I am shooting for W magazine with Emma Summerton.
What makes a Bohemian?
Well, I guess I was born Bohemian.
My parents were both quite Bohemian.
Someone who's such a...
It doesn't matter what they do,
they can come in so many different kinds of ways
but they're not afraid to express themselves artistically.
I think it's a way of live.
Living through the emotions.
It's no strings attached.
It's to do with honesty.
It's to do with being yourself.
Your way of life and outlook
but also your sense of style.
Not accepting the rules
of what's happening in a certain time.
The spirit is what makes someone Bohemian.
And the clothes follow as a consequence.
The splendor of life.
The splendor of life is freedom.
Being surrounded by beauty, by art.
This kind of lifestyle for me, like,
living a splendor, a splendor life.
I like to feel free in my clothes
and I like to feel that my clothes enable me
to live a very spontaneous lifestyle.
I'm not the girl wearing the perfect outfit
with white jeans and high heels
because I'll destroy everything within a matter of minutes.
It's probably even before I leave the house.
My personal style, well I suppose, is quite Bohemian.
Somewhere between Vera, sh-ka and Coco Chanel.
I just love wearing very natural and casual clothes.
Simple, elegant and functional.
Instinct, I go with the flow.
I think the splendor of life
is friends and family.
Feeling love and being loved.
Having my family around me.
Splendor of live would be to love.
Is to, I can't say that on camera.
