Adam Rogers is, to put it mildly, a multi-faceted denizen of design. Having trained in bespoke tailoring at Central Saint Martins, Rogers has since dipped his vintage-Bally-clad toes into photography, consulting, marketing and styling. Today, he calls himself an artist – an umbrella term that hardly does justice to the extent of his creative endeavours. He ascribes non-uniform day at school as the origin for his appreciation of individuality, and the mission statement of his new creative consultancy, A&A (Adam & Arseto), is to bring back the beauty of advertising. He offers drawings, illustrations, editorial and photography for brands in need of a sensitive facelift. A self-confessed vintage addict, he trawls Portobello and Camden Market routinely and finds it an increasingly saturated – and therefore difficult – medium. “I got into vintage buying and selling at Brooklyn Flea Market, so I was constantly immersed in the world of clothes. The timeless style is what I appreciate from yesteryear. It’s not fickle, it’s not transient; it’s constant.”
