If you were to produce a collaborative collection of clothing or sneakers which brands would you want to work with?
Nike, Gucci, I like Balenciaga, FEAR OF GOD, although I’m pretty open to designer brands. it’s kind of like, if I see it and I like it it doesn’t really matter what brand it is.
What was the last item you bought and why?
I bought an oversized Givenchy trench coat, I have always wanted that look but I’ve never really had the chance to get it but I went shopping a few weeks ago and I saw it and liked the style of that oversized stuff, especially now that it’s coming towards that time of year.
If we were to look through your wardrobe what kind of brands would we find?
Gucci, FEAR OF GOD, Alexander McQueen Palace, Rick Owens, I’ve got a few different pieces to be fair!
When you look at footballers with the matching kits, often players want to be more individual and they usually do that through the haircut, what do you do to stand out?
Well, I got mine this morning! I’ve been injured but I’m coming back with my first game being Tuesday so I wanted to come back with a different image. I’ve never died my hair before so I thought I would try something new!
