Design & inspiration
Finding inspiration in Biarritz with Animal graphic designer, Rose Eads
Inspiration is all around us, a deep well of moments, colours, images and experiences. Our designers travel far and wide, absorbing different cultures and trends, preparing the groundwork for each new collection.
Following a recent research trip to Biarritz and beyond, we asked graphic designer Rose Eads to give us a glimpse into her sketchbook...
#1 Biarritz first impressions
“We headed down to the beach on the first night and the annual surf film festival was on.
When you are flying so high, you can see the night sky.”
#2 La Grande Plage
“The tide out, we explored the busy rock pools and open caves. You could walk all the way through. Looking a little closer to the ground, busy crabs were going about their day.
Shrimp darted around amongst the smallest fish.
The caves and rock pools were soon lost underwater, secrets again.”
#3 From the streets of San Sebastian
Inspiration is everywhere.
“Patterns, prints, textures. Absorbing the surroundings. Fresh eyes.”
“Lots of pine trees decorated the roads along with foreign flowers I did not recognise.
I bought the sweetest espadrilles from a lady who customised shoes. I got mine with laces.”
“Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.”
Time to explore, reflect, collect.
We can’t wait to see the influence of Rose’s latest trip on her designs.
