What You Wearing

Matt Hardwick choses he clothes wisely.

What are you wearing right now?

"I'm in the studio, so jeans and a t-shirt (usual script) both from All Saints I think."

What are you favourite designers, labels?

"Raf Simons designs really cool shirts and trousers. My all time favorite designers are Copperwheat Blundell who make amazing high end sportswear. For shoes it has to be Dirk Bikkembergs, who also designs amazing knitwear."

Favourite stores / boutiques and why?

"For designer clothes, I find that it's best to go to the designers' shop. When you go to the large chain stores you tend to get the safer material that they can sell in bulk. However, Harrods' menswear section is quite good. I also love Doverstreet Market in London."

How do you like to shop?

"I tend to go shopping every other week but don't always buy. I tend to go with my girlfriend Nina. She is a better judge of what looks good than me. I don't think that she has stitched me up to date."

What's your tried and tested club outfit?

"I used to just wear jeans and a t-shirt. The smoke in the clubs meant that clothes just got hammered. Since the smoking ban, I think that I have started to dress for the occasion a lot more."

Most treasured item?

"My Dirk Bikkembergs leather jacket. In terms of leather jackets, it's perfect. It's really thin so I can wear it in the summer and in clubs. I bought it about 8 years ago so despite it being stupidly expensive it's stood the test of time."

What are you up to?

"I'm just finalising my first solo single, as yet unnamed, and I'm really chuffed with the way it is sounding. My track with Mark Pledger, called 'Fallen Tides', is out on Anjuna Beats and is getting a great reaction. DJ-wise, I seem to be here, there and everywhere. I just played the Official F1 Party in KL and DJed from the heli-pad at the Petronas Towers... that was amazing. I'm really looking forward to Gatecrasher's Summer Sound System too."
