Johannes Huebl was an event chair at the amfAR GenerationCURE Summer Solstice event on Tuesday night to support AIDS research, HIV education, treatment and prevention.

The model and Olivia Palermo’s husband recently attended London’s Men’s Fashion Week and told FN that he’s going to put the London collections on his semi-annual schedule. “It’s a nice industry — it’s us boys, [and] it’s not too much fuss,” he said.

When it comes to spring ’16 trends, Huebl is not down with mandals.

“I am not a big fan of sandals,” said Huebl. They look good on some people, but they just don’t work for me. I like loafers. I design loafers and Chelsea boots for a German company. I have a very classic style in shoe design, so sandals haven’t been in my wardrobe.”

Here, Huebl answers FN’s 3 questions.

1. How many pairs do you personally own?

“Over 100.”

2. Heels or flats?

“Flats. I have an OK height. I don’t need heels!”

3. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?

“I’d be a monk strap. Because it’s a very cool, classic shoe that can be worn casually but elegantly. If a shoe were to represent my outfit, then I’d be a monk strap, but if it were to represent my personality, I’d be a tennis shoe.”
