Spartina 449 Video

Spartina 449 is one of the fastest growing companies in South Carolina & the U.S. Their line of handbags, jewelry, scarves and other accessories are all inspired by Daufuskie Island in SC. The brand has been featured in national magazines like People Stylewatch, US Weekly, Redbook Magazine, Inc. 500 & Forbes.

For their Fall / Winter Collection, Spartina 449 handpicked Lara Lill to model the new line of products, like their new “Quilted” handbag series. The Lills Design went behind the scenes on Daufuskie Island to capture the photo shoot and create a video for Spartina 449. See the video we created below:

We boarded the charming Haig Point Ferry at 6:30am, landed on historic Daufuskie Island (only 8 miles long and with only 250 residents) and spent the day bouncing to different beautiful locations.

The island is private, rustic and a perfect example of island living in the Carolinas. There isn’t a road or bridge connecting the island to the main land, so we traveled by golf cart from Haig Point to the beautiful fountain and enjoyed being lifted to other areas of the island, like the equestrian facility & beach, by an electric-run VW bus.

We had a great time exploring the island and enjoyed hearing some of the Daufuskie stories that inspire the Spartina 449 brand. For their Fall line they offered a handbag called “Mary Lavinia”, another “Stoddard Houndstooth”. Mary was a true person, who lived on Daufuskie in a house called Melrose Mansion with her stylish beau, Jon Stoddard. Each piece creatively showcases the island, it’s heritage & sophistication.
