A most excellent photographer

Claudia Legge photographs for the Cabbages & Roses AW16 campaign

As we proudly show off our new campaign shots, we thought we would introduce you to the talented Claudia Legge who photographed our AW16 campaign. 


As her website  describes:-  

Claudia shoots primarily in and under water. Aquatic photography is her passion and the cornerstone of her provocative style. 

She explains: “I am trying to expose the subtlety of movement using the way that light is refracted through water to create a tension between image and impression.’




We thought she was perfectly fitted to work with the contrast of light and darkness, heavy wool and light voile; cashmere and tweed - for our AW campaign. 


i-D Magazine cites that 'Claudia's work never fails to amaze' and she has been hailed by MTV as 'A young photographer taking the world by storm; one snap at a time’


 We are delighted to announce a 2 day exhibition at Sydney Street showcasing limited edition prints from the 20th - 21st  October - Cabbages & Roses will be hosting a party to celebrate on the evening of the 20th October. 

More details will follow on our social channels. 


Claudia has exhibited her photography in the UK, New York and Paris and has photographed all over the world.
