What are you wearing right now?

A plain red T-shirt, an APC sweater with stripes, some Uniqlo jeans and black Converse. I uniform-dress in the same styles from day to day.

Who's your style icon?

The former 1950s Hollywood heart-throb Montgomery Clift (right). He was brooding, sensitive and, above all, he was dapper.

What can't you live without?

My Max Bill watch, which I like very much. I hate being late, so it helps. And it looks great.

Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.

On my first day at kindergarten, I wore a bright turquoise V-neck, and a tartan orange-and-brown shirt with matching trousers and loafers. I picked it myself. I felt that outfit had a lot of conviction.

What's in your wardrobe?

There are a lot of jeans, some T-shirts, various cardigans and pairs of glasses. Like I said, I uniform-dress.

What's in your washbag?

Nothing at all, really. Just some soap.

If you could live in any century, style-wise which would it be?

I think the scene in Berlin between the two world wars was impeccable, style-wise: lots of tuxedos and waistcoats, and lashings of old-school glamour and slightly faded grandeur.

How often do you look in the mirror?

Not that much, I don't think. It never really occurs to me; I wouldn't want to get vain.

Any guilty secrets/fashion confessions you want to share with us?

A real guilty pleasure of mine is one of my most recent purchases: a pair of oxblood-coloured patent leather loafers. I feel like Michael Jackson in the 'Billie Jean' video.
