I’m often asked what inspires me when creating the different pieces in my collections and I have to be honest and say that there is rarely an underlying theme.
I have been asked by a number of guys to create a menswear range – so I thought I would take the plunge.
I actually found it quite easy as a number of JHC womenswear pieces can be simply converted to menswear. For instance, I have modified the Ted Shorts and reinvented them for guys.
The only issue is that most of the guys in Dubai are very conservative in their dress. They wear t-shirts or polo shirts and jeans, shorts or chinos. So I’m not expecting the range to be a commercial success, but it’s been a fun experience.
So watch this space as we launch the JHC Menswear range on 28 March.
