Gael is a trendy, Doc-loving director who talks to his cat. i-D caught up with him dans la rue for a quick natter before he headed back to work.
Gael Houdin, 24, London
What do you do? I’m a director of documentaries. Tell me about the first pair of Docs you ever bought? I needed shoes that I wouldn’t throw away after a month. Why do you love the Docs you are wearing today? I’ve always wanted to have some, they remind me of the 90s. Why do you think Docs have bridged generations and transcended trends with their signature style? Good quality, still fashion. If your Docs could speak what would they say? Find me a boyfriend. Describe your sense of style? Independent. When are you most comfortable? Reading in my bed. How would your friends describe you? Funny and smart. Tell us something about you no-one else knows? I talk regularly to my cat.
