Keep­ing an eye out for trends while tak­ing a laid-back ap­proach brings ef­fort­less style

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | GOING OUT - Emma Fraser

This week we met Jamie Mann in Dublin city cen­tre. Jamie has worked in fash­ion re­tail for years and takes a very laid-back ap­proach to his per­sonal style. Not tak­ing your­self too se­ri­ously can cre­ate a great ef­fort­less look.

Tell us about your out­fit?

I got my jacket and top from Cop­son, their stuff is sick. I’m really into emerg­ing street-wear brands. My white jeans are from Top­shop. My run­ners are Gosha Rubchin­skiy, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair in Copen­hagen – they’re a new street-wear brand at the fore­front of the Russian fash­ion in­dus­try.

How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style?

I don’t really have a per­sonal style to be hon­est with you. I have never really thought of it like that. I just wear things I like, no point over­think­ing clothes. I am in­ter­ested in fash­ion so when­ever I see a good drop I’ll try to get a piece from it.

What are you look­ing for­ward to over the next few months?

Dublin is such a creative hub at the mo­ment, it’s hard to choose. Beat­yard was my only solid plan to date and it was deadly. I sup­pose I’ll take the rest as it comes and see what hap­pens for the rest of the sum­mer.

With re­gards to fash­ion, I am look­ing for­ward to see­ing what prod­uct de­sign­ers and stores will roll out for au­tumn/win­ter 16.

Hope­fully Cop­son will re­lease a new line, I’ll be pretty ea­ger to get my hands on some of that. Oth­er­wise, like I said, I don’t have any plans but some things will fall into place. We’ll see what hap­pens. Pho­to­graphs: Katie McLaugh­lin Robin­son
