We rounded up a few of the staff here at Afends HQ to give you an insight into their day-to-day lives and shop their favourite looks from our new season drop.
Our first edition of staff profiles gives you the chance to get to know all the weird and wonderful traits of our Afends family and how they're styling our new range. From double denim get-ups to bubblegum pink graphic tees, recycled puffer sets and all-over floral prints, these are the top picks from our latest collection as chosen by the team here at the Afends HQ.

ANY LAST WORDS? I have a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe if you care to give it a go:
Ash’s chocolate chip cookies:
Stir wet ingredients in the dry ones, squish with ya hands and make balls on a baking tray sprinkle rosemary and salt on top. Put that shit in the oven for like 15-20 mins at 180. Just watch it till they look cooked on the outside and rip in. If its not perfect the first time just make it again different!
