Meet BRIKA: Gavin Whyte


BRIKA is all about building connections and sharing stories that inspire and delight. While it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a dedicated team to build an online community — and we thought it was high time you got to know them! So we’ve turned the tables on our BRIKA team and asked them all the same questions we ask our amazing Makers every week.

BRIKA-Gavin-WhyteMerchandising Assistant

With degrees in psychology and fashion merchandising, Gavin is not only 'living the merchandising dream at BRIKA' as he puts it, but is also the go-to guy for BRIKA customer service (not to mention fashion advice). If you want to know why items you purchase arrives at different times or how to use your credit, he's the guy to ask. Check out his help videos here.

Where did you last visit that inspired you? Why?

The last place that inspired me was the Maldive Islands and New York City. The natural beauty of the Islands was so striking. I would say the same for the architecture and energy in NYC; two very different places that have inspired me in different ways.


What 5 songs do you listen to on repeat?

There are quite a few guilty pleasures on repeat on my playlist, all of which I stand unwaveringly behind.

"Daydreamer" – Adele

"Spice Up Your Life" – Spice Girls

"My Blood" – Ellie Goulding

"Power and Control" – Marina and the Diamonds

"Bedroom Hymns" – Florence and the Machine

What’s on your shopping wish list right now?

My shopping list always includes unattainable items that I have to have. The current list includes a satchel bag, another leather biker jacket (I don’t own a bike… yet), and the Black Moss Weekend Duffel from TM1985.

What's your favorite:

Color: BLUE! When I was a kid, everything had to be blue. My room, my clothes, it was a bit excessive. I’m still a bit obsessed but I think I’ve branched out.

Room: My favourite room of the house is technically not in the house… It’s the balcony and I spend as many hours as possible in this outdoor room.

Pair of shoes: My favorite pair of shoes are my leather biker boots by Phillip Sparks, which are the sole reason that I dread the end of winter.
