Tell us about a woman who you find beautiful and inspiring? My girlfriend Vanda Jacintho, I think she is very beautiful and creative – she inspires me, but sometimes she can be a little witch! Ha ha
Which accessory do you like to wear to complete your silhouette? My vintage Rolex Cellini.
What do you collect? As a child I used to collect coins, notes and stamps (I still have everything intact). Nowadays, I have just started to collect furniture from the incredible Brazilian designer Sergio Rodrigues – I’ve got my first 7 pieces last week.
What object do you cherish most? My computer of course – it’s like my child.
If you were a colour, what colour would you be? White.
What’s your favourite smell? At the moment I am in love with ‘Sugi’ – it’s a fragrance from a collaboration between Monocle Magazine x Comme des Garçons – I also LOVE the packaging!
What’s your favourite dish? I love Ceviche, but everything related to Japanese cuisine interests me more than any other cuisine.
Recommend us a book that changed your life? ‘Raster system’ – for me it’s like a bible of the graphic design world, every designer should have one in their library.
Recommend us a film that has stayed with you? The first film that comes to my mind is ‘Wuthering Heights’ by the director Andrea Arnold based on the classic novel with same name. It’s a British story about love and passion between the 2 main characters Cathy and Heathcliff – in this film their love is very raw. The scenes are very sensitive. I love the moment when we see them riding a horse together and watch Heathcliff breathing in Catherine’s hair. My favourite song is also Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush; it’s all linked in my mind…. I like the feeling of this romance… It sounds a bit cheesy also. Ha ha ha <3
What piece of music defines you? As mentioned above, Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush, but it also depends on the moment, I am a very sensitive person when it comes to music; so sensitive that I prefer to listen to electronic music because I know the feeling I am getting from it – it is always a kick, a good crazy one, so I don’t get melancholic.
Tell us about the most amazing place you have travelled to? The craziest place I’ve been to in my life is called “Robot Restaurant” in Shinjuku – it’s a themed restaurant/bar featuring a raucous pop-culture show with robotic monsters, dancers and lasers. A lysergic trip!
