1985 Tropical Barbie is the coolest Barbie ever made, but she's lacking two things: a pair of Pum Pum socks and proper baby hair. Tropical Barbie, meet Stylist, Creative Director, Photographer and Pum Pum sock founder- Savannah Baker.
A current Westbourne Grove resident but originally hailing from the two hottest spots on the planet, Jamaica and NYC, Savannnah is an all round super-stylist and sock queen. Yes the lady makes socks. Pum Pum socks ‘prides itself on the right balance of cute & cool with a flare of sweet Island vibes.’ You get the drift. If you wanna catch a glimpse of the Pum Pum sockette look no further than Savannah-styled Rita Ora campaign for Superga. Those frilly little dreams poking out of Rita’s shoes? Pum Pum of course. The Island vibes don’t stop there, a recent campaign for Suitcase magazine entitled Dancehall Queen is a feast of green, yellow and red. Savannah’s most recent work is with New York Gyal Rappers as part of a Vice collaboration that saw her styling wi-fi wife’s and Tumblr princesses like Azealia Banks, Junglepussy and Olivia Seally. Editorials for the likes of A La Champ showcases Savannah’s other, equally sumptuous tastes. Latex, cow hide, marabou and puppies: a very modern, sex-shop take on the 90s mall-girl. We’re in.
Jamaica is at the heart of Savannah’s work; she’s styled numerous Popcaan videos and is embarking on more and more Jamaican concept based work. The girl recently embarked on an iD project where she set about documenting the coolest kids of Jamaica. Savannah has captured true Caribbean characters sporting the boldest ensembles you’ve ever seen; Dior-logo sleeveless denim jackets, top hats, banana print pantaloons and nails longer than the fingers they decorate. Plans for the future include releasing a book, building the Pum Pum brand and getting back on a plane to Kingston. Welcome to Jam Rock!
