With nearly 18 years in the fashion market, Incu has become a destination fashion and lifestyle space offering an array of international brands as well as the some of the most coveted Australian labels which SOE is proudly apart of.
With people, great partnerships and considered yet unique design at the heart of the brand, there has always been a great synergy between State of Escape and Incu, sharing similar brand values and love of community.
To celebrate Father’s Day this year we sat down with Douglas Low, CEO of Incu. Doug is warm, generous and effortlessly put together which left us curious to see what Father’s Day looks in the Low family.
What fatherly advice do you have for new fathers, or for fathers-to-be?
There are so many books, blogs and other ways to get advice, but you’ll drive yourself crazy trying to follow someone else’s advice. Just pick and choose what works best for you and your family and you won’t go wrong because no manual can prepare you for such a unique experience as being a father.
What is one of the best things about being a Father?
Being a father completely changes your perspective on life. Seeing Marlow's reactions to new experiences and being able to share in this is pretty special.
Have you any fun Father’s Day traditions you could share with us?
Because Marlow is still quite young (she’s 3) we haven’t quite built up any traditions, but there’s always been a card that she’s made at daycare every year. They have gone from being very abstract to being able to start to understand what she’s tried to draw, so I look forward to seeing what this year’s looks like!
What do you want to see on the dinner table this Father’s Day?
I like simple food so we’ll be getting bento’s delivered from Musubi, which is a very traditional Japanese place that specialises in homestyle Japanese food. I am sure some ice-cream will also be on the menu.
What local, hidden gem have you found on your daily escape that you haven’t noticed before?
During the covid period, it’s allowed the weekend morning walks with Marlow and our dog Neko to be a more relaxed pace, as there’s been no reason to rush home. We were regularly walking to Ballast Point in Balmain (also called the place where mummy and daddy got married to Marlow) where Marlow would play near the storage tanks and we also discovered trees which people had covered in colourful pompoms. On sunny days it’s a pretty special place!
