For those of you who have read galerie de aims for a while now will know that part of what I wanted to do with my website was to use it to give independent brands and smaller brands an opportunity to give them a platform to discuss their collections old or new! So that being said, I spoke to Adam and Neve about their new collection all about… SPACE!
Here is what the two designers had to say…
What was your inspiration for your new collection?
‘Both of us love tie-dye and it is definitely on trend at the moment. We love the bleach tie-dye that ‘Future Self’ released during lockdown and fell in love with the process when making our graduation hoodies. The lobster design came about because Niamh wanted a lobster t-shirt and could not find one she liked. Even though the collection was space themed, we couldn’t leave him out and the world’s first lobster astronaut was born!
Why did you choose the theme of ‘Space’ for this collection?
‘The Friendly Alien’ t-shirt was one of the first designs we created way back in November 2019. The space theme came instinctively and we both had a number of ideas on creative and fun concepts that could become part of the collection….and who doesn’t love space!
We opted for a smaller release compared to our first grocers collection as we wanted to ensure every item is the highest possible quality and uniquely perfect.
What are your favourite pieces in the new collection?
Adam: This is such a tricky question as they all feel like our children! In our last article I mentioned a particular item from this collection as my all time favourite and that is our embroidered space hoodie. I wear mine almost every day and it is such a unique, comfortable and high quality product that I hope our customers will love as much as I do. It is rare for such a large design to be embroidered and it really is a stand out piece in my opinion.
Niamh: In reality this whole collection is exciting for me because it’s the collection that we really started experimenting with more colourful clothing which is something I’m really into because I love a bright and colourful style. I would have to say that the ‘lobsters in space’ t-shirt is my favourite as it was something I designed specifically to fit with a t-shirt I dreamed about owning. It’s one of those pieces that is so versatile and can be worn all year round and I am a huge believer in wearing pieces again and again and again!
Are you excited about the launch of the new products? & What can you reveal about future launches?
We cannot wait to share this collection with the world and for our customers to get their hands on the products we have spent a long time working on. As for future launches, we have so many ideas and don’t want to give too much away.
However, what we can say is that we will be introducing some hand-made items, branching out into other areas of the fashion industry and are beginning to change the way we produce our products to help grow and expand our company to enable even more creativity for our designs.
‘Our next release is definitely one you don’t want to miss!’
