ST. O’DONNELL’S SELECT GALLERY PROFILE: OLD-HABITS C/O CLAUDE ESSUMAN

With an eye and attention to detail that is rarely seen in upcoming boutique brands, Old – Habits is already making waves and grabbing the attention of fashion and music publications like HighSnobiety.Despite not being formally launched or released, the label already has a long waiting list of customers wanting to cop their staple headgear gear.

We sat down and had a chat to the brains behind the brand to talk inspiration, goals and what we can expect from the label at our Select Gallery.

Who are you and what do you do ?

My name is Claude Essuman.. aka Claude Nume aka Claud$(Too many aka-drops). Originally from Cameroon, I’m a young designer with architectural qualifications. Been around the fashion industry for 5+ years. I consider myself a very sociable person with good taste in Fashion.

A feature piece of Old-habits on Highsnobiety. The exposure and love from the Highsnobiety  was very humbling and inspiring.

How would you describe the aesthetic of your Old Habits?

Minimalist, edgy Unisex clothing for everyday wear for teens and young adults trying to express themselves through fashion

What are your plans for the future ?

Old-habits is my most cherished project to date under  MaisonCNE, which  officially launches next year (keep an eye-out for that).
