But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Rasmus Baun Bartram, aslo known as Ras, has been on our radar for quite some time. The Copenhagen born and breed kid started working in fashion at the early age of 11 and is now a full time freelance, with Instagram as his platform. Ras is always going somewhere and therefore asking him about his style this upcoming summer season was a given. Especially since he isn’t your ordinary summer lover (I can so relate to that?).
I am definitely more of a fall/winter type of person and I do not really like going to the beach and doing other summer activities. I find it way too hot and unproductive.
My go- to pieces for summer
I have jumped on the short shorts trend this season and sweater vests with nothing underneath.
What you’ll see me in this season
A pair of docs, short shorts and a tank top. Very basic. But I spice it up with some jewelry.
In my beach bag you’ll find (or not find)
I rarely go to the beach but a bucket hat and a bottle of wine? Lol
My ultimate summer destination
Always Paris. Paris in every season -–but if we are talking full on vacation mode, probably Greece or Italy.
Lots of sunglasses and lots of button down shirts.
What I always pack but never wear
T-shirts. I rarely wear t-shirts even when it’s hot outside. I find it a bit boring and always end up going for something more unpractical but more fun.
Sun screen. No one wants to be sunburned!
