Micheal explained the motive behind his move into fashion, crediting his mother as his influence in an interview with the Evening Standard.

"Fashion was something I never went after before, but it’s so important, as it shows who you are," he said.

"Back in New York [where he grew up], I didn’t have a good reputation for fashion, because I wore what I liked and I’d be called a hipster for just wearing a couple of chains..

"But one thing my Mu taught me was to dress how you feel, dress how you want. She loved dressing up for every occasion and sometimes wore some pretty crazy stuff."
