There are a lot of pieces in the market of menswear which are really loud, so I proceeded with neutral shades without taking away the power one feels in these clothes, not at all. For a really long time, all my guy friends were asking me to get into menswear, but I found you really need to take time out to do menswear. So this year I thought to take out some time and just concentrate on menswear. This was a capsule collection, not a full-fledged collection, focussing on menswear — but there are a few pieces of womenswear.”
