The Monkey Bar in New York, the food is delicious and the service impeccable.”

VACATION CHOICE

“I like to go to the northern part of Panama on the Pacific coast. It is immensely beautiful, wild and remote.”

TYPE OF BAG

“It all depends on what kind of meeting I am going to. If it is super serious I have my father’s old Hermès satchel, and if it is more casual I have a rucksack.”

FAVOURED BRAND

“Obviously my favourite designer is myself for LimoLand . The clothes are colourful, comfortable and friendly.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“I simply can’t choose as my list is too long. But I like women who are elegant but not overdressed, and they must be intelligent, fun and more than anything they must be non-smokers.”

STYLE ICON
