What are your interests/hobbies?
My hobbies are ice-hockey, fashion and sports in general.
Current Occupation or school that you attend?
I‘m currently studying Sports Business Management in Duesseldorf, Germany.
How long have you been into fashion?
I got my first pair of sneakers at the age of 12 and ever since I started following up on fashion. So yeah for about 10 years.
What got you into fashion?
Mostly rap music, I listened to a lot of Snoop Dogg, NAS, A$AP Mob, etc. when I was younger and I started to dress like these guys.
How has living in Austria shaped your style and your fashion sense?
Honestly living in Austria didn‘t really take a big part in shaping my style. It‘s more the US- American scene that shaped my style and I always try to get some inspiration from other fashionable people on Instagram. In Austria, I always was just the kid, who dressed differently than the other people, but I‘m comfortable with what I‘m wearing so it‘s not a big deal.
Where do you find your inspiration for your style? And what influences you the most?
Like I said mostly on Instagram, which is a great place for fashion inspiration because there are many people with a great taste of fashion. Another way to get some inspiration is Facebook Groups like THE Basement or Verband Botanischer Gaerten (if you‘re not in you should check them out).
Who is your fashion spirit animal? Who inspires you? (artist, athlete, actor etc.)
That is definitely A$AP Rocky. I think he‘s the best-dressed human out there.
What are your favorite fashion pieces? (hats, belts, hoodies etc.)
My favorite fashion piece I own is the Supreme x Stone Island Anorak from SS15.
What are your favorite brands?
Supreme, Vlone, Stone Island and Gosha plus for Shoes it gotta be Nike, Checks over Stripes fam.
What current fashion trends are you loving right now? Which ones are you hating?
I like the colorful outfits of the past summer and Outfits with Vintage Rap Tees or Vintage High-End Brands. What‘s a no go for me is the Balenciaga Triple S, I just don‘t f*** with those.
The most important piece of an outfit is ____? Why?
I think every part of an outfit is just as important as the other part, only a well thought-out outfit is a good outfit in my opinion.
Do you have a dream fashion piece? (a specific coat, belt, pants etc.)
Yeah sure my biggest grails atm are the Supreme X The North Face Duck Camo and the Nike Yeezy Red Octobers.
What are your goals and aspirations with fashion? Where do you see yourself ending up?
I just wanna keep growing and inspire people to wear whatever they like and don‘t give a shit what others say. People are always going to be jealous and hating, that‘s just how life is.
