Olivia Palermo’s husband Johannes Huebl thinks the fashionista is the perfect fit for Banana Republic.

Olivia Palermo doesn’t like it when her husband Johannes Huebl wears Converse sneakers.

The reality TV star-turned- fashionista is often feted for her own style choices, which has led to an ambassador role with Banana Republic.

Olivia, 30, always dresses up when she’s out and about, but her German model beau Johannes sometimes channels a more relaxed look – something his wife isn’t a fan of.

“I grew up wearing high-top Converses and sometimes I wear them with my Bermudas or pants when it's too hot in the summer, and she doesn't care for my Converse,” he laughed to instyle.co.uk. “There are one or two things she doesn't like, but it also doesn't matter to me. I still wear my Converses.”

Johannes was on hand to show Olivia his support during Banana Republic’s New York Fashion Week show recently. Models showcased next season’s offerings, worn alongside current season garments handpicked by Olivia.

“I'm really proud of her, and Banana Republic is a great company,” Johannes gushed. “I think she's the perfect person for Banana. She has really elegant style; it's effortless, creative, and I've seen the photos from the collaboration. It all has that Olivia elegance.”

Because of their professions, Olivia and Johannes, who wed in 2014, often complement each other with their outfit choices. While the looks may appear planned, Johannes clarifies that any wardrobe similarities happen purely by accident.

“Sometimes people assume that because we dress a certain way, that we coordinate. Sometimes it happens, she'll wear a denim shirt, I wear a denim shirt, but it's never planned,” he promised.

“We're both very casual with our fashion approach; we don't take ourselves too seriously. We do give each other tips, and I'll give her my opinion. Personally, I'm more of a classic person—I like contrast and monochrome, and I'm not very risky when it comes to trying prints.”
