Where were you born?
Where do you live?
I get up in Eixample but spend the rest of the day in the city centre where my workshop is located.
What’s best about your neighbourhood?
It is where I was brought up and apart from that it has everything: it is well-situated and well-cared-for.
Which is your favourite area of Barcelona?
Every corner in the city is special and perfect for any occasion. I love to live in the Eixample, enjoy the day in the city centre, have a swim at La Barceloneta beach, have dinner in the Gràcia neighbourhood and go partying around Marina.
If money was no object, where would you live?
In any warm place.
Which are your favourite Barcelona stores?
Doshaburi on Lledó, close to Barrio Gótico; Paco Rueda on Paseo Picasso; Holalá on Riera Baixa, for vintage clothes and, of course, my own shop, KR Store on Montsió, opened two years ago, where people can find all my collections.
Which are your favourite restaurants in the city?
I love La Piazzenza on Avenida Gaudí, a perfect Italian restaurant to have dinner while admiring the Sagrada Familia church; La Llesca in the Gràcia neighbourhood for truly Catalonian dishes and Teranga near Via Laietana, the best for African food and really well-priced. And if you are a sushi lover, Kibuka is your place. Don’t miss it!
Do you have a favourite local pub?
La Cala del Vermut, very close to my store.
Can you recommend any local dishes to try?
Escalivada, a mix of roast vegetables, onion, tomato, aubergine and green pepper, dressed with olive oil and salt. Delicious!
Where do you take out-of-town friends?
Las Ramblas, the highlight landmark of Barcelona, full of people from all over the world; it is a very multicultural place.
Where are the best views of Barcelona?
From the top of Parc Güell. I can spend hours trying to recognise streets and houses.
How do you like to travel around?
By Honda motorbike.
Which is Barcelona’s best building? And its best museum? For me they are one and the same: the MACBA, the city’s museum of contemporary art in an incredible, very modern building.
Do you have a favourite walk in the city?
Through the narrow streets of the Poble Nou neighbourhood.
Any advice for visitors?
Watch out for pickpockets in crowded areas and the underground!
What can’t you live without?
I couldn’t live without my city: Barcelona.
