BLINK WELCOME ROTTINGDEAN BAZAAR.
4 March 2021

If the Wombles ever fancied a move into fashion design, they could learn a thing or two from Rottingdean Bazaar.

Based in the East Sussex village of Rottingdean, RB comprise James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks - a pair of Central Saint Martins graduates who turn everyday objects into absurdist, DIY fashion.

Following the release of their debut music video in November 2020, the duo have now joined Blink for global representation. Managing director Paul Weston and co were taken with Rottingdean Bazaar's lo-fi approach, as were post-punk band Dry Cleaning.


Blink HQ say the pair already have plenty of "bold, distinctive, and extraordinary work" under their belts, and are "beyond excited to welcome them and their wealth of skills to our talent roster". Expect to see more from the South Coast innovators soon.

In the meantime, check out this squiggly effort for fashion website SHOWstudio that explores cohesion and scale. Accompanied by a jaunty accordion soundtrack, the piece demonstrates Rottingdean Bazaar's flair for sustainable silliness.


Click here to see more of James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks's output, then ring Paul Weston (paul@blinkprods.com) for commercial enquiries or Laura Northover (laura@blinkprods.com) for music videos on 020 7494 0747.
