Imogene Barron is a damn talented human.
Known for her work as a fashion stylist and creative director, Imogene’s collaborated with talent from all walks of life, such as Ed Templeton, Clementine Creevy, Na-Kel Smith and Stormzy, to name a few. The chances of you encountering Imogene’s name outside of fashion circles are equally as high too. She has been deeply involved in the creative process of some of our most cherished surf films (including The Smiling Bag, that Dion Agius is sending out to the world for free via email), has designed a model with our favourite sunglasses brand EPØKHE, and excels behind the lens, as you might have seen in her photo series in Volume V.
Spending time with her in Barcelona last year (her European home at the time) was just the finest of times: She took us to her favourite neighbourhood of Poblenou: we ate dumplings with a slightly hungover Evan Mock, wandered in La Ramblas, and drank Rosado whilst watching old couples bathing on the beach—where, you might have guessed by now—the photo above was snapped.
Following this trip and knowing her exquisite taste in music, we asked Imogene if she was keen to curate a playlist for us. The seed was planted. Although before we knew it, we were back being busy to our respective corners of the world… until the whole world was put under lockdown.
Imogene was actually still in America—Montauk, of all places—two weeks ago, but with the situation getting very uncertain on the East Coast, she had to fly back to her current residence in London. We both agreed it was time for to release her long anticipated, one year in the making playlist—now rebranded under Imogene’s ISO megamix. Ticking at 4h38, it’s slightly longer than our average and we love it. As Imogene put it into words, it will be our new favourite“driving/adventure playlist for when we can hit the road and be back to island vibes again.”
