On Location at Princelet Street

Sophie Hitchens Wednesday 10th November 2021

Four brilliant brands recently went on Location at Princelet Street, the seductive Georgian townhouse in Spitalfields. And it was the perfect time of year for this location gem to shine. With its abundance of rustic period features, Princelet Street is ideal for Autumnal inspired shoots.

We take a look at what makes Princelet Street special. We also see which companies recently chose Princelet Street to showcase their autumn and winter ranges.

What Makes Princelet Street a Special Location?

Princelet Street is one of our most characterful rustic Light Locations. Owned by long term and highly experienced location owner Robert Shackleton, it’s a unique and sought-after property.  Robert has kept his property largely unchanged (but completely habitable!). As a result, Princelet Street is a location jam-packed with period features and dripping with authentic charm.

In particular, the living room charms the eye of many stylists. With its beautiful panelling and fireplace, it whispers of days gone by.

On the Light Locations team, Sophie also adores the tongue and groove bathroom. And Chloe has fallen for the pretty walled courtyard, which links the house to a former pottery, which is also available for shoots.

On Location with Sahara 

Sahara is a ladies fashion brand known for creating clothing with a sense of adventure. Unique pieces inspired by world travels and produced with a compelling ethical responsibility.

Sahara seized the opportunity to make the most of the understated drama at Princelet Street for their new Autumn range.

On Location With Olivier London

Another fashion brand who recently chose to utilise the autumnal appeal of Princelet Street is Olivier London.

This nostalgic childrenswear brand offers timeless style and a belief in slow fashion. And these adorable images showcase their charming collection of Baby Girl and Cashmere Collections.

Not just for Fashion Fans

Princelet Street is clearly a gem for fashion brands. However, its charms are limitless, as illustrated with these beautiful images from furniture company Clarke and Clarke.

Clarke and Clarke’s new vintage collection of prints and embroideries offer a handsome set of 4 distinct colour stories. And Princelet Street proved the perfect setting for this striking collection of interior upholstery.  

For an insight into what takes place on a shoot day,  take a look at the beautiful behind the scenes video from Clarke & Clarke. 

The Dream Team on Location

Diana Civil and Russell Sadur, our photographic dream team are great fans of Princelet street. Their most recent shoot for Carpetright is a beautiful example of how Princelet Street captivates and intrigues, with its period character and enchanting atmosphere.
