MM: What attracted you to menswear design, and to knitwear, specifically?
CB: It was natural for me to choose menswear. You get to work with lines and silhouettes that are different to those in womenswear. What is so great with knitwear is that you get to make the textile from scratch, and can shape it as you like. It’s important to me to have that kind of control over the project.
MM: How would you describe your aesthetic?
CB: Casual silhouettes, playful, subtle and experimental, with a big focus on textiles.
MM: How has preparing for LFW AW 2011 been?
CB: I just had my show in Oslo, and it went well. It’s been busy preparing for two shows! Fun to get to show to the Norwegians because there the interest is just as big from women as it is from men. Will be interesting to see the response in London!
