Wearing platform sneakers inspired by the Spice Girls.

Describe your style?
I’m drawn to statement pieces and usually work my outfit around one. However, when I’m in the mood to go all out, I will not hesitate to wear more than one statement piece together. After all, life’s too short to dress safe.

Irada, Joseph, Y-3, Uniqlo, Opening Ceremony, and Adidas.

Favorite designers?
The Triratanachat sisters, Issey Miyake, TC Sibal, and Yohji Yamamoto.

Favorite shops?
Joseph, Calvin Klein Platinum, Adidas, Y-3, and LCP in Manila; Nobody Has To Know, That Store, and Baskets in Amsterdam; LaCentral and Auzmendi in Spain; Colette, Deyrolle, COS, and Marni in Paris; Irada in Thailand; Homme Plisse, Opening Ceremony, Dover Street Market, and Kitsune in Japan; and Shakuhachi in Bali.

Fashion philosophy?
There are no rules to fashion.

Closet staples?
Workout clothes, comfortable travel wear, statement pants, and shoes.

Favorite accessories?
I don’t leave home without my wedding ring, wedding band, and diamond earrings from my mom. I also love my hats and hope to grow this collection on my future trips.

Personal uniform?
A cropped top, statement pants, sneakers, and a backpack.

United Nude shoes and Christopher Kane shoes

Current fashion wish list?
Anything from Mochi.

Prized possession?
My dog, Pintxo.

I can’t live without…
Red wine.
