Dear Rockmantic People,
So now, you can grab your favorite rock 'n roll piece here or you can buy as a gift for your Men or you can wear it as a unisex style, like I do ! :-)
At the same time of the Mens jewelry line launch in my flagshipstore, online and in selected stores, I have the pleasure to host Roamers and Seekers, a New amazing pop up store of Menswear collection made in Britain.
Roamers & Seekers is a Bristol-based menswear label founded by Amanda Goss, former Superdry design manager, after working in the fashion industry for 20 years.
I had the honour and the pleasure to meet Amanda and interview her, while she came to visit her pop up store at Maiden-Art boutique, so you can read her story and her amazing ideas here.
Maristella: First of all Amanda, I would like to say thank you for being here and for showing Roamers and Seekers at Maiden-Art Boutique.
So tell me a little bit of your story and when & why did you start Roamers and Seekers collections? Where did you study and which is your background?
Amanda: Thank you Maristella, It's a great pleasure for me too.
So, about my story, I studied fashion design at The London college of Fashion.
I have worked as designer and head of design for many UK brands.
Before starting my own brand I worked for one of the biggest UK brands, in the early days, Superdry as the Design Manager, building the creative team that made the brand a huge success story worldwide.
M: How would you describe your style?
A: The brands style is very clean, and minimal features so it is easy to wear and can be taken from every day urban to outdoors style, unsung elements together. I work with some of the best factories in China to develop quality menswear that is stylish at an affordable price.
M: Would you like to design collections for an important brand? if so which one?
A: Oh thats quite difficult, I would say not so much a brand but designer. I love the Japanese brands and worked for Yohji Yamamoto, in the London head office and went to see the shows in Paris as one of my first jobs after University. Maybe work as part of a collaboration would be cool, bringing the clean lines to another brand, not sure who though. Maybe an idea to think about, but would love to work with a shoe brand to collaborate ideas.
M: Any celebrities wearing your designs?
A: We have a few and more to come, musicians seem to like the clothes, Pete Josef, Roni Size, Lumineers and quite a few DJ,s also wearing the clothes.
M: Where do you sell your collections mostly?
A: UK in small cool boutique stores and some online stores in UK and USA, we are going at a steady pace each year to find some of the best places to stock the brand.
M: How do you see your business in future?
A: To grow the brand into new territories each season and to move the brand into new areas, accessories, collaborations with other brands. looking at going into Denim and we launch a womens line for SS17 so that will be amazing.
And I'm sure the Womenswear collection will be amazing too!
