28, Muttonhead Co-Founder, Sunpocket Sunglasses Rep, Stylist at Later Magazine

“[At Muttonhead] we manufacture locally using sustainable fabrics to create unisex sportswear that can be worn by anyone and everyone.”

MVP: “A caramel leather jacket I bought on Portobello Road in London eight years ago. Like a fine wine, it gets better with age.”

Everyday Must: “My engagement ring. It’s over 100 years old.”

Designer Roster: “Phoebe Philo, Hedi Slimane and Mark McNairy.”

I’m Always On The Hunt For The Perfect… “Antique gold rings and Navajo silver bracelets.”

Ultimate Accessory: “Nike leather Air Maxim 1 SPs. They’re available in really limited quantities, and I’m a sneaker freak.”

Represent: “Hastings-Sunrise ’hood! It’s one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, and in the last couple of years we’ve seen a resurgence, [with] new restaurants and businesses entering the area.”

Hometown Labels: “Strathcona Stockings and Beth Richards.”

Design Fix: “I’m biased, as Board of Trade Co. was the first store in Vancouver to carry Muttonhead, [but they also stock] my favourite Reed Wilson Design doormats and Hansel From Basel socks.”

Vintage Booty: “[At] Attic Treasures I purchased a ’60s glass kettle and mid-century Danish chairs for my dining table.”

Diner’s Choice: “The steamed truffled pork dumplings and Ba Ba’s Root Beer at Bao Bei are out of this world. The owner, Tannis [Ling], played a vital role in the recently revived Chinatown Night Market. They’re an amazing crew doing great things for Vancouver.”
