The only reason I’m in fashion is to destroy the word conformity.
Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody’s buying far too many clothes.
My clothes have a story. They have an identity. They have a character and a purpose. That’s why they become classics. Because they keep on telling a story. They are still telling it.
You have a more interesting life if you wear impressive clothes.
I’m not trying to do something different, I’m trying to do the same thing but in a different way
The fight is no longer between the classes or between rich and poor but between the idiots and the eco-conscious.
It’s a philosophy of life. A practice. If you do this, something will change, what will change is that you will change, your life will change, and if you can change you, you can perhaps change the world.
Buy less, choose well: that’s the maxim. Quality not quantity. That’s the most environmentally friendly thing you can do.
The best fashion accessory is a book.
You’ve got to invest in the world, you’ve got to read, you’ve got to go to art galleries, you’ve got to find out the names of plants. You’ve got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We’re amazing people.
Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.
I design things to help people to hopefully express their personality.
The sexiest people are thinkers. Nobody’s interested in somebody who’s just vain with a hole in their head, talking about the latest thing – there is no latest thing. It’s all rubbish.
Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight, things that have nothing to do with reason.
The most erotic zone is the imagination.
I am attracted to people who make this effort in knowing what suits them – they are individual and stylish.
I’m not terribly interested in beauty. What touches me is someone who understands herself.
It’s true the punk fashion itself was iconographic: rips and dirt, safety pins, zips, slogans, and hairstyles. These motifs were so iconic in themselves – motifs of rebellion.
The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas.
If you wear clothes that don’t suit you, you’re a fashion victim. You have to wear clothes that make you look better.
Our economic system, run for profit and waste and based primarily on the extractive industries, is the cause of climate change. We have wasted the earth’s treasure and we can no longer exploit it cheaply.
Buy less, choose well & do it yourself!
Art should never be sociological; it has got to be timeless. It’s got to be your vision and how you can represent the world you see.
I do have reasons for what I do. I am a very political person, and I really think if you put these clothes on, you will look like a force to be reckoned with.
If you ask me what I think people should be getting next season, I’ll tell you what I’d like them to buy—nothing. I’d like people to stop buying and buying and buying.
