“I am trying to be more effortless, when I dress up. I wear whatever I feel I want to wear. It is quite a mixture of things that make me feel like having a vibe.”
Theo, 7 December 2019, Amsterdam
Can you describe your style?
T: I am trying to be more effortless, when I dress up. I wear whatever I feel I want to wear. It is quite a mixture of things that make me feel like having a vibe. I don’t have any boundaries, so I’m trying to mix my masculine side with my more feminine side, when I dress up.
What are you wearing?
T: My pants come from A.F. Vandevorst. They are designed by Ninamounah, when she was working for the brand, and now I am working for her, that’s how I found out about it. My shoes are Stella McCartney; I am a huge fan of her work and what she has been doing towards sustainability. My bag is Valentino. And this is a coat I stole from my cousin. I like that it says ‘backstage’ on the back. I also wear a t-shirt that I bought at a flea market.
“Also people understand that it is really crucial to be sustainable now and try to make effort to switch from mass production fast fashion techniques to slow fashion. Nowadays, people are more aware about what they wear and what they spend their money on.”
What is your relation with fashion?
T: I study fashion design, so that’s how I have been introduced to fashion and how I tried to develop my aesthetic and my taste. What I feel about fashion is that we are at the good stage at the moment. More and more people understand more what fashion is about and all these designers trying to make big impact. It is all very political and you can pass so many messages through fashion. Also people understand that it is really crucial to be sustainable now and try to make effort to switch from mass-production fast-fashion techniques to slow-fashion. Nowadays, people are more aware about what they aware and what they spend their money on. I feel like Dutch culture is extremely careful of what they wear.
Why are you at De Kloffie Markt? What brought you here?
T: I seen it on Instagram actually and really I loved it. I really like buying second-hand items, just because I feel like it is good for environment as well and those garments you can find here are more far more interesting. They are just more unique.
