: Fashion and style
How do you define the creations of men's fashion today?
It is difficult to define fashion, everything changes very fast, but I see that some brands have are working more with me. Each place has a more or less well defined style. If you go to New York, Paris or London you can see that people do not follow labels.
What are the five essentials of the male wardrobe?
Jacket and leather boots, jeans, shirt, socks and underwear.
Do you have any beauty ritual?
I think every man must take care, especially those who work in my profession. I use moisturizers for the face.
How do you define your style?
When I'm in town I like that rocker look, denim shirt and leather jacket. When I'm at the beach just walk in flip-flops and shorts.
What are the essentials in your backpack?
A book, my iPod, water, a pair of socks and a pack to store documents.
Which book is now in your backpack?
I just finished the Agape, from Paulo Coelho. I like fiction, but I prefer books from what you can learn something. By the time you read the story, she becomes part of who you are, so I prefer books with a message.
What's on your iPod?
I'm very eclectic. I love electronic music, hip-hop and rock, like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix.
What nobody or almost nobody knows about you?
I'm shy! When I get in places where there are people waiting for me to come smiling and super nice, but I'm little reserved. And that can sometimes seem like antipathy. But I'm working on it and it has improved.
What talent would like to have?
Would like to sing. I singing in the shower when no one is listening ..
One thing I would like to have?
I am a very calm boy. Today I have no desire so, but maybe one day would be nice to have a beach house.
What's one thing you wish you had invented?
The guys who invented the Swiss chocolates deserve a round of applause. I wish I had invented it!
Who are the people who inspire you in fashion, career in art and in life?
My mother, who inspires me always. As for idols, I only had one, surfing champion Andy Irons, who died last year. My dream was always to be a professional surfer and he was the sporstman who inspired me the most.
:: Around the world
What do you like about your job?
Travelling without any doubt. It is difficult to choose the coolest place. Like, Paris, amazing, Greece, beautiful, London, diverting, Milan, funny, New York, mode. All places are very different.
What was the most interesting place you've been in the last 12 months?
Place you would like ti visit?
Tahiti, Australia, Africa.
What is the coolest place you would recommend in New York?
It has many places, but there's a place where you can always hear laughs. It is a Thai restaurant which is located between 2nd and 8th Avenue, named Tai.When I lived with Chico Lachowski and Max Motta, we went there almost every day.
