Myself! And my YSL couture.

Trends. Yay or nay??

I?don’t follow rules and I never follow trends.

Sterility and predictability bore me. Creativity and individuality excite me.

You’re a master at layering. What’s the key to doing this well?

Culture.

What decade do you identify with most and why?

The period between the wars. I loved the details [of the clothing].

How would you define your style?

It’s a mix of the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s with a bit of Disco Blitz mythology. 

If you could trade wardrobes with any woman, past or present, who would you choose and why?

Marie Antoinette for her wardrobe’s abundance and the endless possibilities to play and re-create with her clothes.

Street style bloggers love to photograph you riding your bike in mega-high heels. What’s the trick to doing this without falling down or looking ridiculous?

It’s all in the legs, darling.
