#PrimarkMeets Saffron Barker
Reacquaint yourself with our homeware guru Saffy B! After the sell-out success of her debut collection with us last year, we just know this new range is going to be a hit! So, before the madness begins and you rush off to your local Primark to purchase the goods, make yourself a cuppa and take five with Saffron herself, as we ask her about the inspirations behind this new collection, and how her style has moved on since we last saw her. Take it away Saffron…
Hey Saffy! How excited are you to be working with Primark again?
SO excited, it’s a dream come true! I’ve always loved Primark, so can’t believe I’ve been given this opportunity again!
You’re a year older than last time we chatted to you. How has your collection moved on, and what’s your favourite item?
I feel like my collection has grown with me - I’m a year older now and my collection definitely has matured to become more like my current self!
How would you describe your interior style?
My style is a bit of everything really: old, new, retro, kitsch, all mixed together.
Pink and red combinations feature heavily this year and are bang on trend, does this colour choice reflect your wardrobe or make-up style more?
Pink and red are my two favourite colours, and although they commonly clash, that’s what makes them look so good together! The contrast between the colours makes each item really stand out, and definitely reflects my wardrobe choices!
The dreamy room diffusers are an amazing addition to your collection. What is your go-to scent to create a calming bedroom environment?
Scent wise - the sweeter the better, the yummier the better haha !
What’s your favourite type of Youtube video to watch?
Definitely vlogs, I’m so nosy! I also love room tours as they’re great for getting inspiration from other people.
How do you feel about being stocked internationally?
It’s crazy, I’m so excited for it! I have lots of international viewers, so it’s really cool that they’ll be able to pick up some of the range too.
We know travel is a big passion of yours, and you’ve now added some gorgeous luggage to your collection! What is top of your wish list for places to visit?
The places at the top of my wish list to visit are Japan, Jamaica and Australia!
Which is your fave Primark store to shop homeware from?
I’ve visited the Edinburgh store and loved it!
What is your plan of action for getting the best out of a Primark shopping spree?
I have to be super strict with myself when going on a Primark shopping spree because I want to buy everything in store.
