How would you describe your style?

I think my style change a lot. I like to create wardrobes that match the place, the city I am in. So I would say eclectic most of all.

Style icons?

Kate Moss in the 90s, Alexa Chung, Chloe Sevigny. Friends‘ and That 70’s Show‘s characters

Are you a closet editor or collector?

I would say both… I hate to get rid of my clothes because they all represent something to me, a moment, a city… So I collect a lot. But in my everyday wardrobe I mostly have basics, I usually keep one uniform for a few weeks that I mix with one strong piece. I’m a big collector of jackets for example.
