Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

In between! I don't go all Lady Gaga, but I would still dare to wear clothes no one else would consider cool or trendy, and do my own thing with them.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Sometimes people are trying very hard to follow a trend, no matter how bad it makes them look. So the biggest mistake is not being yourself.

Do you believe in role models?

Yes I do.

What are your favourite fabrics?

I don't really know if I have a favourite one to be honest.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

Red chinos with a shirt and blazer...on second thought, with almost anything actually. I'm not really a fan of red chinos.

Which city has the best-dressed men?

Paris, London, and Stockholm. I mean it depends on what crowd you are looking for. Obviously, New York has a good fashion sense as well! Sorry, I couldn't select just one!

What are the rules in the way you dress?

Look good, smell good, feel good.

Celebrities and style...

Is something that can be so good, but also very bad, especially when a celebrity just puts on whatever they are told to even though it doesn't suit them. Fashion is another way to express yourself...do not underestimate the power of what you can say about yourself with what you wear!

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

My jewellery, hands down! I'm planning to create a jewellery collection in the near future with my mother as designer and maker of the jewellery. I only wear her designs at the moment!

A man should always look like…

He owns his clothes and not the other way around.

Who taught you what you know about style?

I would say a variety of people. It started with my parents I guess, but I also have a lot of friends with an interest in fashion, so we all share new ideas, discuss new items, and kind of "teach" one another...if you want to put it that way.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

It depends on what I'm about to do, but it mostly tends to reflect on how I feel that very day.

What is your biggest regret?

Not walking up to a girl I saw once...hmm, but when it comes to fashion though, we all probably have a few items that we still wonder why we bought them in the first place.

The three essential things a man should know about style are...

You can never be overdressed; be clean and be yourself! A man should never copy someone else, but he can definitely get inspired by others.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

No, I don't really shop in stores anymore.

We will never see you wearing...

Uggs with red chinos.

The most stylish person you have ever seen...

My big homies from Art Comes First.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

Probably my suits.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

Absolutely not.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Acne and Tiger of Sweden. There are obviously more than just these two.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?

Shaka Maidoh and Sam Lambert from Art Comes First, Mr Lo-Haj Kilumanga, and Qhris Magsino.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

"You know what you want and you know what to do, so do exactly that." — My grandmother Anita.
