25, German. Founder and CEO of The List
What’s your favourite wardrobe item and why?
Military camouflage loafers. They finish off every classic outfit with an interesting touch. They are like a piece of art you stand in front of wondering if it has been overdone; then you come to the realisation that it is delightfully unique.
How would you describe your style?
In one word, contemporary.
What does your style say about you?
My personality is most definitely reflected in my style. It shows a classic gentleman with an interesting and wild artsy side. Unique and different.
What’s the best style advice you can give to our readers?
Stay true to yourself and be unique. It’s good to be influenced by trends, but never follow them.
What is the best style advice you have ever been given?
My father told me that dressing well is a form of good manners.
How has your style changed as you’ve got older?
Interestingly, getting older has brought me back to my roots. For example, wearing my first bespoke suit when I was a year old.
Does your style change when you travel?
Definitely not. Style isn’t bound to a certain place; it is an expression of yourself, wherever you are. I am my own muse.
What essential three wardrobe items can you not live without?
Loafers, blazers and button-down shirts.
Who’s your style icon?
Gunter Sachs, as he was rich in style, manners, class and ultimately influenced the menswear of today.
What is your favourite outfit?
I actually don’t have a favourite outfit per se. Every outfit I wear reflects who I am and my style.
