FEATURE INTERVIEW // BARNEY COOLS // DESIGNER/FOUNDER NAT TAUBMAN
Australia’s fastest growing menswear brand Barney Cools returns with the final part of their School of Barney Cools four part collection. This collection makes a bold statement as the brand continues to bring to life their no BS, relaxed yet playful attitude - Made by every day dudes, for every day dudes.
“We’re more than just a T-shirt brand, and I think this collection is testament to that as we’ve honed in our focus on our pants and shorts lineup.” says Nat Taubman ~ Founder/designer.
We quizzed Nat on some random questions - inserted below.
What is the weirdest thing you've ever seen?
I've been to the Burning Man a bunch of times, I've seen some pretty odd things... I'd love to share them but as they say, 'What happens on tour, stays on tour.'
What was your first ever job?
While I was studying I was a Barista. Funnily enough, I used to make coffee for the directors of Zanerobe and that's how I landed my first job in fashion.
If you could have one super power what would it be?
To be able to breath underwater. I'm constantly being tossed around and having waves land on my head, life would be a whole lot less stressful if I could breath under water.
Best surf you've ever had?
I've recently returned from a trip to Indonesia. As well as copping more than my fair share of beatings and being outside my comfort zone, I also got some epic waves. Definitely some of the best I've had. Unfortunately I came home with a nasty gash on my foot and haven't been able to surf since!
Best Aussie saying?
'Nah Mate' - It's simple yet effective.
