How would you describe your personal style?
I am mostly drawn to things when I know a bit about it. If I know the person behind it or if I know what the brand stands for, it’s things that have a meaning that I love. You see me mostly in sneakers (I have tens of pairs of Nike Roshe), it’s part of my current lifestyle. I am mostly just running around, being in the kitchen and all that stuff. So currently I am more on the relaxed side of fashion.
During my time in Brussels I was a completely different person, mostly suited up for big meetings. You develop a different style every time you move. You adjust to what is there, to what is available. Although there are certain things that seem to follow me everywhere like 10 different pairs of black jeans for example. The change feels good when it comes to personal style, I feel much more comfortable now.
What do you like most about moving around?
By now it always adds up with just being with other people. My network of friend gets broader and broader and bigger and bigger with every move we make. At this point in life you really start to appreciate those relations. Even when you move on I always make sure that the ones that are close to me stay close. We travel a lot to still see those friends.
I also like the new discoveries. I like being new to a place. It’s always full of discoveries, a bunch of new things to see. It’s about new things and unknown; those are my go-to’s. It’s not just about the move it’s about the way you have your life set.
(Note; And just right then and there Masa explained the concept of “Unknown Curiosity”. Thanks for that!)
Do you ever think of moving back?
Going back to Slovenia once or twice a year is always kind of eye opening. It all started with a feeling that I just had to leave because it became too small but now it’s just this mind-blowing, stunning country. Whenever I arrive back I ask myself why I’m not here but then, a couple of hours later, you realize again that there are only 2 million people living there and it kind of feels like a village.
So I do think about moving back sometimes, because of the quality of life there but going towards the US is also an option. I was very hesitant at the beginning, I didn’t think it was my cup of tea but we’ve spent quite a lot of time at the west coast, John’s parents live in California now, so it’s always nice to go back. The racial intermix, the weather, nature, it’s a very tempting mix. We will definitely still make a move but at this point we don’t see it as leaving Antwerp for good. We’ll still leave a little foot here.
