Back then we were living the lifestyle, we were feeling it. And when you are feeling it, it is much easier to detect what people want, sometimes before they know that they want it. A lot back then had to do with music, art, fashion and TV. But also of course with Hollywood and what was going on in sports. I took all of that inspiration, put it into a mental blender and continued to evolve the look until I started my own brand. With that I decided to focus more on what precisely it was that gave my fashion sensibility a backbone.
