Fashion is made to become unfashionable. An evening dress that reveals a woman’s ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. You have to be luxurious nude. It’s difficult to move in the nude in front of a mirror. It’s much easier to move when you’re dressed. But if you can walk around in the nude easily in front of your man, if you can be luxurious in the nude, then you’ve really got it. I didn’t want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn’t like it. I always wanted to do other things. Delete the negative; accentuate the positive!
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish. I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom. Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes. It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion.
