[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]At Quattro Rish we are utterly passionate about sneakers, styling them frequently with our work wardrobe through to the weekend. Always on the lookout for homegrown labels it was love at first sight when we came across the fun and bold designs of Rose Rankin – not only are they incredibly flattering on both the foot and ankle – they’re very feminine, super comfortable, beautifully crafted and on top of that stylish and cool!
Having been trainer obsessed from a young age Rose Rankin, who has previously worked in film, marketing and sales before retraining in footwear design at Central Saint Martins, spotted a niche in the market for a more luxurious type of trainer | sneaker that can be worn with tailored outfits and casual weekend denim.
This is our first full season with Rose Rankin and so far each style of sneaker that we stock have proven to be very popular. We wanted to share with you more behind the brand that is Rose Rankin and ask Rose herself, the namesake and founder of this cool sneakers label, a few questions…[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image src=”3645″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][image src=”3646″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]What’s your fave style this SS16?
I am a big fan of Dots this season so probably the White Dot Coney and the Cheetah Simmy Mid Top.
What inspires you / where do you get your ideas from?
I find inspiration in everyday life – patterns from interiors, colour combinations I see in art, on people, in magazines etc. I also find patterns and colours in nature, for instance, the big dot pattern that features in the SS16 collection comes from patterns on London Plane Trees near where I live. In terms of designs and shape I like to combine retro with new so I look for inspiration in vintage stores and platforms and I combine these influences with how I feel my customer wants to look today. I keep snippets of inspiration as I go and that eventually becomes a moodboard for the next season.
Which clothing brands do you personally wear?
I have a casual style and wear brands like Frame Denim, MM6, MiH, Sideline, NLST, Rachel Allegra, Des Petit Hauts mixed with finds from Vintage Stores and markets. I also love the directional yet practical style of brands such as LF Markey, Rachel Comey.
Do you think Quattro Rish is the kind of shop you wanted to see your trainers in?
Absolutely, when we launched it was our aim to be stocked in fabulous Indie Boutiques such as Quattro Rish. Being curated amongst the other amazing brands is an honour and I hope that our sneakers bring a smile to customers as they browse the store!
What are your plans for future?
We are focused on increasing the range within our collections. We would also like to see our sneakers in stores internationally.
