Our Moment of Joy at The Whitby Hotel in New York City

For our holiday campaign this year, we kicked off the season at the beautiful Whitby Hotel in New York City. We decked the halls of the contemporary, colorful and well-curated Whitby Suite, a large, inviting space on the hotel’s top floor — the perfect backdrop for this season’s collection. The oversize living area, floor-to-ceiling windows, two king-size bedrooms, marble bathrooms and kitchen created a splendid setting for the festive elegance and classic heritage vision of our shoot. Our cast gathered at the fireplace to open their Brooks Brothers gifts perfectly presented in our signature navy gift boxes. Even Rhylee, our littlest cast member, was impressed with the surroundings.

The Whitby Hotel bar and restaurant were within reach all day, providing breakfast, lunch, dinner and even evening cocktails and an afternoon tea. Additional comforts included a stocked mini bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a record player with vinyl classics, creating a cheerful energy for our campaign that is undoubtedly reflected in each shot.   

Located in the heart of upper midtown Manhattan, the Whitby Hotel (at 56th Street and 5th Avenue) is a short walk to Central Park in the charming neighborhood of several iconic NYC landmarks, restaurants and galleries, including the Museum of Modern Art. 

Beyond its unmatched location, the interiors of the Whitby Hotel, designed by Kit Kemp, not only provided the quintessential backdrop to our shoot, but will spark joy for any guests with Kemp’s curated art selection, which is found throughout the hotel.

Occupying the entire top floor, the Whitby Suite penthouse is surrounded by two fully furnished terraces overlooking Central Park and downtown. The large private terraces, a rarity of space to find in Manhattan, served as the perfect outdoor setting to showcase our outerwear, backed by the best views of the city.
