Where were you born?
In Hilversum, the media city of the Netherlands, just outside of Amsterdam.
Where do you live?
In Stockholm, in Vasastan.
If money was no object, where would you live?
I would have a canal apartment in Amsterdam, a hillside summer house in Ibiza with a view of the sea and a loft apartment in downtown New York.
Which are your favourite Stockholm stores?
Nordiska Galleriet for great modern and contemporary furniture; Nitty Gritty Stockholm, a great multibrand concept store; Beyond Retro, Stockholm’s biggest and best vintage store – and the J Lindeberg flagship store.
Do you have a favourite local café?
For breakfast I love to go to Albert & Jack’s café in Gamla Stan, it’s a small café overlooking the water.
Where do you take out-of-town friends?
Stockholm is a great city to walk around so I always like to show them the best Stockholm has to offer, starting with a walk through the old town, hopping on one of the island boats to Vaxholm and enjoying a great Swedish seafood lunch and some sunbathing and swimming, followed by a shopping tour through SoFo with all its great small independent boutiques, vintage stores and cafes. If there is time, a visit to the Moderna Museet museum of modern art.
Where do you like to celebrate?
Do you have a favourite Stockholm walk?
Stockholm is filled with great parks and surrounded by water so there are endless places to stroll and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I love to walk around Djurgården, especially in autumn to look at the spectacular colours.
Which is the city’s best landmark?
In my opinion, the amazing archipelago with its 30,000 islands.
Which do you think is Stockholm’s best museum?
The Museum of Modern Art.
Can you reveal any secret spots?
One of my favourite places in Stockholm during summer is the secluded rocky cliff in Hagaparken, which is great for swimming. Many people gather on the rocks having picnics, hanging with friends and enjoying the sun. For me, this is the ultimate Swedish summer experience.
Any advice for visitors to Stockholm?
Take a boat trip into the archipelago and visit one of the 30,000 islands, a true Nordic experience!
Which is the most treasured piece in your wardrobe?
Where to start? I have several for different moods. Definitely my favourite pair of selvedge jeans, which are almost falling apart, but I love them. Also, for sure, my Loro Piana made-to-measure, 100% cashmere suit in midnight blue.
Which clothing items do you buy regularly?
Good quality basics: white tees, tank tops, briefs and cashmere socks.
What was your most recent expensive purchase?
A pair of Alden black Cordovan leather shoes.
Which is your favourite shopping destination?
New York and Tokyo – both totally different and amazing.
