How would you describe your personal style?
I consider myself a Mediterranean rebel rocker who loves 50s, 60s and especially 70s. I have never followed trends, I just wear what I personally love and I do the same creating hotel brands and with my party, Rock Nights. At the end of the day, I think it’s all about being faithful to yourself.
What are your 3 style essentials that you think every person needs in their wardrobe?
A Hawaian shirt, a western shirt and a Phix shirt, of course. Among these three styles of shirts, I have a collection of almost 500 units!
What do you like most about Phix?
The look of 70’s rock and roll style in an elegant way.
Best gig you've ever been to?
Depeche Mode in Barcelona 2006, Loquillo in Madrid 2017 and The Rolling Stones last year in Madrid.
One piece of clothing you can’t live without?
A good pair of Chelsea boots.
What's your proudest clothing purchase?
The original red western shirt that Patricia Arquette wears in the movie True Romance.
Is there anything you regret wearing? Why?
I have always been proud of what I used to wear, every decade has its own personality.
We're really inspired by music history at PHIX. What is a song you can listen to on repeat?
Dancing in the Dark from Bruce Springsteen, Cadillac Solitario from Loquillo or Slave to love from Bryan Ferry. Lately I’ve been listening to Tina Turner a lot and I can do it all day.
Elvis Presley, Loquillo, James Dean, Willy Deville and Bruce Springsteen.
