We caught up with Manchesters latest street wear brand Gramm Clothing,
heres what they had to say:
What can we expect From Gramm? Give us some info on whats going to be in
ALOT, we’ve been working really hard behind the scenes over here at Gramm for a while now , The range is going to showcase a few things that we like and hopefully other people will, were basically trying to get all the mad creative stuff out of our heads onto clothes, pretty ‘trippy’ things and generally trying to break away from the norm of todays society.
When did you start thinking up the ideas for this collection? How long has
The ideas we’ve had we’ve had some for weeks some for years, were perfectionists and if something doesnt look right or feel right we’ll change it we’ll never throw a design away because at some point we thought it was ‘the next best thing’ times change and so does the scene so you never know when we might use a design that we made on paint at the age of 13.
When you design your clothes do you do this with consumers in mind or was
it completely for yourself?
When designing no, i dont think any real designer should. You should always be yourself and set your own trends.
What new Brands are you heavily into at the moment? Which has had the most
impact upon your own Style of clothing?
Really liking the stuff being done by Delic Slump,Kingdom Clothing and Manna Clothing, Manna have really put a spotlight on Manchester which is good because theirs alot of good stuff coming out of Manchester that needs to recognised and Delic Slump from London just are totally not conforming and making their own rules and generally dont give a F____ !! Theres also alot of brands we dont like, but we’ll leave that for another time
Where do you wanna be and what do you wanna be doing this time next year?
Ideally? In space playing super smash brothers on a platinum nintendo 64, realistically have our own shop and just be ‘nice’ Ha
Its great to see a new brand starting there first range with something
other than just a few standard printed t shirts.. where did you get the
idea for the coach jackets with Leopard fleece lining?
The infamous coach jacket ha!, we ended up naming it ‘The Attenborough’ after the man himself David Attenborough purely after being up way to late at night brainstorming ideas and not wanting to conform to this whole ‘safari’ thing,the jackets were just an idea we thought would be good because its not something you see everyday it gives people another option rather than a parker or trench coat for the winter, but we had to make it our own straight away and i think we did that by choosing the lining we did, it makes a statement but its not in your face.
You’re a manchester based label. What’s the mens fashion scene like there?
The fashion scene in general in Manchester is really diverse just walking through the city centre you see all sorts, personally we’ve seen a change in fashion these days everyone no matter who you are or what budget you live on is trying to dress smarter everyones trying to be a bit more edgey and bit more rebellious some people pull it off some dont its nice to watch though ha!
Apart from running the label, how else do you guys spend your time? Any
crazy hobbies or hidden talents?
One of us tattoo’s full time and the other spends his time being a cosmic cowboy trying to find the mothership.
And last but not least… any chance we can be the first to get our hands on
one these coach jackets?
HA, yeah im sure we could sort you guys out !!
