I thought of a dozen more questions I'd like to ask Hussein after I left the Chalayan studio, but will patiently add them to a filed list, neatly in keeping with Hussein's penchant for filing ideas, notes and sketches for a later date.

Given the years of hype around the idea of their smartwatch, it would have been all too easy for Apple to just stick a sixth-generation iPod Nano on an overpriced wrist strap and be done with it.

Something clear when speaking to him, was that this is a brand sweetened with Jamie Laing.
