Profession?

Salesperson @ Veritas

What are you wearing & where from?

Pants and shirt from H&M, shoes vintage, accessories Zara.

Favourite designer & style inspiration?

Can’t choose! Dries Van Noten, Marni, A.F. Vandevorst, An Demeulemeester, Stella McCartney,…  I like ethnic and eclectic designs as well as minimalistic.

I like doing my own thing. Of course when I had the money my closet would be 50% Dries Van Noten…

What if you were an animal which one would you be?

I can’t choose between a cat and a fly.
I like cats because they don’t care what you think and they do what they like. I like the ‘in your face attitude’ of felines.
Living as a fly would be very interesting, you can sneak around and find out other people’s dirty little secrets. On the other hand, they don’t live very long. So, to answer this question, I’d like to be a cat.

What artist inspires you?

I respect artists such as Vincent van Gogh, choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, saxophone player Candy Dulfer,… Because they express feelings, thoughts, words,… through their art. And not only theirs, they represent our thoughts, our believes,… And of course they are SO incredibly talented!

What piece of clothing/accessory would you be?

An African inspired necklace. I like the colours and happiness that shines out of it.

What if you were a movie?

Into the wild.

What song would you be?

“Don’t worry, be happy…”

What if you were a city?

Paris! No doubt about that. Nice people, beautiful buildings (musée de louvre) and a perfect combo between interesting things to do and peace.

What’s your favorite quote?

A day not having fun is a day that you didn’t live.

What’s your favorite place to hide from the world?

I have two:  my room, with candles and yoga music and in a vintage store.

If you met an interesting stranger, what would you whisper in his/her ear?

Go to Paris with me…

Secret tips on where to get inspiration?

I see inspiration everywhere. When I see a happy kid on the street, but I also find inspiration in magazines, when I travel, listen to music. I believe that, when you open your eyes, you can see so many little things that other people can’t see and that makes me smile.

If you had a superpower what would it be?

I wish I could fly…

Who or what do you want to be when you grow up?

A happy person, not bittered. A good mother maybe. A person who is loved. And a better saxophone player! I think the process of becoming your best self is NEVER finished…

Secret ambitions?

To see the world. Learn from the people who are close to me, and, once again, to be a better and better saxophone player.

 

RECKLESS ANIMALS GOES CANNES PART 2

Of course I went style hunting in this beautiful city. I need to say that I’m very disappointed, I’ve walked the main street like a 100 times just to find those reckless animals… The most of the people were tourist… and like i was on the hunt in the afternoon,  most of the people were wearing beachwear.. So it was hard to find people with a casual fashionably look but I did my best and found these released animals. An adorable Swedish tiger, a hungry French tiger and these 2 wild Russian girls….

RECKLESS ANIMALS GOES CANNES- Meet Vintage Fox dude

When you hear Cannes, you think about celebrities, red carpet, money, jet-setters, glamour, La Croisette and many other stuff… And let’s not forget all the designer boutiques.
But beyond all that i found CHARLOT, a cosy vintage shop mostly for boys. The owner was a very inspiring guy who showed a lot of love for fashion and above that he has a great style, so immediately when I saw him I wanted to take a reckless picture of him.

He also explained me that the clothes he sells were all made in the USA. The most of the things he had in his store were some vintage stuff and some pretty collector items. I asked him to show me some of his favorite pieces and of course he showed me these cool collector items:
