Who or what last made you laugh out loud.
Haha that's an easy one! That was backstage during the ENLIST look book shoot when everyone was pulling off my 68 jean and I fell off the chair and landed on the floor. Never a dull moment in fashion!
Who or what inspires you
There are really a lot of people and things that inspire me.
Your words to live by
Always be myself.
What cause or causes do you feel passionate about
In life my main passion is obviously fashion! But in terms of causes I like to help, I am a huge lover of animals and there is a small animal organisation in Holland that I support - Its called Stichting Dierenlot (www.dier.nu).
Best piece of advice you've ever been given
That's a tough question because my mum says I never listen... I think you need to listen to every piece of advice you are given, and then make your own decision about whether or not to take it.
Your London in an hour
It is such an amazing city, offering so much to see and do, but if I had just one hour, I would go to the East End, where many of the photographer’s studios are based, and would order a large portion of fish and chips – it tastes better in London than anywhere else.
Your favourite London view
Without doubt the Old Street area, heading towards Kingsland Road - it is somewhere I visit time and time again when I’m in London, just walking and wandering and soaking in the atmosphere. It always makes me happy when I see that view.
Are you working on anything at present
Maybe I am…… you will find out soon!
Describe your style
It depends on the situation but on the whole I’m more of a casual guy….and if you have a great, well made jacket, you can smarten up any look in an instant.
Whose style do you most admire, past or present
I really can't pick one…….
Favourite piece from the ENLIST collection
The jackets stole my heart - they fitted so perfectly, I never wanted to take them off!! I also loved the Knit Jacket in Midnight – so perfect for all the travelling I do. And the more beachy outfits really suited my style – I cant wait for next summer to get some of the swim shorts..
