What is luxury?
Luxury is defined by longevity. A luxury product will stand the test of time in terms of durability and aesthetics.
What are three luxuries you allow yourself?
Firstly, we’ve allowed ourselves the luxury of working with something we have a passion for. We’re independent, innovating, creating, traveling and setting forth strategies for our own line of work. Yes, there are privations and financial insecurity in the course of time it takes to establish a brand, but the freedom, passion and flexibility we have in our working life are of much more value to me.
Secondly, we’ve had two children over the last three years. In the midst of a hectic work life establishing Mismo, we also wanted to have children. Stressful, yes. On the verge of self-detonation at times, yes. Biggest joy in life, yes!
