P Posted by Sandra on October 31 2012 0 Comments Dougie Poynter, News, Saint Kidd

It occurred to me the other day that whilst, here at MoreJessicaRose, women are celebrated; their problems mulled over, their day brightened (hopefully), their achievements noted – not once has a man been singled out for his achievements and success.

I realised if I was to do this I would first need a man. Having found many men, I realised I needed an interesting, ambitious, intelligent, charming and handsome man. As you can imagine this cut my options down drastically.

As fate would have it I heard that a certain globally famous, McFly bass playing genius, has turned his hand to designing clothes. Oh and no biggie but he’s also King Of The Jungle. Ah, but is he good looking? Answer: never before has one so seamlessly tranformed from boyishly goodlooking to handsomely rugged. Perfect.

Dougie Poynter, take a seat.

Your clothing line Saint Kidd appears to have a heavy pirate influence?

I think my pirate obsession started as a kid so yes, there is that influence but I think we were mainly inspired by the time; the architecture, colour and design that was around in the 17th / 18th century.

Why have you chosen to design for women as well as men?

Women’s wear is more versatile; there are different cuts, and it feels like the fashion changes more than mens. Plus we can get away with putting flowers and butterflies on stuff, which we can’t with the mens shirts.

At the moment Saint Kidd has graphic t-shirts, accessories and jewellery what other areas of clothing design is Saint Kidd likely to branch into?

With Saint Kidd I don’t think there is any limit. We’ve started with t shirts because we’re a small company and we didn’t want to go straight in with various designs we wanted to grow and build a fanbase for Saint Kidd and establish it slowly – that way hopefully it will be a bigger deal when we do move into other areas.

Pirates were notoriously superstitious are you?

I’m very superstitious. There’s one thing especially – there’s a certain band from around the 80s their name rhymes with ‘Liar Baits’ and every time their most famous song is played something bad happens. The worst is when I’m about to get on a plane and I hear one of their songs, that really gets the adrenaline going..

Butterflies, superstitions and business intellect. Don’t you love it when a man surprises you…
