What is the first car you ever drove?

Bespoke - - VEHICLES -

Grow­ing up, one of our neigh­bours owned a ra­dio-con­trolled car and he let me have a go when I was about four or five-years-old. It was su­per fast, and my dad couldn’t be­lieve how good I was at driv­ing. I then be­gan to par­tic­i­pate in ra­dio-con­trolled car races hosted in a farm in the coun­try­side. I was at least ten years younger than ev­ery­one else. I have a good rest the night be­fore the race, and ar­rive at the track the next morn­ing full of pos­i­tiv­ity. Be­fore qual­i­fiers, I lis­ten to my favourite tracks, and pray for ev­ery­one to be safe. I al­ways re­main fo­cussed on the job at hand, to win the race, and ev­ery­thing else is just noise. Thanks to years of ex­pe­ri­ence, I’m able to com­part­men­talise what’s not im­por­tant at that mo­ment, and con­cen­trate on get­ting my­self and the team stand­ing on the podium at the end of the race. Men­tal power is ev­ery­thing. Tommy Hil­figer is an iconic Amer­i­can brand that was im­pos­si­ble to miss as a kid, whether you were into fash­ion or not. Fash­ion is a grow­ing love for me, and hav­ing at­tended the Tom­mynow run­way event for sev­eral sea­sons, I’m al­ways amazed at how the brand is able to rein­vent it­self with ev­ery col­lec­tion and through in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy. That takes a lot of cre­ativ­ity, and I’m su­per ex­cited to join the Tommy Hil­figer fam­ily. I like to stand out from the crowd, and Tommy Hil­figer’s cool, al­lAmer­i­can de­signs al­low me to add an ef­fort­less yet so­phis­ti­cated twist to my out­fits. From per­fectly tai­lored suits to play­ful and el­e­vated pieces, it’s a brand that caters to any oc­ca­sion. I’m a big fan of light out­er­wear, like the ver­sa­tile bright blue hooded jacket with rac­ing stripe de­tails from Tommy Hil­figer Sports­wear. I love the re­versible satin bomber jacket from Hil­figer Col­lec­tion, which can dress up any look. I’ve al­ways ad­mired how Tommy never gave up on his dreams of build­ing a global life­style brand, even when times were tough. I be­lieve that when you get knocked down, it’s not how you fall that mat­ters, but how you get back up, and Tommy and I both take life les­sons away from these mo­ments. Al­ways be­lieve in your­self, and don’t let any­one tell you that you can’t achieve your goals. Grow­ing up I re­mem­ber see­ing the iconic Tommy Hil­figer flag on clothes that celebri­ties wore, like hip-hop leg­end Snoop Dogg and Aaliyah.
