Fashion to me has become very disposable; I wanted to get back to craft, to clothes that could last. I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best. I don’t try to be in fashion; I don’t try to follow trends. You just end up out of fashion that way. Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity. If you cut a painter’s hands off, he’d still feel the urge to pick up a brush.
My breakfast is very important. Instead of buying six things, one thing that you really like. Don’t keep buying just for the sake of it. Fashion should be fun. It shouldn’t be labelled intellectual. Go to a place where you’re not going to be stressed, because a honeymoon itself can be a stressful thing. I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom.
