"For me, having a contemporary style means first and foremost choosing simple designs that adapt to the trends, without for that matter being like everybody else. I take the best of fashion and make it into my own style, keeping things hassle free. In other words, I'm always ready to improvise. That's why my outfits are just as suited for an art exhibition as for a baseball game. Simple and easy."

"Elegance is a way of thinking. And I apply it in all things. I'm not the type to buy things on a whim. Even if top hats suddenly became all the rage, count me out. I prefer classic elements that stand the test of time. You just have to look at a photo album from the 80s to see that certain styles do better than others!"
"Retro accessories, vintage furniture and state-of-the-art technology: I like having one foot in the past and the other in the present. My ideal day? Go window shopping in second-hand frock shops and retro boutiques, listen to a record, read a good novel... as simple as that. For me, fashions from the 70s and 80s are as trendy as the latest styles when you know how to put them together, except for a few unsalvageable errors!

"Except for making cookies, I hate cookie cutters. I have eclectic tastes in music, ranging from classical music to obscure underground bands. I like poutine and raw oysters. Contemporary art and mangas. Things that take you by surprise and trigger emotions. I also like to be avant-garde, even if it's more risqué than the norm. I think fashion is a form of self-expression and, most of all, it spices things up."
"For me, having a contemporary style means first and foremost choosing designs that are simple but with a personal touch. It's also keeping things carefree and being prepared to improvise. I enjoy simple things such as taking a leisurely stroll through the city streets, restaurants and cafés. Wherever life takes me, I don't want to have to think about what sunglasses to choose."
"I guess you could say I have a practical side. I like to plan things, take projects by the horns and leave nothing to chance. I avoid buying things on impulse, but I steer clear from anything drab or beige! I look for classic lines that will stand the test of time, with a touch of personality. One thing is certain, the classic lines never go out of style. You just have to look at your high school year book to see who got this!"
"Retro accessories, vintage furniture and state-of-the-art technology: I take the best of the past and present and make it into a style that reflects who I am. I go through a phenomenal quantity of vinyl records, but I have the latest smart phone. I love culture, music and independent films. In my world, hits from the 70s and 80s are just as appealing as the latest releases. I'm all about mixing it up!!
"I'm not afraid to go beyond the trends, even if this takes me out of my comfort zone. I like anything that takes me by surprise and provokes emotions, without discrimination. A Hungarian feature film, in black and white, with sub-titles? Bring it on. A zombie movie? Anytime! I like being ahead of my time, even if it's more risqué than the norm. I think fashion is a form of self-expression. What would be the point of all looking the same?"
"In summer, the city comes alive. The shows, the crowds, festivals, spur-of-the-moment walks, events: for goodness sake, get off the couch! Restaurant? Picnic? Road trip? The answer will always be yes. I like styles that reflect this energy, that follow the trends and can adapt from the city to the beach. Always, modern colours and shapes are my allies. Summer is not the time for drab."

"I'm not the greatest athlete in the world, but I like being active and, most of all, I like it when things are moving around me. In other words, I like styles that can go from the park to the terrace. Have you ever tried running with glamour sunglasses on? It's a "special" look. Have you ever had a drink on a terrace wearing your orange sport glasses? It's weird. That's why the versatile active look is perfect for me."
"Design, clothing, accessories: I've always liked beautiful things. I'm very committed to my work, so when I go out, these are prized moments of relaxation for me. I'm not exactly the outdoorsy, wilderness camping type… but take me to a play or a cocktail party and I'm in my element! The glamour look is just a way to surround myself with beautiful things. To be at the height of fashion, with a few bold statement pieces that make all the difference."

"In sports and in general, I don't do anything halfway. I go all out and I love being where the action is. But let's get one thing straight; being athletic doesn't automatically mean shapeless sweat pants and old T-shirts! That's why I choose looks that are as high in style as they are in performance. Jogging, yoga, biking: sport is a big part of my life. When I feel good, I feel like nothing can stop me."
