Happy Friday from Bowler & Beach HQ!
Since we officially launched a few weeks ago we’ve been asked a number of questions of a recurring theme over and over again…and no, it is not for our autographs (yet). A lot of people, female and male, have asked us just who is the face of Bowler & Beach, and what is he like?
We thought it high time therefore, to put the spotlight on the very talented and very entertaining Jamie Roche, the model / actor / presenter who rocks our swim shorts in the first ever Bowler & Beach photo shoot. Did we mention he is really, really ridiculously good looking? Read on for the Bowler & Beach 10 questions in 10 minutes with Jamie Roche…
Bowler & Beach (B&B): What have you been up to since the Bowler & Beach photoshoot?
Jamie Roche (JR): So since shooting the Bowler & Beach campaign I’ve been a busy boy indeed, flying to Switzerland for a snowboard shoot for Mountain Warehouse, filming a TV commercial for a very well known hayfever treatment and photoshoot for Jaguar to name a few. I’ve also hanging out with my baby Girl Elodie as family time and social life are a priority with me and I feel it’s important to keep a good balance.
B&B: Do you have a party trick?
JR: Crab to handstand, just epic 🙂
B&B: Tell us something about you that not many people know…
JR: Here’s a big part in my life not many will know, I’m really big into animal protection and conservation and the planet. I try not to preach but try to inspire others to think a little differently when choosing what to eat and how to see animals/wildlife and nature. I love being connected in this way it’s uplifting and its own reward.
B&B: What is your favourite Bowler & Beach Animal swim short style?
JR: Seahorses – I just love those little guys!
B&B: What was the best location for a photoshoot?
JR: The Hampton’s for Abercrombie and Fitch.
B&B: Who are your favourite style icons?
JR: I do like a bit of the old Beckham style.
B&B: What three items would you take with you if you were on a desert island?
JR: If I was stuck on a desert island I would take a bucket for castle building my wife and my baby girl. But if it was a dessert island I’d take a spoon.
B&B: Which three famous people would you like to hang out with at the beach?
JR: Boris Johnson seems interesting as long as he brings his bike. Leonardo DiCaprio so we could fix the world and Sir Ian Mckellan.
B&B: What is your favourite quote?
JR: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” Oscar Wilde
B&B: Where will you be you wearing your Bowler & Beach swim shorts this summer?
JR: I’m heading to the Isle of Wight tomorrow so they will be making a show there and then Corfu for the summer!
