‘Style is so personal for me. I choose to feel an emotion and evoke a persona when I select what I wear each morning. I love this “Parisien” sweatshirt from Maison Kitsuné as Paris is one of my favourite places, and it holds great memories.’

‘I’d describe my style as classic and everyday - but [also acknowledging that] you shouldn't take yourself too seriously. “Whatever” means just go for it and do what you want. It’s about the “forget it” mentality that pushes you along.’

‘The phrase “A desire to establish as unique and independent” describes the spirit of the heron birds that are the inspiration behind the Heron Preston label. It’s a sentiment I strongly believe in. It’s important to be authentic and real, especially in these online times. I am very proud of the fact that I’m independent and unique in what I do.’

‘Logo knits are a super-cool statement without effort. I love to style them with unexpected pairings like trousers or, if I’m feeling lazy, tucked into a pair of Levi’s always works. I think the slogan is supposed to be a reminder of positive affirmations. We live in a world where complaining is the norm, and to wear something that is positive and happy sets good intentions every time you look in the mirror.’
