Five Questions For Daniel Peters
FashionBeans: What was your most recent fashion purchase?
Daniel Peters: Most recently, I picked up a pair of the classic Old Skool white leather Vans Era.
What was it that made you buy them?
You can’t beat a fresh pair of all-white trainers. I spotted them in Size Covent Garden for an absolute bargain so they had to come home with me.
Vans Era PRM, £57 at Size?.
What’s your next purchase?
I think I’ll be investing in a Dent De Man Eau de Vie bird print coat. It’s a great piece for adding a little bit of style personality.
Dent De Man Eau de Vie coat, £450 at BBS Clothing.
What’s your current daily essential item?
I can’t help but wear a sweatshirt on a daily basis at the moment, namely a grey marl number. It’s my staple piece and I have an assortment of colours to keep things from looking stale.
We recommend Sunspel for high quality basics.
What would be your dream purchase this season?
I’m lusting after a new suit, and in particular have my eye on a grey A. Sauvage number.
A Made-to-Measure service is available from A. Sauvage.
