The Ingénue - Zeina Hosni
When a brand has a founder with a true passion for the sport and the associated product you can generally be fairly hopeful about it's success. When you couple that passion with lots of smart business sense, an insurmountable level of drive and a high taste level of style it becomes a dead cert.
Our first business calls were often punctuated with horses who had taken themselves for a walk or who just wanted to add their input vocally but despite the equine interruptions Sakkara founder Zeina Ho and I created one of my favourite projects to date. A start up brand that launched at such a beautiful level, it speaks of craft and evokes heritage despite its young age.
