The duo’s designs may not be in stores yet, but it seems they are already on the fast track to success. Sinhastanic has recently landed a contract with AEFEE — the Italian luxury goods company that distributes Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, and Jean Paul Gaultier. As the first British label to ever be taken on by the venerable distributor, perks include a team of staff to help them develop their collections and a showroom space in their Milan headquarters to present and sell. According to Colin McDowell, London’s resident fashion godfather, what this deal really means is that Sinhastanic’s clothes “will be beautifully made and distributed at the right time” — a feat not easily achieved in London.
