“I’m a film director, I make fashion films and commercial films.

My style is very laid back, but I definitely think about what I wear. I like to wear really masculine things, but mix it with something that’s more feminine. I like to have clean things on, like sneakers or something black but also wear something that’s a bit weird, kind of more of a statement piece. So I always try to do that and I always wear the same jewellery everyday.

What attracted you to this jacket?
“I think I like surrealist things, I love Magritte, he’s an amazing artist and there’s something about just the simple look of it, with that face, I like that, it’s kind of a surprise and it’s reversible, so on the inside, it has a different face.”

What’s something about fashion that you find challenging?
“I work out of my studio, I work in mixed media, I paint and use it in my films, so if I go to the studio, I want to wear something I can move around in, that can handle getting a little bit dirty. Sometimes I want to go out for drinks after that, I don’t know, I need to wear clothes I feel cozy and comfortable in, but sometimes I like to dress up more at night, like how do you do both, but it works out, I just end up wear sneakers to a nice restaurant.”
