From Tom Ford's five baths a day, to Karl Lagerfeld's diet coke addiction, designers' idiosyncrasies have become as famous as, well, their designs. And they're one of our favorite forms of entertainment.
The latest to join the eccentric-creative-genius club is Peter Dundas, who revealed his daily schedule to Harper's Bazaar for their My List feature. Among some of the revelations are that he has a serious sweet tooth, collects taxidermy and flies to work. Everyday. Talk about a jet set commute!
Read on for the best bits from the interview.
On commuting by airplane:
Seeing that my apartment is in Paris and I work in Florence, I usually go to work by airplane; it's an hour-and-a-half flight. Really, I am in an airplane four or five times a week.
On sleeping in the nude:
I'm a light sleeper—I usually sleep for four to six hours and wake up at 5:00 A.M. I prefer sleeping naked.
On his ice cream habit:
I probably eat ice cream 330 days a year.
On his favorite hobby:
Exercise is my favorite hobby, and I do 90 minutes a day whenever I can.
On his taxidermy collection:
I own 20 to 25 pieces of taxidermy; between whole deers, boar heads, croc heads, plus the birds, there are quite a few. I also collect insects. I don't know anymore how many I have. A lot of the animals have been relinquished to the basement, as someone managed to convince me that it might be disturbing to [his dog, bizarrely named] Hannibal.
