CHASIN’ CREATIVE TEAM HOME OFFICE TOUR 

A LOOK AT OUR CREATIVE TEAM’S HOME WORKSPACE


These strange new times call for flexibility an adaptation. Luckily, our team is fuelled by a never stop attitude. And while our product design team is used to the dynamic Amsterdam HQ, they now are confined to their home workspace, like most of us. Time to take a closer look at the people that create our Performance Jeanswear. How do they cope with working from home? And what inspires them in general? And while we’re at it, we asked them about their collection favourites.

NEVER STOP!

  • Stick to your routine.
  • Get up every day at the same time (for me, that’s 7)
  • A good breakfast is essential. That means good coffee, read up on current affairs and then your ready to hit that To Do list!
  • Exercise is really important. It stimulates creativity. I make sure that I run every day, before I start working.

  • Make sure you have good coffee! Essential start up stuff!
  • I love walking the dog. It’s my moment to relax, clear my mind. A nice reboot!
  • Eat well and eat regularly. Make a hot meal for lunch, for a change. That’ll satisfy you until dinner! And take your time to eat, don’t just do it behind the computer. And eat together with your partner to create a little break.
