Smalltalk ─ November 2013 MAMAMA
Smalltalk mit Reynald, Charles und Jean von MAMAMA aus Paris, Frankreich.
Please introduce yourself…
We are Charles, Reynald and Jean, we grew up in south of France, travelled quite enough for now living and working in Paris. We created MAMAMA together in December 2012.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Besides the brand, Charles works on an online magazine which is Sixand5, we are constantly facing new brands and artists. That’s how we find the people we want to collaborate with.
Do you work alone or do you collaborate with others? Any collaborations planned?
Our moto is the collaboration! For each piece of the collections, we try to work with a different artist, that’s what is motivating for us. At this point we teamed-up with about 30 different artists, but lots of these collaborations are to be released. Our goal is to create more and more capsule collections between the seasonal ones with specific artists or with other brands. The next one is with a cool French music label named Stellar Kinematics.
How important is music while working on new stuff?
As we’re working, music is constantly playing, that keeps us awake during our late hours. We mainly listen at French hip hop from the 90’s, House and IDM, (Aphex Twin)
What music is playing right now?
