VKN Man Of The Month – April

Sunjay J Kapur
Chairman of Sona Group
Auto Component Manufacturing
India | Germany | USA

For those who believe in past lives, you know when you meet someone, you knew them from before.  This is the case with this month’s ‘Man of the Month’.  Mr. Sunjay Kapur grew up on the complete opposite tracks as I did.  Industrialist, TV star, champion Polo player and deemed by GQ India as the “Duke of Delhi.”  Of course when we first met at a friend’s wedding in Houston, he automatically assumed that anyone he did not know must be part of the staff.  For most of the evening, Mr. Kapur was puzzled as to why the limousine driver (me) was drinking whiskey with the other guests.  This seriously concerned him to the point that he approached me to interrogate me on my behavior.  Of course, I rebutted with a very harsh use of language that eventually set a lifelong friendship in place.  Today, Mr. Kapur is Chairman of a global manufacturing business in Delhi and a fan of both myself and the brand.  Over the past few years, Mr. Kapur has also become far more enlightened and has steered away from the so called “luxury” labels in lieu of true craftsmanship.  Cheers, Mr. Kapur, I look forward to our India invasion soon.

My work is about far more than creating clothing and a responsibility to myself, the consumer and the human existence. I do not design clothing, I engineer a wardrobe that offers versatility, function and sophistication. I am more focused on raising the bar and creating a timeless aesthetic. Trends are futile. For those that seek the exquisite, you will truly enjoy my work. After all, it was created with you in mind.​​
