Designer behind L’Homme Invisible
Fashion designer, Sandeep arrived in Paris in 1999 for his Master in fashion and textile management from Intitut français de la mode. After graduating, he worked for several French and Italian luxury underwear brands, notably for Armani, Christian Lacroix and Givenchy. In fact, L’Homme invisible was one of his clients, it was Sandeep who made first nightwear pajamas “Buddah” for L’Homme Invisible, he fell in love with the brand. Little did he know back then that one day he would become the Creative Director and Owner of L’Homme Invisible.
In 2012, he signed his first collection as Creative Director. The challenge for him was to breathe new life into the brand while protecting and perpetuating the know-how and the French tradition that characterize L’Homme Invisible so well. And the result was outstanding, his first collection opened the doors of Galeries Lafayette and several luxury outlets to L'Homme Invisible.
Ideas, Creation, collections
For Sandeep, the key to his collections is inspiration. He nourishes his imagination in the world of art and design, culture, a constant evolution of our way of life. He is also very inspired by fabrics and materials, he travels all over Europe in search of the best materials, looking at these amazing fabrics, touching them, ideas start to flow.
For him, making men's designer underwear is like a chef who creates a recipe with the ingredients he finds inspiring.
Connection with customers
Sandeep is very close to his customers. He talks a lot with them to meet their expectations and involves them in the creative process. For him it is very important because they are the ones who wear the underwear he creates, so they must be at the heart of the creation.
His vision for the brand in a few years?
Since taking over L’Homme Invisible, he has been trying to move towards greener collections and products that are more respectful of the environment. In the years to come, he would like to push a solidarity approach by focusing more on Handmade and craftmanship to perpetuate the ancestral know-how. More transparency not just on the products but in production (he laughs) and definitely less packaging!
