Here are the first images of Jacket 1. Nearly.
The model is my old boss Chris Blakeston, Bristol resident, Cornwall surfer, cyclist, father, husband, board director and outdoors nut. He has the best beard and crows feet. He's a lovely lovely bloke, you can tell by the crow's feet - he's a smiler. He also grows big round courgettes and gives them away.
The shoot in and around Bristol, to demonstrate the jacket's applicability to differing environments, from sea, wind, forest and rain (we didn't get rain, it was 28c) to city centre art gallery, multi-storey car park and urban sunset.
You can sprint past a shadowy art gallery exterior in a FRAHM jacket.
Why aren't we showing the jacket properly? Honestly, we're too knackered to launch. We're taking a couple of weeks off to be curious about rock pools in Cornwall. FRAHM was built for us to run, not to run us. This is how we built our company. Sorry to drag it out.
We'll come back fresh and launch in mid-August. Exciting.
Chris. Grizzled from surfing, life and stuff.
I wanted to capture the lurid neon cityscapes that I obsess about.
FRAHM has its first employee. Emmalou, my wife & partner of 24 years.
It’s a perfect fit, apart from our little rages.
We are honoured to work with a true legend on our new scarf range.
Enjoy a tour of the beautiful and inspiring Johnstons of Elgin, Scotland.
