10 Tricks to Better Skin

  1. Online media is increasingly influential in fashion. You can only go forward by making mistakes. Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. I think in the darkest moments, we need a break. If you cut a painter’s hands off, he’d still feel the urge to pick up a brush.
  2. A lot of self-importance goes on in the fashion industry. I’m not like that. We must never confuse elegance with snobbery. My job is to bring out in people what they wouldn’t dare do themselves. Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.
  3. I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty. I would like to be a one-man multinational fashion phenomenon. Fashions fade, style is eternal. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style. It’s hard to balance everything. It’s always challenging.
  4. I still appreciate individuality. Style is much more interesting than fashion, really. Even Michelangelo got paid for doing the Sistine Chapel. To those artists who say they’re doing it for the love of art, I say: Get real. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I feel that things happen for a reason and open up new opportunities. Fashion fosters cliches of beauty, but I want to tear them apart.
  5. If you wear clothes that don’t suit you, you’re a fashion victim. You have to wear clothes that make you look better. An evening dress that reveals a woman’s ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet. It is not easy to dress well. It is difficult to talk about fashion in the abstract, without a human body before my eyes, without drawings, without a choice of fabric – without a practical or visual reality.
  6. Fashion fosters cliches of beauty, but I want to tear them apart. For me, the summer will be pure gray – mother-of-pearl gray, very pale gray. To me, this is the big statement for summer. Then we have light blue, light turquoise, lots of pink. I have my permanent muses and my muses of the moment. My dresses are very reasonably priced, for dresses that are cut on the body. Today, I’m very happy about myself, because I realized my dreams. I learned how to understand what people want.
  7. I love the 2000s because everyone started to love haute couture. You have to stay true to your heritage; that’s what your brand is about. I always say: To be well dressed you must be well naked. Fashion should be fun. It shouldn’t be labelled intellectual. Sometimes incompetence is useful. It helps you keep an open mind.
  8. Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them. I don’t really know how to do casual clothes. Insecurity is a waste of time. You can’t just buy things for the label – it’s ridiculous. I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.
  9. We look our best in subdued colors, sophisticated cuts, and a general air of sleek understatement. I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes. Fashion is to please your eye. Shapes and proportions are for your intellect. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes.
  10. I never look at other people’s work. My mind has to be completely focused on my own illusions. Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it. Don’t dress to kill, dress to survive. Fashion should be fun. It shouldn’t be labelled intellectual. Vanity is the healthiest thing in life.
