Muito bom conhecer um pouco mais desses mestres. Segue techos das entrevistas, para ler, reler e refletir.
" People just ignored me.
That was fine. I was doing it for myself.
But I Always knew I would be something in fashion.
I didn't know how big, but I always knew I'd be something."
" A lot of people aren't very good when they start
and then later they become interesting.
My work hadn't matured then but you have to go through it.
It's part of the learning process.
I don't even consider I'm there yet.
I haven't finished."
" I have the impression that there are a lot of things
I haven't done yet. An awful lot of things.
I have the impression not being young, but of being young in my work.
Each day is a new day, and that is very lucky for me.
And each day, when I awake, even if I have the impression
that what I am doing is terrible, I begin again, and again."
" We have a great evolution of industry,
a lot of great designers. They are capable of new ideas,
for new centuries. Why not? If people do something new,
something radical, we should applaud them.
Sometimes, my clothes are radical, probably, sometimes
challenging, but I try not to fear radical things."
" I think that what makes something modern is its
functionality, that's what modernism was created for, that
the design of something comes from its function.
The final result of the work is minimal, but it's not minimal
in the sense that a lot of research and thought has gone into it.
It's like when you refine an idea over and over again.
I don't like things that are over-designed.
I think you can get away with more faults when things are
over-designed because you can tuck them away somehow.
It's easier to create an impact with that than with something that is less.
It's harder to edit an idea than it is to add on."
"No, no. I am not trendy. You have to put these two things
in two different boxes. Trendy is for extremely young people and
also for people who are maybe a little bit fashion victim.
What I try to do is a young collection - glamorous, sexy, extremely feminine -
but not clothes that only last for a short , short season."
