FEATURED IN TELVA MAGAZINE


 

You can´t imagine my face when I saw the cover of Telva magazine April issue! Every time I land in Spain, the first thing I do even before leaving the airport, is looking for the new issues of my favourite fashion magazines. This time, with Telva magazine, I had a double surprise: The model on the cover was Alba Galocha and my name was right next to her! Nothing like seeing your friends growing and making their dreams happen! I´m very proud of you Alba, if you are reading this, you are not only inspiring other girls, but also many guys like me. You are so special.

When a couple of months ago they contacted me from Telva to propose a story of this magnitude I accepted without hesitation with a smile on my face, remembering the amount of summers sunbathing with my mother reading Telva magazine. A few weeks later I was running around my favourite places in Paris with Philipp Hohndorf (the photographer) and the wonderful Telva team: The Carette Cafe where I´ll have tea and chocolate macaroons while getting back to emails, the Eiffel Tower, the David Mallett salon (where I get my hair cut) or Place des Vosges, where we met Alba for a video interview (watch the video below). I hope you get your hands on this April issue, I hope you like the article and I hope that you find out things about me you didn´t know. And maybe somewhere in Spain there will be a 14 year old boy reading Telva with his mother, perhaps looking forward to someday being part of the fashion industry, and hopefully he will realize that dreams can come true.


No os podéis imaginar mi emoción cuando ví el número de Abril de la revista Telva! Cuando aterrizo en España lo primero que hago en el aeropuerto incluso antes de salir de la terminal es mirar si han salido ya los siguientes números de las revistas. Esta vez, con Telva, tenía sorpresa por partida doble: La modelo en portada era Alba Galocha y mi nombre acompañándola! No hay nada mejor que ver a tus amigos triunfar y comerse el mundo, estoy muy orgulloso de ti Alba, si estás leyendo esto, no sólo inspiras a otras chicas, también a muchos chicos como yo. Eres muy especial para mi.

Cuando hace un par de meses me contactaban desde la redacción de la revista Telva para proponerme un reportaje de esta magnitud acepté sin dudarlo con una sonrisa, recordando la cantidad de veranos que mi madre y yo nos habríamos echado en la hamaca leyendo números y números de Telva. Unas semanas más tarde recorría alguno de mis lugares favoritos de París en compañía de Philipp Hohndorf (fotógrafo de la sesión) y del maravilloso equipo Telva: El café Carette donde voy a merendar y contestar emails simultáneamente, la Torre Eiffel, el salón David Mallett (donde me corto el pelo) o la Place des Vosges, donde nos juntamos con Alba para una vídeo entrevista que podéis ver aquí debajo. Ya tenéis lectura obligada esta Semana Santa! Espero que os guste el reportaje, que con la entrevista descubráis una parte de mi que no conocíais (como por ejemplo por qué me llaman Principe, dónde y por qué estudié moda o cómo empezó mi trabajo con Louis Vuitton) y que en algún lugar de España haya otro chico de 14 años leyendo el Telva con su madre, quizá ilusionado con algún día formar parte del mundo de la moda, y vea que sus sueños se pueden hacer realidad.

 

Muchas gracias a todo el equipo Telva que ha hecho posible el reportaje, en especial a Elena López, Alicia Chapa, Sara Bascuñán y a la directora de Telva Olga Ruiz.

SPRING IN THE HOTHOUSE

Last week, during one of those trips for work to Madrid, a couple of friends and I visited the hothouse at the Botanic Garden. I love that place, I remember the first time I was there. I try to imagine what it would be like to be a bit like a hothouse myself.  To have that peace and that balance within oneself and to keep growing without anything bothering me. Not giving a shit about what is happening out there... Anyway, in there (I mean the hothouse of the pictures) is constantly...

LOUIS VUITTON AW2015

It´s quite hard to express with only a keyboard the way Nicolas Ghesquière overtakes himself each season. He projects the kind of woman that could come from a second parallel Earth, and what better way to confirm what I´m saying than building up something like a spacial station? Nicolas made us travel in time ans space without moving from Paris, and managing that while holding the reins of a house such as Louis Vuitton, whos whole identity is about traveling, is the...

FEATURED IN WOMAN MADAME FIGARO

Today is international Women´s day and stop for a minute and think about the women in my life, in everything I´ve learned from them. Women inspire us so much, they seduce us with their talent and beauty, dazzlr us with their sensitivity, improve any landscape, street or restaurant with their mere presence and, more importantly, give birth to other humans. I´m starting to think it should be their official day every single day. So I wanted to share with you this article from...
