How would you describe your fashion style and interior style in three words?
Fashion style: “Nun goes wild!”
Interior style: Austere, earthy and comfortable
When you’re struggling to get dressed — what is one trick you use?
I rarely struggle to get dressed, but I am extra fussy about what gets added to my closet. There are specific things I look for in clothes – I love crewnecks with perfectly tight-cuts or collars, I need nice sleeves with shoulder lines at the right place, there is a certain thickness or texture in materials I look for… etc. All the things that make me feel comfortable and confident.
Once they are in my closet, I find it really easy to put them all together.
What are you most looking forward to wearing for your « post covid » uniform?
I’m so excited to wear heels again! Not wearing heels for so long has been boring and physically hurting (because I have high arched feet). Light washed loose jeans, heels and a nice blazer is my all time favorite and I can’t wait to dress sharp more often.
What is the most treasured item of clothing in your closet?
All the pieces that I had a specific image of in my head – then took many years to find – are the most special ones. A navy vintage Chanel blazer, which has red silk lining inside and it can be seen ever so subtly from inside the sleeves, a Tyrol jacket from Bergfabel, a knee-length army jacket. I know I won’t be able to find similar things easily and I always take great care of them.
Who are some of your favorite designers — for both interiors and fashion?
I love Simone Rocha – her vision is so original and wearing her dresses makes me feel like a queen.
I admire Axel Vervoodt and Joseph Dirand for interiors.
