Style summarised in a few words A mashup of raw denim, biker jackets and Danish clean basics — and always a hat.
Sneakers or boots? Boots with jeans, sneakers with pantalons.
Three things you would bring to a desert island? The babe, our baby boy and my hammock — for me the most important things in life.
Favourite travel destination? New York. It’s the best place where you can find everything you crave!
What do you love most about Amsterdam? The small little brown bars on every corner of the street, and the fact that you can stroll from the Jordaan district to the Amstel in less than 30 minutes. It’s feels more like a big village, not a city.
What’s your best fashion advice? Don’t try too hard. Don’t push yourself. Choose quality over quantity. Be aware of sustainability. Choose brands that relate to what or who you are.
How did you first hear about DENHAM? When they opened the first store (10 years ago!) I had some denim freaks in my inner circle and they were super hyped by the selvedge from DENHAM.
What do you like about the brand? The people, the philosophy, the need to be sustainable, the way they collaborate with such great talents and big artists.
What’s your favourite DENHAM style? The dark blue selvedge jeans are essentials, but I also dig the designs made with Candiani Denim — they’re edgy, have a nice fit and are really recognizable.
How do you style your jeans? Mostly with boots, but sometimes with strange Vans or indigo Converse, plus an oversized denim or biker jacket.
Best tip you’d give to a tourist visiting Amsterdam for the first time? Get lost, talk to strangers, be kind, and never ever rent a bike! 😉
