In the business
A designer speaks: When there’s no competition that means the market becomes comfortable and that’s when brands become boring. Healthy competition and new ideas is what keep the industry thriving.
The CEO speaks: We look at it like sex. It’s not about how often we bring out new ranges… it’s about how good it is. We release new styles when the cut, fabric, and pattern are right.
