A full-time chemical engineer and entrepreneur, Izzy Benmbarek already has quite the desire for creating, especially as he sits as one of the founders of the (newly launched) travel-based app, Wandure. Often times, if not all the time, Izzy would openly express that fashion isn’t his strongest suit. This is all the more we wanted to have him as part of #RevealOttawa. He joined us on the set of Reveal to showcase his affinity for minimalism, and how he would usually go about style.
Tell us about yourself – who is Izzy?
My name is Izzy and I’m a chemical engineer. I’m also one of the founders of the newly launched travel-based mobile app called Wandure.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m a very big fan of minimalism, and that evidently translates in my sense of style – from the more formal looks, down to my casual, everyday looks.
On what his inspired his choice of outfit and how the overall look communicates his personal style.
As I mentioned earlier, I’m a very big fan of minimalism. To me, less is certainly more, and I think my outfit definitely reflects that since it’s basically just a simple look of a suit jacket/blazer on a t-shirt with no flashy colours whatsoever. This is normally what I find myself reaching for – the more minimal pieces, regardless of what it is.
What do you think about Mario Uomo’s collection?
I quite enjoyed Mario’s designs mainly because of the fit. It seems to have a nice medium between European and North American – so not too lose, and not too fitted. It’s just right!
