Where do you draw inspiration from?
We both draw inspiration from different aspects of luxury such as timeless, classic period style, architecture that uses luxurious finishes as it completes the home, and restaurants of fine dining with chandeliers and neatly pressed and set tablecloths which give the ambience to the room. We place ourselves in each of those settings, and we design looks based on how we think a guy should enter the room, wearing fine timeless attire while accessories are the finishing touches, just like designing a home.
Can you talk about your practice in the light of a global pandemic and sociopolitical crisis—what changed, what remains the same?
Customer service has always been at the forefront of our business and always will be. Since the pandemic, we have focused on private fashion consultations to assess what is missing from our client’s wardrobe, so that during this time, they’re not spending on unnecessary items but instead on items that they can use now.
Where do you see the future of design in the post-COVID world?
In the post-COVID world, we will see more creativity in everyday style. People have more time on their hands, which allows them to be more creative putting everyday looks together with what wardrobe they have already invested in. We call this the “Return On Their Style Investment.”
