Begg & Co AW19 Collection – Inspired by & captured in Glasgow, Scotland
This season, our design team worked with the concept ‘Night on my Mind’ to create a collection that captures the raw, unpolished, urban side of Glasgow that lots of tourists and locals experience every year when they visit. Glasgow is our ‘big smoke’, full of culture, art, history, architecture, music and literature, and one of those rare places where strangers smile and chat with one another. It’s urban, gritty, green, and modern; but full of rich history.
Introducing City Sunset, Glasgow 2019
Shot by fashion photographer Josh Hight in Glasgow, we managed to capture the luminescent moments of the city’s sundown. Our City Sunset collection celebrates the nuance of colours that run through Glasgow at dusk. Neon lights, inky night skies and the arrival of the moon are some of the entities that helped inspire the designs of this capsule.
City Sunset was captured around Glasgow’s famous Harbourside, on the River Clyde. Traditionally, a lot of our design inspiration at Begg & Co comes from Scotland’s natural landscapes that surround us; running hills and greenery. For Night on My Mind, AW19, our design team wanted to celebrate the underappreciated beauty of Glasgow’s harsh architecture, ornamental iron work and heritage that it’s famous for, and often gets un-noticed.
Washed and tumbled cashmere, bright seamless pinks and grid line checks are just some of what makes up City Sunset. Listen to our Introducing Glasgow playlist as you wander through our next capsule of Night on my Mind.
