Everything Sebastiaan Pieter Groenen designs has a playful undertone. Weaving an array of subcultural influences, the London-based menswear designer explores the codes of youth and gay culture, bringing a thoughtful tone to his stripped back pieces.
With Christmas and New Year’s Eve on our doorstep, Sebastiaan has turned his hand to a special playlist for HERO. Lining up his favourite tunes, expect everything from Barbra Streisand to Troye Sivan.
Turn it up and get through the full on festive period – happy holidays, folks.
The Christmas Song by Barbra Streisand
“Such a great voice, so warm makes you feel right at home,” says Sebastiaan.

“I remember listening in the car to this with my dad and sister when we were small… my dad hates this song haha.”
Christmas by Cher
Waltz of the Flowers by Tchaikovsky
“I think every year at Christmas as a child I’d either see the Nutcracker or watch Fantasia so for me these are engrained in the seasonal cheer.”
Little Drummer Boy by RuPaul
“She has a new Christmas album out called Slay Belles but this is a classic.”
Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt
“She’s just so amazing, anything she sings turns into soft core music porn.”
Anorak Christmas by Sally Shapiro
“Little bit of a funky electronic weird Christmas track.”
Youth (Gryffin Remix) by Troye Sivan
“Not a Christmas song but definitely one of my favourite feel good tracks from 2016 and a good one for your last dance party of the year!”
1999 by Prince
“It’s just the ultimate NYE song.”
Waiting for Tonight by Jlo
“One of my favourite songs ever but also a videoclip with the most epic NYE party, am I right?”
