How would you define yourself?
I like to think of me as a fashion traveller who loves the real world. I appreciate the simple things in life and love to connect that with fashion, clothing and fun.
What do you do to relax?
I often do Yoga, ride my Harley and love to surf. This mixture of hobbies brings both the adrenaline and the peacefulness I need in my life together in a very balanced way.
What do you do for fun?
Nothing screams fun like spending time with my kids or trying big waves.
Is there anything you would like to do but never seem to have the time?
Not really, I am lucky enough to always be able to do what I need and like to do.
Why did you decide to do what you do?
I was always interested in fashion and learning about what people wear and why. I love travelling around the world and get involved with different cultures and my clothing line is the perfect result of that mixture; fashion + culture.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve worn?
Too daring to share!
What’s on your iPod right now?
The Rolling Stones are my all time favourite band and I always take them with me everywhere I go.
Who is your dream dinner date?
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I go to the Church.
If you could get on a plane right now and go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Hawaii. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the sun, surf, go to the beach and meet with friends.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
My kids, they mean the world to me and I’m a very proud parent. Spending time with them reminds me that there is still happiness and honesty in the world.
What’s the perfect accessory?
The Malibu beach bag.
Champagne or gin?
Water or juice.
What’s your favourite Christophe Sauvat item?
The Colombian Necklace, it’s a unisex piece that fully represents the Christophe Sauvat lifestyle: ‘Jungle Fashion’.
What is it about Comporta that you like?
I decided to move to Comporta 10 years ago because I think it’s a very special place that brings me the peace I need to relax and to work. I love its ambiance of beautiful rice fields and the empty beach.
