YOU SPEND YOUR TIME BETWEEN STOCKHOLM, PARIS AND MUNICH. HOW COME? AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST WITH EACH CITY?

I work as a digital marketing consultant and I started my career in Paris working with influencer marketing in the fashion industry. After almost two years, I started to work with an agency in Stockholm. And now I am based in Munich working with clients such as BMW and MINI. I have a big love for those 3 cities: I love Stockholm because of its forward-thinking, Paris because of its creative vibes, Munich because of its arts and techno scene.

YOU RUN MAISON BEAULIER – DESCRIBE MORE!

Maison Beaulier started as an art installation project in a private residence. I curated artists, musicians, photographers, designers for a private vernissage. Somewhere between a house party and exhibition, the event aimed to create, almost ‘welcome-home’ space for creatives of different disciplines to meet, exchange ideas and get inspired. Now I am working on a new edition which will take place in Munich.  

WHAT WAS THE LAST ART EXHIBITION YOU SAW AND WHERE?

The last exhibition I saw was called Good True Beautiful, masterpieces of Salon Paris from Musée d’Orsay. The exhibition was at Kunsthalle in Munich.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE GALLERY?

Stockholm: Fotografiska.

Paris: Centre Pompidou.

Munich: Haus der Kunst.

STYLE SEEMS TO COME EASY TO YOU – WHAT’S YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO FASHION?

I enjoy fashion much. It gives us the ability to express our individual and collective identity. I found it very fascinating how clothes can express so much and influence how we relate to each other. Each culture or sub-culture has its own style code which reinforce the collective and reaffirm individual identity.

WHERE DO YOU BUY YOUR CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES?

I am a big fan of Swedish fashion brands. My entire wardrobe is only Swedish brands. I see myself as local supporter. I wear everything between independent designer such as Aspire by Choke to big brands such as Acne Studios and Our Legacy. And my accessories come from All_Blues, Nividas, Toteme Collective, Acne Studios, Eytys and soon OH MY EYES.

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST STYLE INSPIRATION?

Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto.
