Your biggest fashion faux pas and flop?
Fashion is fun for me, I don’t take it too seriously. I did wear a lot of culottes in my teens, not the most flattering length.
Your favorite Styletribute pieces?
Polka dot sweater from paul smith and a striped top from Junya Watanabe.
What is vintage for you? How do you think it will evolve in the next 10 years?
I love vintage, especially from the 1940’s and 1970’s. In another 10 years, what we wore in the early 2000’s will already be considered vintage and frankly with fashion constantly looking back into the archives, it’s not going to look that different from what’s available currently.
What is the story behind your favorite fashion pieces?
I love interesting details, prints and textures and my favourite fashion pieces combine all these, as well as being well made to last me through the years.
Sustainable fashion is…
Fashion that lasts, that i see myself wearing at least 30 times, that was made consciously.
