Q: How do you select your clothing every morning?
Living in Stockholm means you always have to look at the thermometer in the window and then party! I don’t do a big selection; I go for a designer shirt, black or gray pants, and a quality jacket. The most important thing in my daily look are the shoes — it takes a few extra minutes to choose the ‘ones.’
Q: What are the rules in the way you dress?
I embrace my lean frame and accentuate it. Narrow-tailored suits, narrow pants, skinny ties, skinny jeans, Chelsea boots. I like streamlined dressing that can take me through the many facets of my day and into the night. I live on the road and don’t believe in over packing, I like a wardrobe that works for me and not against me. I take that approach when I work with our many customers at Neiman Marcus. Clothes should be an asset in your wardrobe, not a detriment. If you feel great in what you are wearing you ultimately look great. Fit has a tremendous amount to do with that attitude. It’s not about the most expensive clothes, it’s about clothes that fit and flatter your body and your personality.
