Perfume: Series 3 Incense: Jaisalmer by Comme Des Garcons. 'It's such a unique scent. I've never smelled anything like it before.'

Designer: 'My own brand, Ju$t Another Rich Kid. I love the fit and fabric of the tees and I always get compliments when I wear them.'

Jeans: 'This one's tough. I like Seven for all Mankind, but they wear out way too fast. I have a great pair of Levi's Capital E dark denim jeans that I love, but the dye has ruined everything I own that's white or light-coloured. I need something new.'

Trainers: Nike Air Jordans and Stan Smiths.

Watch: 'I use my mobile phone as a watch. I really like ToyWatch, though. They're super cool.'

Sunglasses: 'I just splurged for my birthday and bought Gucci sunglasses.'

Car: 'I'm into the idea of promoting eco-friendly transportation such as bikes. My 'car' is a silver Giant mountain bike. It costs me nothing to use and doesn't pollute the air.'

On the reading list: V Magazine, biographies, Vanity Fair, FAKE,, WAD.

Music: Anything by Joy Division, Justice, early Nirvana, The Hours, My Bloody Valentine, Pink Mountaintops, Rihanna, The Unicorns, Secret Machines, TV on the Radio, Velvet Underground.

Work of art: 'I'm such an art lover. It's hard to pick one thing. I love Jeff Koons, especially his balloon sculptures.'

Charity: 'It's amazing how rich the US is but so many of us don't have health insurance, especially the artists, designers, and self-employed. It's embarrassing and unhealthy.'

Getaway: Jones Beach on Long Island.

Always on hand: a pen. 'I never leave home without one.'
