How would you define the word “style”?
"Style to me is something that lasts. There’s also the subdivision one should make between inner-style and exterior-style. Today, sadly, everything is about exterior-style, and very little about inner-style. This causes many so-called ‘stylish’ people to believe they are more stylish than they actually are."
So what exactly is this inner-style?
"Inner-style to me is how you treat people as well as how you behave. It’s about being able to be the same around everyone; being fair; being honest; being brave and having morals and ethics. To me it means that whether I’m talking to you, the president, or my cleaning lady – I’m the same - I don’t change. It’s something that you rarely see in people and the industry today, but to me it’s key. If you have appearance, but you don’t have substance..uh…it’s like the foam in the cappuccino – it fades away."
