Every month we interview people that inspire us and a lot of others. This time we got to speak with the Norwegian artist Sam Eghtedari, who’s current as a contestant for the new tv show – The Stream.
Tell us a bit about your background.
-I’m 24 years old, born and raised in Oslo, Norway. I’ve always been a creative person. From writing songs, directing music videoes, designing clothes to work as an actor / TV-host for Norways biggest channel, NRK.
What´s new? What are you doing at the moment?
-Lately I’ve been writing a lot of music for various artists. I’ve also made music for different TV-shows. Right now I’m an contestant in a new concept called The Stream, which will air on TV2 this fall.
We are sure that you´re inspiring a lot of people at all time. But who inspires you?
-Right now I really look up to what Pharrell Williams has accomplished. From singing / producing some of the biggest hits in history to doing collaborations with Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Adidas. I have a lot of people that inspires me when it comes to style. Everyone from artists like Andre 3000, A$AP Rocky and Kanye West. I also like to combine it with the artistic expressions from painters like Jean Michel Basquiat, Banksy and Takashi Murakami.
What is your most worn item?
-I think it must be my Adidas Ultra boost. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a more comfortable pair of shoes. I also have a pair of pants from the Norwegian brand AÚMA that’s super comfy. Since they’re unisex I recommend everyone to try them!
Describe your style.
-My style is very simple. For me it’s all about feeling good and comfortable in the clothes you are wearing. I think people see you as more confident and secure when you are wearing something you feel good in. I don’t like the term “hypebeast”, I feel like it’s easy to see when someone is trying to hard in 2016.
..and hows your style when you are on the TV-screen?
-When I’m on stage or on TV I like to combine the simplicity with something special like jewels, some rings or maybe a cool belt, nothing to much.
Can you share any style hints for our readers?
-Keep it simple, wear what you like and enjoy the summer<3
