Notting Hill. It reminds me of being back in New York. It has a creative buzz and is filled with cool bars and restaurants.
Favourite place for brunch:
The Breakfast Club. I either go to the one in Soho or Clapham – it’s perfect place to get breakfast all day. It has a great ambience, awesome staff, and most importantly does an epic breakfast!
Best coffee in London:
Allpress in Shoreditch. I am not really a coffee drinker, but I have heard that this place is the shit.
Favourite gallery or museum:
Westminster Abbey. A phenomenal building that has an amazing history.
Favourite place to shop:
Selfridges. It houses some of my favourite brands and is a place where you can get everything you will ever need.
Favourite place to find inspiration:
East London. When it comes to fashion, I love to people watch in East London, the street style is so creative and young.
Best London destination for a date:
London Zoo. It is one of my favourite places to hang in London, and it’s a fun place for a date.
Hyde Park. Summers in Hyde Park are the best!
Favourite food market: Borough Market. It has every type of cuisine you could imagine. My girlfriend and I often go there when we are hungover and spend all day going from one stand to the next.
Your sanctuary in the city:
Serge HQ, in my office, and work environment. It’s where I culminate my entire creativity.
What inspires you?
My inspiration is my immediate surroundings: the chaotic, culturally diverse and volatile urban atmosphere.
This season I’m loving:
Camo. For me it never gets old.
