32, French. Patron and Co-founder of Bistro des Arts
What’s your favourite wardrobe item?
I have a few key items I adore: a pair of Ted Baker shoes with different coloured laces, a cap to go to the beach in and definitely my tailor-made white shirts for work; they fit me perfectly and I feel comfortable and confident in them.
How would you describe your style?
My style is quite simple; I customise it to each occasion. You will see me wearing golf whites for golf, flip-flops for the beach and a nice suit for a wedding. I like to add something quirky to each look, but never anything complicated. It is important to focus on basic pieces and combine them with a little touch of je ne sais quoi, which shows off my personality. For example, a different coloured lace, a bracelet, or a nice watch.
What does your style say about you?
Precise, passionate and in the moment. You will never see me wearing a non-ironed item, as I am a complete perfectionist. I like to have the right outfit for each occasion; I would never go running in Converse or wear shorts to an evening out. I like precision and I think my style reflects that.
What’s the best style advice you can give to our readers?
Just be who you are — your style is reflected in your personality. Everyone should feel comfortable with who they are and what they wear. Comfort is everything to me, which is one of the reasons why all of our employees’ uniforms at Bistro des Arts are tailor-made.
How has your style changed as you’ve got a bit older?
I choose what I like and what suits me, rather than what the label says. My style has evolved and become more formal. When I was younger, my style was skateboarding and snowboarding orientated. It was fun, comfy and relevant to my age as well as my hobbies. But my look now reflects my business, passion for life and European heritage.
