Please introduce yourself. (Name, age, location and website)
Dany Dos Santos, I’m the man behind the nickname Alkarus. 23 years old, student, blogger and model occasionally. From France.
When did you first develop your passion for style?
Quite naturally. I always take care of my style, but I decided to exhibit it on the web from the moment I found my own style, my own fashion taste.
What does style mean to you?
This is a lifestyle, a way to express our personalities and our moods.It allows you to choose how to express yourself in anyway, style is a reflection of your life. It will grow through your meeting, your travel and what you see in the streets everyday…My style is just my life’s footprint!
How would you describe your style?
I can’t specify my style. Often I mix several basic styles. I don’t like to constrict myself to one style, that makes it tasteless and boring.
Who or what are your style inspirations?
My daily life. I like to look at the style I see in the streets/web.,whatever the style. That allows me to see what I can do, but above all what I must avoid doing because the most important thing for me is to avoid the dress error. If you are not mistaken, your look will be great.
What one item should everyone have in his or her wardrobe?
Creeper brogue black shoes
What are your style do’s and don’t?
For style don’t, try to avoid dress error like a discordances of colours, style do’s, wearing what you like, and strive for a minimalist look on the whole.
High street or high end? (why)
Both are complementary. High end for essential pieces like shoes, jacket or suit. High street to grow your wardrobe easier with basic and trendy pieces. (sweatshirt, shirt, trousers etc.)
Do you think it is important for people to have a sense of style?
Like painting, sculpture or writing, style is a choice of expression. The fashion style is my choice and some people choose other ways, so I don’t think having sense of style is important for everybody.
What is your style advice?
Make the difference between fashion and style. Fashion is ephemeral therefore dangerous to base your style on it. Create your style about yourself, then use fashion as a way to shine from it. This allows you to have a great timeless style. Only advice I can give.
Where can people keep up with what you are getting up to?
People can check out my instagram ALKARUS, my blog www.Alkarus.com where I broadcast my outfits, or twitter @dsdany.
