Tell us a bit about the inspiration for the collection!
The main thing that inspired by collection was of course, my son Ismail. He’s always been fascinated by David Attenborough’s nature documentaries and he’s obsessed with monkeys in particular—whenever a monkey comes on the screen he goes bananas (no pun intended!).
How does your experience with fashion impact your approach to interior design?
I personally believe that if you’re someone who already knows and loves fashion, it’s an easy jump into interior design. You likely really understand what colors go together and what aesthetics work well for certain personalities.
How has becoming a father changed
You know, everyone assumes my style has changed since I became a father, but it hasn’t changed that much! Yes, I might wear slightly a looser pant, but other than that I still like to get dressed up. For me, dressing a certain way makes me emote. When I get dressed in a way that I like, I feel happier—it makes me a jollier person, a jollier parent. Yes comfort is important, but you still want to feel good in what you’re wearing!
