Read our interview with Alex - style blogger from Vienna.
We asked sustainable style blogger Alex to share some of his favorite eco-brands and shopping spots so we can all (try!) to imitate his clean, no-frills take on vegan style. Read on for his answers and check out justinekeptcalmandwentvegan.com to learn more!
What is your name, age & blog?
My Name is Alex, I'm 22 years old, I am one of the founders of a start-up called HELFERLINE and I sometimes blog as a guest writer on www.justinekeptcalmandwentvegan.com about fair and vegan fashion for men.
What are your favorite (vegan/sustainable) clothing brands?
My favourite brands are Armedangels, Wunderwerk, Ethletic, MUD Jeans and of course Hoodlamb ;-)
Where do you find your style inspiration?
I find my inspiration from people on the streets, friends and what I see now and then on social media.
What is your most treasured piece of clothing?
I am really looking forward to getting my winter jacket by Hoodlamb, I guess this will be my favourite piece of clothing for the next months or so.
What are your favorite (vegan/sustainable) stores?
In Vienna it's Muso Koroni. In Berlin there is so many different shops that I can not remember a particular one. I must say I do not shop as much either online or offline. I have not bought myself any clothes except for what we show on the blog for more than two years now. I just thought I got enough and stopped spending money on it.
What are your favorite instagrams/blogs?
My favourite instagrams are justinekeptcalmandwentvegan (what a surprise), marcusvaleur (camera guy of Jon Olsson), chrisburkhard (most amazing nature photography), thesartoralist (best streetstyle instagram out there), tonimahfud (he draws so good) and nurielmolcho (maybe the best looking IG for me in Vienna).
