“Powers of Two”


Creative Duopoly

They say two’s company, three’s a crowd. If the creative duos at the helm of top fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana (Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana) and Kenzo (Humberto Leon and Carol Lim) are anything to go by, it seems there is some truth in the well-known adage. “Powers of Two” by Joshua Shenk examines what happens when two minds who think alike come together and explores the synergy and creative rivalry that ensues. The book takes a look at the incredible results that can be achieved by pairing two creative minds and offers insights that may make business managers rethink their own company structures.
