NEZIR YOZGAT HAS AN IMPORTANT PLACE IN THE FASHION WORLD WITH THE KARMALOOG BRAND. WE HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH KARMALOOG AND ITS YOUNG BOSS NEZIR YOZGAT, WHO SHOWED UP IN THE GIANTS ARENA WITH THEIR COLLABORATIONS.
Mr. Yozgat, first of all, thank you for accepting our interview offer. Who is Nezir Yozgat? Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
Hi, thank you for your interview offer. My name is Nezir Yozgat, 27 years old, I was born and raised in Holland. My parents were originally from Yozgat and my grandfather emigrated to Holland in 1968. I studied in the Netherlands, but when I was 19, I quit school and started working. At the age of 23, I have established my own company and I am currently trading and investing in different sectors under “Yozgat Holding”.
To tell you about your company, what is the Karmaloog? What does Karmaloog do? Can you tell us about her story?
Karmaloog started its activities by designing unusual T-shirts as a clothing brand. Then, among the players, famous actors, models and singers, it began to attract attention at the Festival de Cannes and Monaco. “Ultra luxury” redefines the luxury industry right now and is positioned as a brand where everything goes through the customer’s mind is possible.
Could you tell us about your cooperation with Hublot?
As a Hublot watch brand, we have the same customer group in the luxury watch industry as they work with different materials and are innovative in the materials they use. We put Hublot’s “One Click” system in our jacket and let the watch merge with the jacket. In this collaboration, the watch and jacket team were presented to the world for $ 1 million.
How did the cooperation take place?
There wasn’t the only one who took the offer. We met in Italy at the launch of Hubot’s new watches. After getting to know each other a little bit, we realized that our cooperation was going to be very strong and the first steps were taken in the project.
Have you had any cooperation with different companies, such as Hublot cooperation?
We do not have any other cooperation now because we want the companies we cooperate to be in different sectors and we are very selective. But we’re in touch with a few car brands, and who knows, there may be new developments in a short time.
Are you going to open Karmaloog boutiques in other cities around the world?
Within 2 years, we are planning to open 3 more boutique in Europe. We have received offers to open a franchise- shaped boutique from the US and the UAE, but we have refused to hold the brand’s exclusivity for now.
What are your goals as a fashion house that has signed business associations that bring voice to the world?
I would like to realize that “placing a jacket on a moon or a different planet and buying it is only possible if the customer goes into space.”
If we talk about your products, could you talk about the materials you use?
We use exotic skins. Crocodile, serpent and peacock leather is known as valuable and luxurious in the world, both in terms of quality and exotic. We’re not the only brands that use these skins, but we choose them individually. We make a difference by making our jackets bulletproof with” carbon aramid “ material. We also have a collection called “silver line” which we produce using standard quality leather in our boutiques and outlets. With this collection, we appeal to our customers who say, “I want quality, but the crocodile and the snake are a little over my budget.”
What are the price ranges in Karmaloog?
There is no limit to our prices, it depends entirely on what the customer wants.
Do you have hobbies? Do you have any pleasure in dealing with outside work?
I don’t have much time for hobbies, but I like reading books, enjoying good food and a good cigar.
What is your favorite holiday place you can recommend to our readers? The city where you enjoy being in the world and spending time…
Would you believe me if I said Yozgat? (Laughs) But i do not have one city that i like and enjoy, ınfortunately i am bored after a certain period of time. Maybe I can’t stand it because I’m used to busy life. If I had to choose, I’d like to listen to my head for a few days on a deserted island for the holidays. Of course, if I recommend this to the readers, the island will not be deserted. My only advice: don’t go where everyone goes and look for treasures that no one knows about the world. In this way, you spend incredible time and experience new cultures. This does not add color to your Instagram, but to your life.
Is there a restaurant that you can recommend for our readers who are looking for new tastes?
In Istanbul, there is a very nice taster on the “Bebek” coast, on the side of the road. I don’t know the name of the kiosk, but it’s delicious toasty with sausage. (Laughs)
