” It’s not easy to describe my individual style because it actually depends upon my mood. I truly like to blend lots of colors, patterns– all these pieces that maybe you never ever believe will be good together, then, unexpectedly, you use them and they’re cool. I like to mix vintage with more rock ‘n’ roll pieces, like strong boots, or in some cases more romantic[items] My style is a bit of a mix of different pieces from various periods.
” I’m looking at my Instagram[for an example of an outfit] I was depending on the sun and I was wearing a sports jacket with gorgeous flower embroidery from a brand that I recently discovered. I blended that with vintage Levi’s and with these vintage Gucci loafers that I found in London. While getting lost in vintage stores and markets, all of a sudden I ran into these amazing loafers and they had a fantastic rate. I likewise wore these green socks. It was a cool mix together. I like to mix fun pieces from emerging designers and vintage shops [with] a Dior bag.
” During Paris Fashion Week, I was informed I had to go to a remarkable vintage store called Thank God I’m a VIP It’s a good name. It’s a huge shop and they have actually everything organized by colors, so you get a bit crazy [shopping there] due to the fact that you do not know what to pick. There are a lot of different things from many various brand names, like, Versace, Missoni, Jil Sander, Balenciaga — simply a bit of everything and a remarkable choice of pieces. This has turned into one of my preferred shops.
” I truly like What Walks Around Happens in New York. That one is really pricey, so you can perhaps purchase one bag when a year and mix in less expensive vintage shopping. I likewise choose that due to the fact that I do not actually like going to very costly vintage shops since you can only purchase something– or absolutely nothing. Go someplace where you can afford to make beautiful attire.
” I also really like one in Barcelona called Le Swing Vintage The owner, Renier Guerra, is a friend of mine and he has an incredible choice of devices and clothes from high-end brands, however super inexpensive, like incredible prices.

It’s a really, really small shop, however the owner is remarkable. She has fantastic style and an excellent selection. When I go classic shopping, I select only the things that caught my eye when I walked into the store, like a first crush.
” I also found, four or five years back, perhaps, this vintage Hermès Kelly bag in a classic store in Paris, Lorette & Jasmin, at an incredible cost. It’s my treasure due to the fact that I wear it a lot and nobody can touch it. I’m very generous with my pals– giving clothes and lending clothes– but with this piece, it’s like my treasure. Naturally, I also like Vestiaire Collective and I likewise offer my stuff there.
” I have whatever arranged in my closet a bit like the store in Paris, by colors. I’m very arranged. I like to have all the sports jackets together, all the long coats together, all the long dresses together, all the brief gowns together. I understand where everything is. It would be impossible if I didn’t arrange everything like this. It’s quite funny due to the fact that my mother, when she pertains to my home, she’s like, ‘Where do you have this t-shirt? How can you even understand where is this, when you have a lot of various things ?!’ It’s insane, but I actually remember where whatever is.
” Also, when I have a lot of brand-new things that I have not used yet, I put it in another part of my closet, so I remember– because, in some cases, if you blend things you have actually currently used with the new things, suddenly you resemble, ‘These are things I haven’t used yet and I’ve had it in my closet for 6 months currently!’
” I like truly like to find new brand names in my everyday. It’s a little bit my job for Vasquiat. If you remain in style, you have to be on Instagram because it’s the method to make people discover your brand. I spend a lot of hours on Instagram. It’s not even if I post and everything– it’s due to the fact that I actually like to discover these brands. There’s lots of them hiding everywhere.
” When I travel, I stroll a lot in the cities. I go a lot into new stores. I also examine online stores a lot to see brand-new brand names. The most popular thing and the easiest method to discover a brand name? It’s Instagram.”
