WHAT ARE THE BEST PART OF BEING CREATIVE DIRECTOR AT GANT?
The fact that we are a lifestyle brand with menswear, womenswear, childrenswear, accessories, watches, interior, fragrance, shoes and eyewear. It's amazing having all these tools to work with, trying to paint "the big picture" in a way that feels unique to GANT.
What's your hidden talent?
I'm a pretty OK cook. It's not very hidden I guess… I also play the piano well enough for people to say "Wow, I didn't know you played piano!" at parties.
