The son of the renowned designer and tastemaker Bijan Pikand designed a Rolls-Royce at the age of 18 and has been an associate merchandising director at his family’s iconic menswear and fragrances empire since 2008. Educated at Pepperdine and based in Malibu, California, Nicolas Bijan Pakzad has over 2,000 followers on Twitter and loves travelling to Italy. Of clothes design, he told Haute Living: “The classic cut suit will never go out of style and is by far the most elegant. You have to be comfortable in what you are wearing. If I’m wearing a double breasted suit and I’m uncomfortable it’s very easy to tell”.
