We have a lot of talented graphic's designers here at Topman HQ ....let's kick it off with a little Q&A with socks/underwear designer Saskia Pomeroy:
PEN OR PENCIL? : Pen, direct, permanent and to the point.
DREAM SOCKS?: My dream socks are the ones my mum knitted me for winter time, the hotdog socks I did for Topman, and the Jungle foliage socks for Topman which are both instore now.
DREAM DESIGNER?: This is very difficult. Although I would literally kill for anything Céline right now ....
FAVOURITE DECADE? : Got to be eighties! I just love the models in the eighties. They were so much more natural than they are now. And high leg swimming costumes? Really? I'm really loving Kenzo bringing back some archive designs from the eighties this year. I think in terms of print design the eighties were really exciting for colourful, geometric unusual prints.
BEST PLACE FOR DINNER? : I LOVE going out for dinner. London is great for small places to go and get real quality food. Recently I went to a restaurant called Black Pig with White Pearls on Stoke Newington High St. It's spanish tapas. It was really really really good!
MUSIC? : Right now, I'm loving Jessie Ware
INFLUENCES?: My main influences are probably anybody who has the balls to put themselves out there are do something that they are really passionate about. The world is boring without people doing crazy things and changing the world for the better. I think change is a scary prospect for a lot of people but I don't want to settle for the same old stuff all the time.
