Read on to learn about this unique brand.

 

phoneQ: Tell us a little about your company, how long in business, etc.

A: We launched the Sloane Ranger brand at the end of 2011.  However, our parent company (Prime Source Accessories) has been in the gift and accessory industry for 32 years!  We love the timeless Sloane Ranger story and background (Princess Diana was the first Sloane Ranger!) and in 2011 thought it was the perfect time to bring this classically cool styling across the pond to the US.  The Sloane Ranger brand is inspired by the effortlessly chic style seen on the streets of London’s Sloane Square in Chelsea.  We are all about merging classic British prep with modern day styles and silhouettes.

 

wallQ: What are your product offerings?  What’s unique about your products vs. other manufacturers?

A: Currently our product assortment is comprised of high quality bags and accessories.  Our classic preppy motifs combined with new and current styling makes our collection a hit with specialty boutique retailers around the country.

 

 

Q: Where do you get your inspirations and trend direction from for new products?

A:  All of our direction is based off the classic Sloane Ranger styling from London.  Our designs are rooted in timeless classic motifs but designed in new and fresh colorways and silhouettes.  This season you will see a few new handbag silhouettes that are based off emerging silhouettes on the fashion scene.  For instance, the bucket bag style is coming back in a big way this season and we have launched our own version in our classic printed canvas material.  This bag is sure to be a hit amongst preppy fashionistas.

Q: What do you love most about attending the markets? 

A: We love that each market presents us with an opportunity to tell our story and show our brand to new people.  We also love connecting with our existing customers and showing them new additions to our collection.  We just really love the exposure the markets bring and all of the positive energy!

Q: Why do customers love your products?

A: Customers love our products because they love not only how they look, but also how they stand up over time.  Our focus has always been on quality paired with modern preppy design.  Further, when people learn the story and background of Sloane Ranger (this is a great reference for more background information about the Sloane Ranger carterm) they want to learn more and connect with our brand.  We have a weekly fashion blog, Modern Prep Gazette, where we share articles about the Sloane Ranger lifestyle as well as keep active on all of our social networks.  We are constantly sharing new content that relates to our brand and our customers have really loved it!

Q: What does the future hold for Sloane Ranger?  Maybe a small sneak peek into future product expansions, ideas, etc.

A:  First of all we are so excited to join the OneCoast team to kick off 2015!  As far as future product expansions – we don’t want to give away too much but we do want you to know that any new product will be carefully planned to fit within the Sloane Ranger lifestyle.  You can certainly count on it to be timeless and preppy!

OneCoast is honored to now be representing Studio M by Magnet Works.

At Studio M, great art fuels everything we do. Working together with talented artists from around the world, we create the unexpected. We dare to create remarkable, quality products that inspire creativity and personal expression. Recognized as one of the top outdoor décor companies, our products range from decorative flags, mats, and mailbox covers to Art Poles and mini garden items. As a small, family-owned business based in St. Louis, Missouri, we have been committed to the success of independent retailers for over 25 years. Read on to learn about this unique brand:

 

Q: Tell us a little about your company, how long in business, how you got started, etc.

flagA: It all started with a simple idea. Sue Todd wanted a way to decorate her mailbox for Christmas, but there was nothing on the market that fit the bill. She and her husband, Curt, kicked the idea around and finally came up with a solution that took the market by storm – MailWraps magnetic mailbox covers. Now, more than 25 years later, the family-owned business has grown to support more than 60 employees and has been recognized as an industry leader in outdoor décor.

Q: What are your product offerings?  What’s unique about your products vs. other manufacturers?

A: Studio M by Magnet Works thrives on innovation. From our very first product to our newest lines, innovative design, beautiful artwork, and high quality have always been our priorities. Our products range from decorative flags, mats, and mailbox covers to Art Poles, Art Pots, and Gypsy Garden minis. We’re not a fan of “me too” products, so you can count on Studio M to provide you with unique items you can’t find anywhere else.

potQ: Where do you get your inspirations and trend direction from for new products?

A: Inspiration comes from so many places. Our product development team tries to stay current on websites, blogs and social media to see what products, colors, themes and sentiments people are discussing and sharing. Quite often artists will approach us with new artwork for a category or a new product concept and will speak to certain trends in their presentation. Knowing how best to apply that information to each product category is what sets us apart.

 

Q: What do you love most about attending the markets? 

A: Markets are a great opportunity to connect with our community – retailers, artists, and friends in the industry. We love getting feedback from our customers and hearing how they react to our new products. It’s always so exciting to have the artists in our showrooms seeing their products for the first time. They’re some of the best in the industry, and we’re so lucky to work with them. And finally, we love catching up with our friends and peers in the industry that we’ve grown alongside all these years.

Q: Why do customers love your products?

welcomeA: Customers love our products because, like us, they appreciate beautiful artwork. Our products provide people with an easy way to bring artwork into their homes or gardens so that it can be enjoyed every single day. We strive to make products that awaken the creative spirit and encourage self-expression.

Q: What does the future hold for Studio M?  Maybe a small sneak peek into future product expansions, ideas, etc.

A: We will continue to introduce products that excite us. We are looking into each of our product categories to see how we can bring newness either with artwork, subject matter, sentiments, theme, etc. or with innovation to materials. We are mindful of how product categories are merchandised at the retail level so we are also looking into tools to help shop owners – like new fixtures and signage.
