Luxos featured an interview with Patrick Dempsey about KA/NOA in January:
Patrick, how does the KA/NOA brand speak to your personal taste? How do you make it your own?
I appreciate the fact that it is a family-run company and the fact that it is classic and timeless -- yet it is modern too, that’s what I love. I want to look at a picture in ten years’ time and go “hey I’m not a fashion victim." If you’ve seen the documentary on Netflix “True Cost” it can help you understand that just because something is cheap and trendy, it doesn’t make it good, or ethical, as a product. I’d rather spend more and have something I will enjoy forever. I cherish the fact that I will have these items for a lifetime.
