography. There's something unforgettable about moving images of the boys, knowing they'll be so much bigger before we know it and it's something I'm constantly working to improve at capturing.
We've had an awesome few weeks of days out, Halloween events and gearing up for the fireworks and Jesse's midnight peacocks have been great with nothing underneath for this milder weather we've been experiencing and will be perfect with an outfit underneath for the crisper days to come; it's fleece-lined but not puffy or bulky, meaning he's still able to potter about quite comfortably. The feet and hands can be tucked over for extra warmth too (bonfire night perfect)!
Archie's midnight peacocks top is also lined for extra warmth and both the top and golden cord bottoms are soft and comfortable, something desperately necessary for a boy who has no ability to remain still for even half a second. I'm blown away by the AW17 range and in love with the vibrant shades; I always find LGR prints are difficult to be mistaken for any other brand.
I had so much fun taking these shots and putting the video together and I can't wait to share our favourite AW fashion with you over the next few months, it's something I've naturally found myself drawn towards and feels like a natural route to take, considering my Fashion Friday posts were among my first ever written for Hello Archie.
PS. Flood me with your coat and shoe recommendations for Winter as I'm sure we're really going to be needing them and I'm rubbish with finding good ones!
