Whippet & Buck

Whippet & Buck

After a long and anticipated wait, Whippet & Buck opened their mainstore on May 5, 2009. Dakota Buck is the creative director and Twiggy Whippet is the designer of this stylish new store.

I recently had an opportunity to throw some questions at designer Twiggy Whippet.

Strawberry: Where does your inspiration come from?
Twiggy: It’s hard to pin-point any specific source of inspiration. We both devour as much vaguely fashion related content as possible. ‘Kota has an impressive collection of fashion magazines and I am an avid people watcher. A lot of inspiration comes from our city, Brisbane, as well and I hope that will come across in future pieces. The store itself was inspired by the classic “Queenslander” style houses in the area and I like to think that the conservative yet casual and artistic feel that I get from those houses translates into the clothing.

Strawberry: Are your products all hand drawn?
Twiggy: Each fabric textures is hand-created with a combination of stock photos, brushes and photoshop treatments and the rest is hand-drawn with mouse and tablet. The tartan pattern was hand-drawn as well because we wanted to have our own signature (and infinitely customisable) base. Some more signature patterns are in the works as well. The jewelry textures are also hand-drawn – it’s just easier to have exactly what you want if you create it yourself.

Strawberry: Do you have a creative professional background?
Twiggy: I’ve bounced around a bit in different creative and design-based jobs, mostly freelance. When ‘Kota and I first started working on W&B in 2007 it was just going to be jewelry and accessories sub-brand to Savvy? because I was fairly burnt out on photoshop at the time. After the project was shelved for a year and I’d switched jobs I decided that I wanted the design outlet again and here it is.
