“Most of the times I am trying to combine tech-looking garments with a professional kind-of look.”
Aron, 2 November 2019, Amsterdam
Can you describe your style?
A: It’s very difficult to explain it. I like techwear, but I am also into more casual. Most of the times I am trying to combine tech-looking garments with a professional kind-of look.
Can you describe your relation with fashion?
A: Fashion, for me, constitutes a way of expressing yourself, but also expressing your vision on the world. There are some people that tend to look only at Off-White and the hype stuff, but most garments are far more interesting – where they come from and how long they have been in the cycle. That’s why something like De KLOFFIE Markt is
Why are you at De KLOFFIE Markt?
A: Honestly, I started going to De KLOFFIE Markt a long time ago with my friends, to see what we can find and look for older garments, which you cannot buy
Why do you buy second-hand or slow fashion labels?
A: I buy second-hand, because it is cheaper. I am Dutch and every Dutch person cares about money. As I said before, it is a shame to buy a sweater or t-shirt or whatnot from brands like COS or ZARA if you can buy vintage or designer piece for pretty much same price. And I feel like those pieces you can find here at De Kloffie Markt are much better quality and you don’t support fast fashion this way. I think it’s a really important nowadays to keep the world going in environmental sense and we can do so by choosing slow-fashion.
