Is comfort an enemy of style?

Comfort has a way to exist everywhere, being naked is also comfortable.

Please describe your style in three words.

Happy, colourful, casual.

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

Not dressing warm enough or forgetting that it's raining outside.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Organic cotton and techno fabrics.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

I dress fast.

Celebrities and style...

For me, this phrase takes me back to the past, with films featuring Ava Gardner or Audrey Hepburn and her 'collaboration' with Givenchy. Sincerity does not seem to be a thing of the present.

A woman should always look like...

As she likes.

What is your biggest regret?

That I can't wear the same clothes every day.

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

Style is being!

We will never see you wearing...

A fur coat, heels, overalls, a combination of a diving suit or an astronaut's suit.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

I love my orange Courrèges sweater, my Jil Sander coats, my Misericordia jackets, Véronique Branquinho tops, APC jeans, and the no-name clothes that I find in open markets.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her voice.

Who would you like to see next in €œMy Style€?

Aurelyen de Misericordia, Andy Scherperel and Andreas Hoyer of Heimat, a boutique based in Cologne. They have a very precise idea about fashion.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Have faith in you!
