What do you expect to be a major trend or must- have item/classification for SS14?

The patterns are gonna keep flooding over us but we're ready to move on and keep it more solid.

 

Which collections are you most looking forward to seeing and why?

Our new WELCOME collection because it will be something else and also Rick Owens because we just started working with him.

 

How do you see men's style evolving for next summer?

The bravest will move on from the patterns and look more into the "future"

 

Do you sell anything in your store besides fashion? What's hot now?

We sell fashion, nothing else. The fashion world is big enough for us. We don't need postcards and headphones to improve our game.

 

Whats in store for your store? Do you have any news, or major plans you'd like to share with us?

Keep differentiate, do bigger and better, develop our in-house brands. Fashion house status.
