How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?
This year was marked by many ups and downs. But it was the year of breakthrough, started of course thanks to social networks (Ask.fm, Instagram & Facebook). Suddenly I found myself in the world of the Internet, where I began to constantly follow people of considerable importance in the fashion world.
What song have you got on repeat at the moment?
The Script - Hall Of Fame Ft. Will.I.am. I consider this song as a great motivation, in a few words; You can become anything, you just have to believe it.
What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style?
I think the key to a perfect style is simplicity and especially a look at the past trends. No extravagant accessories, T-shirts and shirts – simple, but makes you standout. Jeans, not very ripped and not too traditional – find a middle ground.
One tip to grow your Instagram account.
The important thing is to understand what people want to see – with quality.
What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?
In my opinion there is no the wrong style because everybody has a different style, but one of the things not so beautiful to see are the wrong matches.
Worst dating experience you’ve had?
I have never had any unpleasant meetings. (Luckily)
Any major plans for the rest of 2015?
Just a few days until the end of 2015, so I'm already designing something for a great start to 2016.
Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?
In my opinion, without any doubt, Mariano Di Vaio. He has a perfect style.
