Elio Heres, 27
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
How would you describe your style? Extravagant, chic, vintage, androgynous
Who or what inspires your style? I always try to inspire myself constantly. Fashion is a way to show your own personality. So I guess that I’m my bigest inspiration. Besides that I think I get inspired by the people around me, pictures on the internet, shop windows, extravagant people in the nightlife and everything that catches my eye.
What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel most like yourself and why? I think it’s the bow-tie because it’s so chic and sophisticated, but loafers give me the same feeling as do high-waist pants at the moment. Difficult to pick one piece of clothing because my looks are all a totality.
What is your dream job? A Youtuber with a sufficient following and tv presentator.
What’s something you read about related to fashion recently, that you found interesting or thought provoking? That luckily some American celebrity’s embracing the fact that womenswear doesn’t have to be just for women. Everybody should be able to wear whatever they like no matter what gender it’s originally intended for. If you like it, it fits your body, wear it!
What is something most people don’t know about you? That I’m a big skyscraper fan, I even spend hours and hours reading about it on an online forum.
Do you have a mantra you live by? If so, what is it? Always ask yourself: If you’re not yourself, than who are you?
