Joe Jonas recently spoke to ‘InStyle’ magazine about DNCE’s KSwiss Campaign, Working with Charli XCX and Game of Thrones!
Read the full interview below:
What was the most surprising aspect of designing shoes?
“It’s a long process. It’s weird when you look at different samples but you can’t really see them in person … You’ve gotta be really patient and wait it out. And I’m just really excited to finally have them so I can share them with friends.”
You’re wearing several polos in the new campaign. Are you a polo or tee kind of guy?
I’m a T-shirt kind of guy. When it comes down to every day, I’m usually in some T-shirt.
Band tees seem to make up a large part of your wardrobe. Where do you find them?
Typically I find a lot in Japan, like in the Harajuku area.
Whose style do you love?
I think it’s always rad when I see certain artists sticking to one thing, like Chance the Rapper, when he was rocking strictly overalls. I think it’s really creative. When it comes to really dressing well, I feel like Ryan Gosling never seems to not look good. He always looks very sharp, red carpet or not.
Everyone loves him.
It’s hard to find a person who doesn’t like him.
You’re wearing high socks with sneakers in the campaign and that’s a very polarizing combination in fashion. What’s your stance?
I’m not opposed to it. I don’t do it often, but look at Tyler, the Creator, he does it really well. As long as you’re doing it in a creative way or maybe not all the time then I think it’s a good look.
Congrats on starring in Charli XCX’s new “Boys” music video. Do you normally eat pancakes for breakfast as you do in it?
Luckily that was a special occasion. And I don’t typically eat pancakes. But every once in a while, you just gotta go for it. I’m kinda boring. I eat the same thing every morning. I like oatmeal. I go more for waffles over pancakes, if that’s really the hard-hitting news.
There’s more places for syrup, you know? They have little spots. Holes. The pancakes, it just slips right off.
What’s the most common question fans ask you?
They’re like, “Where are your brothers?” They assume that I’m with them all the time. Then there’s like, “You’re taller then I thought!” Stuff like that. But typically it’s just cool to hear stories about how they’ve come to like certain music or certain songs and why they’re drawn to those songs.
So do you watch Game of Thrones regularly?
Oh yeah, I’m caught up. It’s the best show.
Do you have a favorite character, other than Sansa Stark [girlfriend Sophie Turner]?
I would say it changes by week, but I mean, Jon Snow is always gonna be a favorite. He’s a badass. He’s come back to life.
Would you ever guest star à la Ed Sheeran?
I think I’m too big of a fan. I’d probably just watch.
