For the last couple of months I've been interviewing some cool guys and sharing their thoughts on life and fashion within the Stylish Dudes section. Last month, the interviewee was UK 60's soul trapped in modernity Charlie Vandenburg. This month, I interviewed french blogger Clément Lasserre, a sports addicted cool photographer and well dressed guy. Enjoy.
// Durante los últimos meses, he entrevistado a chavitos buena onda y comparto sus ideas de la vida y moda en la sección de Stylish Dudes. El mes pasado, entrevisté al inglés Charlie Vandenburg, un alma sesentera atrapada en la modernidad. Este mes, el turno fue del blogger francés Clément Lasserre, un chavito bien vestido adicto a los deportes. Disfruten.

Tell me a little bit about yourself:
I live in Dax, a little town in the southwest of France. I'm in Borda's High School in Dax and I hope to graduate in July. I'm crazy about sports, especially basketball and fitness. I also appreciate arts (photography, painting, literature...) AND I'm, of course, fond of fashion and modeling!
Describe an average day of your life:
That's too hard to answer because all of my days are different.
What are you really passionate about?
I'm really passionate about sports. I practice EVERY DAY. It's like a drug and I'm addicted to it!
When did you become invested in fashion, how was that process?
I owned a photography page on Facebook and when I posted photos of my looks, some people wanted me to sign on LOOKBOOK.NU aaaaaaaaaaaaaand... I did it!
I really like your outfit photos; they seem to have an ever young but rebel vibe (which is awesome). What's your main inspiration while doing your photos and; does anybody help you take them or you do it by yourself?
Well, my inspiration comes from the 70's/80's and the British culture. I'm crazy about vintage/retro products but I enjoy grunge and chic clothes.
At the beginning, I took the photos myself with a tripod but now, my father helps me and it's better. Hahaha!
What's the fashion/arts scene for guys in France? Are you a part of it?
The Paris Fashion Week is THE event, THE place to be! I'm not a male model who is walking in fashion shows for brands but I hope to become one of them... One day.
I'm just 18 years old and I don't have a lot of experience... I remember when the first brand contacted me to wear their clothes, it was... AWESOME!
What are some of your favourite musicians, books, TV series and artists?
Music: The Popopopo's, Skip The Use, Metronomy, Crystal Castles, Alt-J, BB Brunes.
Models: Jon Kortajarena, Sean O'Pry, Cara Delevigne, Francisco Lashowski.
Actors: I don't watch movies or TV.
Writers: Laurent Gounelle, Charles Baudelaire.
Photographers: Théo Gosselin, David Olkarni, Dave Hill.
Painters: Agnes Cecile, Edward Hopper.
Who would you consider a stylish person from this time?
I think that Rihanna is one of the most stylish singers in the world. Nonetheless, there's bloggers who are amazing, such as Luanna Perez, Lina Tesch, Ebba Zingmark, Jessica Christ, Juliett Kuczyska...
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What will you be doing?
In five years... Mhh... Well, I think I'll be in college, in my last years. Or maybe in another country (UK for example).
Share a dream/goal/ambition that you would love to accomplish soon:
Become a professional model... By the way, if an agency sees this interview, don't hesitate to contact me: email@example.com.
When you're feeling pressured or overwhelmed, what activity helps you re-find your center?
Spots, again and again. Usually, when I feel oppressed I play basketball or I work out!
What would you say to someone seeking general fashion advice?
Be yourself and wear what you want to wear. It's very very very important to feel better in your skin!
