I think perfection is ugly. Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.
Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. […] But above all black says this: ‘I don’t bother you – don’t bother me’
Fashion cannot make you sexy. Experience makes you sexy. Imagination makes people sexy. You have to train yourself, you have to study, and you have to live your life.
A beautiful flower does not exist. There’s only a moment when a flower looks beautiful.
With my eyes turned to the past, I walk backwards into the future.
Start copying what you love. Copy copy copy copy. At the end of the copy you will find your self.
Colour disturbs people. I am confident in black, not in light. This dark side of life is attractive to me forever and from the beginning. I am a lazy designer when it comes to colour.
Clothing doesn’t lie, it shows everything.
It meant something to me – the idea of a coat guarding and hiding a woman’s body. For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favor, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence.
I hate fashion. Or the word fashion, which sounds colorful, extravagant, expensive and gorgeous. “I never wanted to walk the main street of fashion. I have been walking the sidewalks of fashion from the beginning, so I’m a bit dark.
Dirty, stained, withered, broken things seem beautiful to me.
The more we possess, the more distant we grow from God.
My role in all of this is very simple. I make clothing like armor. My clothing protects you from unwelcome eyes.
Men’s clothing is more pure in design. It’s more simple and has no decoration. Women want that. When I started designing, I wanted to make men’s clothes for women. But there were no buyers for it. Now there are. I always wonder who decided that there should be a difference in the clothes of men and women. Perhaps men decided this.
Fashion is only complete when it is worn by ordinary people who exist now, managing their lives, loving and grieving.
A pair of brilliantly cut cotton trousers can be more beautiful than a gorgeous silk gown.
You can say that designing is quite easy; the difficulty lies in finding a new way to explore beauty
I always want to have a new challenge involved. I need to put myself to the test, and if I make mistakes, it doesn’t matter. What matters to me, instead, is making my dreams come true and putting them on display.
I want to achieve anti-fashion through fashion. That’s why I’m always heading in my own direction, in parallel to fashion.
If you feel strongly about someone, go up to them. Pursue what you want in life. Why be shy about something like that?
Just listen to the material. What is it going to say? Just wait. Probably the material will tell you something.
I believe that there are three conditions to a woman’s beauty. First, you must realize that not all women are beautiful all of the time. Sometimes beauty comes on a subconscious level. When she is in love, or has met someone new and exciting, she shines. Second, you must understand that life is unfair. Beauty is something that, for some, must be worked at. The third condition is luck. Some women can just be lucky.
Beautiful things are disappearing every day.
Generally speaking, I am not interested in the future and don’t believe in it. First, I guess it is true that I don’t trust the future, but, more to the point, I don’t even trust the “myself” of tomorrow, nor, for that matter, of the day after. Basically, all I know, and all I am capable of understanding, is the “me” that is here, now, the “me” that has dragged his past with him to this point.
