"That’s how you know you love someone, I guess, when you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too."
— Kaui Hart Hemmings
"Fashion today is all about the product. With all the pre-collections and the shows that are just marketing exercises, it has turned into a system. For an old romantic like me, this is hurting a little bit. That’s why I try to do things my way. I like to have happy people around me, and it’s for these people that I create my collections. Fashion should never be too dark or too gloomy: it should evoke feelings of joy. I believe in clothes as tools for self-expression. The biggest compliment is if I see someone on the street wearing something I have created in a way I would never have imagined. Clothes should always tell something of the person that wears them – and very little of the designer who made them."
— Dries Van Noten
You want me? Well fucking come find me. I’ll be waiting with a gun and pack of sandwiches and nothing.
