Quick fire Q&A

Quick fire Q&A, Nick

Describe your style in 5 words Comfortably-chic, funky, effortless, on-trend and original.
Where would you like to wake up tomorrow? Ibiza.
The best decade in the history of style was: 50’s or 60’s, as many of those trends are currently being re-created and adapted to suit a new era ie the preppy-look (geeky glasses, bow ties, cropped trousers and loafers).
The film I should have starred in is: Gladiator.
The song that could have been written about me is: Rock the Kasbah by The Clash.
When I tell my friends I’ve been selected as one of Time Out’s 20 most stylish readers they will: Hopefully agree with Timeout.
The acronym that describes me is: FAB - Funky and Bold.
The secret to style is: don’t be scared to try something different.
A perfect day would be: full English breakfast, afternoon hops in 93ft east (bar in London) followed by a night in DC10 Ibiza.
My profound thought for the day is: Carpe Diem (As per my arm!).
Massive meals or light bites? Massive meals.
Rock star, film star or sports star? Film Star.
Sunrise or sunset? Sunset.
Burj Al Arab or Burj Khalifa? Burj Al Arab, it’s an iconic part of the Dubai Skyline. Amazing piece of design.
Desert or beach? Beach.
Mall or market? Market, you cannot beat looking round Greenwich market on a summer’s afternoon.
Hot or cold? Hot.
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook.
Trainers or shoes? Trainers, Converse All Star – 90 years old and still going strong.
