It all began about 19 years ago when the duo started their own brand ‘H2O’, a branding dealing only in men’s shirts. Today, they have extended their brand and deal in womenswear, accessories and of course menswear. They are mainly inspired by modern architecture, geometric shapes and contemporary art while paying major attention to the garment silhouette and details.
