This year, we are celebrating our timeless Classic collection as a homage to the classic things in life. From passions, people, places and interests – your imagination and creativity is the only limit.
What’s Classic to you?
Moving from Shanghai to New York was in many ways a big step for me. This is where my international career really took off and New York truly is the City of dreams. To me, crowded cities are relaxing. I simply love the bright lights, the mix of people, the bustling streets, and the tall buildings.
Physical exercise is crucial for my mental wellbeing, and from an early age, gymnastics and dancing has been my passion. Allowing myself to move freely is a way for me to express a range of emotions. It enables me to let everything else go and helps me stay focused and live in the present.
Life is all about having fun and not taking everything so seriously all the time. Skateboarding is liberating and I love the sense of freedom. It's just me and my skateboard, unattached, no ropes. It makes me feel alive.
My guitar is the instrument and possession that has been with me through some of my best and worst days. From Busking Hollywood Blvd to playing in front of a sold out Arena, it's always been my classic companion in life. My writing process always starts with guitar and vocals. The timber of my warped guitar, that has been shaped by my years of playing it, cuts straight into my soul and my true emotions. I owe every song to my guitar.
My days are usually filled with meetings and obligations, and the juggling act of balancing work and personal life is a constant struggle. I love to see my companies grow globally and go from idea to execution, but it requires me to be careful with my energy. Sometimes, when my days are hectic, I like to go somewhere where I can wind down and just enjoy my personal down-time. Those short breaks allow me to re-charge and stay focused.
To me, #MyClassic is about being myself and do what brings me happiness. I love following my dreams and working hard, but yoga and meditation is just as important for me to live a balanced and happy life. Only I know what is right for me, and only you know what is right for you. When listening to my inner voice and embracing yoga, I feel thankful and radiant.
Self-care is crucial and loving and caring for yourself is extremely important. To me, #MyClassic is a homage to old school skincare routines inspired by Hollywood glamour. As a true beauty nerd, the time I spend in the bathroom is always time well spent. When I am in there putting on face masks I can let go of the world outside and just focus on what brings me a genuine sense of joy and self-confidence.
