How would you describe your personal style? Who, what or where is the inspiration behind your style?
My style is very simple, straightforward and casual. I love monochrome, so I have the blue section, the brown section, the green, the black, the white. I love to add a colorful highlight with an accessory, like a bag. Regarding inspiration, I am surrounded by lots of colors and patterns every day and I love it, but also it is kind of overwhelming, so I just like it clean and simple in my closet.
How does travel influence your style?
I sometimes get adventurous and inspired by colorful traditional textures and patterns and even wear them when I am travelling. It is inspiring to experiment and adapt in different cultures, but that doesn?t change my style at home in general. I love to find traditional or special accessories that bring a bit more tension and a break from the classical look.
What city do you have an endless love affair with?
London. I first arrived twenty years ago after a 24-hour bus ride from Germany with two sports bags, one full with my stereo. Even before I lived there, I dreamt of it and also after. It never stopped, I just feel so home in this city.
Can you share your top three favorite spots for eating, drinking, and shopping in your hometown?
Pappa e ciccia is a great Italian restaurant around the corner of our shop (Prenzlauerberg) that offers organic, local ingredients combined with homemade pasta or creatively arranged salads in an inspired and cozy environment!
For a nightcap I love going to a small bar in Kreuzberg, which seems to be always open when I need it. They have an area where you can lounge, meaning taking your shoes off and lie on the floor on cushions, drinking your gin tonic.
For Shopping - the Mauerpark Fleamarket on Sundays!
