What do you and Hennessy have in common?
I am not so presumptuous as to think that I have the kind of history behind me that Hennessy does. But I respect the House and moreover, on a purely personal level, my relationship to
France is very strong: I have been married to a Frenchwoman for 30 years; our two children are half-French! My work with The Clash first took me to Paris in 1981 – so I have a true, historic connection to Paris and France in general. Still, to create for such a prestigious brand is humbling and exciting. I’m creative; Hennessy are craftsmen, and they’re at the top of their game. We’re passionate, we’re dedicated to a process, and we’re always trying to push further to create a better experience.
