Haven’t got a clue. Things that are interesting to me at the moment
are the minds and vision of people ten years younger than me, working out
how to portray a real feeling in its most pure format through a computer
monitor and second-hand record stores.
Who is your favorite menswear designer?
For me it’s always been Raf Simons for his non-compromising attitude to
his collections and his constant ability to reinvent and push menswear
forward. I’m not sure anybody will ever do what he did with some of his
collections of the late ’90s to early ’00s. If anybody is going to, it
will be Damir Doma. He is an unbelievable talent. I also really like
what Junichi Abe is doing with the brand Kolor right now.
Favorite winter staple?
My winter staple is definitely a scarf. For me, the best products are
based on practicality yet still add something to an aesthetic.
