On a bright Friday afternoon, casual chat between Karan & Shiv. TGIF 🍔
Karan: Hey Shiv! I have an idea to change the way people look at fashion?
Shiv: What’s on your mind?
Karan: I was thinking that the world doesn't need a fashion brand & certainly doesn't need more clothing. We need a world free of fast consumption.
Shiv: How do we do that?
Karan: Think about it? Brands throw thousands of styles at us, we buy them impulsively & end up packing our wardrobes with pieces of clothing that go out of style very quickly.
Shiv: You maybe right! My wardrobe is over flowing with clothes that I’ve sparingly worn & yet I end up buying more.
Karan: Exactly! And I spend nearly 10 mins every morning thinking, what the hell am I going to wear today? In the end, i reach out for a staple.
Shiv: Same here.… I guess it’s with everyone.
Karan: We need to create a sensible, permanent collection that is...for forever.
Mid 2017, in small 10x10 room with a handful of fabric swatches and a vision to help men build a more thoughtful wardrobe. Aristobrat was born. Launched with 5 t-shirts in White, Black, Maroon, Blue & Grey.
Then we got the A-team 💪🏻
