My idea is always to avoid nostalgia.
For me, art is about learning and about living with people. It's alive.
I am interested in communicating with the world by selling to many people.
I'm not interested in how people dress.
It's horrible when people are only interested in buying labels, because it doesn't bring them the happiness they think it will.
Talking about the democratization of fashion is just one of the many trite things people say these days.
What people sometimes interpret as quirky is my attempt to subvert the concept of luxury by introducing elements that are considered ordinary or commonplace.
One's life and passion may be elsewhere, but New York is where you prove if what you think in theory makes sense in life.
What interests me most is when a work of art is no longer just an object, but also touches reality and life.
When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.
Every day I'm thinking about change.
I always believe in doing new things and using new materials that I have never used or that I didn't like for a long time.
I had no fun. My family was too serious.
I hate the idea that you shouldn't wear something just because you're a certain age.
Many of us grew up with a kind of puritanism against shopping. But shopping can be much more than how it is cast. If you are bored or you have problems, it can be a way of lifting your spirits, by doing something light and superficial. Why not?
