Where are you from? Paris FRANCE

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? I love to cook, and I love to be alone ( Virgo way of life )

What’s your go-to sneaker? Nike Sacai Triple white v2 ( yeah surprise )

How many sneakers do you have? When you love you don’t count ? Ahaha kidding probably over 150 now.

When styling yourself, what comes first? Shoes or outfit? Depends, really. Sometimes what comes first is the sneakers, especially when I have fresh pair. But it can also start with a jacket or a suit!

What’s one sneaker that is on your wishlist? Cream Off White Jordan 4s

What sneaker is on your wishlist? Impossible to pick one sorry : my top 3 on my wishlist ; Vomero ACW Redox , DIME x NB 860V Silver and the CDG Dunk black

How would you define yourself in 3 words? Spontaneous, colorful, and open minded.

What’s a must-have clothing item everyone should own? A very strong jacket ( Sacai / kapital etc )

If you had to pick only one shoe currently in your closet to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be? Im tempted to say Suicoke or Birk cause since summer Iv been wearing these a looot but let’s say Nike Sacai Waffle white version. I’m wearing a lot of colorful clothes, so a white sneakers is the best.

Common Ace wants to uplift YOUR voice! The sadness of our world, is that Theres so many cause to fight for. List is unfortunately super long, but I would like to use my voice to talk about Immigrant rights, that are negligent all over the world. People tend to forget that immigrant are people, that have right. I’m horrified by how people don’t seems to see how bad the current situation is. But also why ? Why people take the risk to dye for ? People are drowning in the sea for better life, and EUROPE is closing eyes. It breaks my heart. I would use this, to encourage people to understand why, to read about the subject. There’s a great show : stateless that is talking about Immigration in Australia. Story and picture is amazing. I did cried a lot at the end, cause I’m unfortunately aware that’s not a fiction but indeed a reality for people today.
