You are part of the new generation of people always looking for convenient accessories that make your daily life and actions more comfortable. But you don’t want to compromise your style.
You are one of those who believes that wearing a 3-piece suits, a classic tie and a heavy briefcase everyday at work is part of the past. Instead of waiting for the casual Friday, you consider that jeans, minimal sneakers and sometimes a blazer with a stylish pouch should be the new business casual outfit.
You've got a so called “active life” with full weeks and busy week-ends. Always on the move, you need to wear comfortable clothes and accessories that can be worn for different activities within the same day.
Weather it is a vacation or a business trip, you enjoy travelling light, free from all unnecessary things. Your bag and outfits should be limited to the strict minimum in order to pack in a few seconds before departure. All items you take with you should be light, smart, convenient and highly comfortable to create this feeling of freedom.
It doesn't matter if your are French, English, Spanish, German.. You are a citizen of the world and your actions have a global impact. Instead of buying cheap products that fade out quickly, you prefer to consume less but better. The price should be fair and the quality excellent in order to have an item that can have a real longevity.
You are a person with a positive mindset that doesn’t take yourself too seriously. Yet smart, you are not afraid to challenge the conservative codes imposed by society. And you like to stand out with some accessories, even colourful ones.
You are conscious about the world's ecological issues. You've already started to change some habits. But you are so busy that the best you can do is to choose carefully what you buy.
