Stylish dudes: Leon David

So, here's the deal. I launched a new sub-section for Stylish dudes. I've been interviewing some cool guys and sharing their thoughts here. Last month, the interviewee was Aussie blogger, always dapper, Ben Galbraith. This month's is 16 year old, super cool, Leon David from Germany.

// Creé una nueva subsección de Stylish dudes. He entrevistado a chavitos buena onda y compartido sus respuestas aquí. El entrevistado del mes pasado fue el bloggero australiano, siempre bien vestido, Ben Galbraith. Este mes es el súper buena onda, de 16 años, Leon David, de Alemania.

La entrevista no tiene traducción porque no me gustaría modificar las palabras de los entrevistados. Así que saquen el traductor interno que tienen, ja.

Tell me a little bit about yourself:

I'm a 16 year old, photography obsessed, student from Germany. I also love fahsion (who'd have thought it?), riding my motorcycle and watching movies. Living in Germany, respectively the little town I'm from, is okay. I mean, it's not really bad but also not very good.

Describe an average day of your life:

Uhm, on a school day, I have to get up very early (about 6 am), getting ready, driving to school, doing homework/study, meeting friends and/or take a few photos (mostly for Lookbook.nu) and watching an episode of O.C. California or some such.

What are you really passionate about?

Photography. And fashion.


How do you feel about blogging?

I'm very new with this blog-thing, so I'm never sure in which style I should write or, above all, about what, haha. But I hope to get better and inspire people with my blog.

When did you become invested in fashion; how was that process?

I really don't know. I became invested in fashion about a year ago but I have no idea why. Maybe, becasue I spent more time on websites like Tumblr or Lookbook.nu.

Who would you consider as a stylish dude from this time and why?

I know, that sounds so stereotyped and shitty, but it would be a guy who doesn't care about what people think and tries to find his own style. And he would definitely wear skinny jeans, in my opinion one of the biggest trends of the past decade. 

You're really young and have pretty cool style. How's the fashion scene in Germany for guys under 21?

I don't think there is a fashion scene for guys under 21. There's a general fashion scene but I'm not really into it. The only thing I can tell you is that in the past few weeks I had many great conversations, which simply developed via Facebook/Lookbook with boys my age all over Europe. 


I really like your photo diaries. What's your main motivation for doing them?

Thank you very much. The answer is, again, my love for photography. I just love trying to capture a city or country I visit with my photography so people get a pure impression of it. 

When you're feeling pressured or overwhelmed, what activity helps you re-find your center?

Mostly sleeping, haha, or motorcycling. 

What are some of your favourite books, TV series, musicians and artists?

Musicians: Left Boy, The XX, The Kooks, AC/DC, Eminem, Modest Mouse.

Books: The catcher in the Rye; The boy in the striped pajamas. 

TV Series: O.C. California, 90210, Gossip Girl, The Big Bang Theory.

Artists: Elliot Erwitt (photographer), Sebastiao Ribeiro Salgado (photographer), Cristoph Schaller (photographer and fashion blogger). 

What would you say to someone seeking general fashion advice?

Spend some time on it. Get inspiration on the internet, on the streets, in the stores, in order to find your style

Thank you very much Leon! Be sure to catch him on his blog: Round Metal; or hype/fan him at his Lookbook.nu page. I'm pretty sure he's going to be someone big, real soon!

Hen.
