Dries Van Noten Paris autumn/winter 2013

“People get this very romantic vision of a fashion designer who in one night makes 25 sketches and in the morning throws them on the table and there are a lot of women in white aprons with the pins on the lapel and they start to grab the sketches and… It’s not like that. Forget it! It’s lists, it’s computers, it’s meetings, it’s planning, it’s organising. It’s all these things.”
Dries Van Noten, The Telegraph

I can’t wait to see Dries Van Noten: Inspiration at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris this weekend!

Jefferson-Hack

“Now, mobile is in people’s hands every day and they are getting their news and fix of culture from a mix of media. So the print magazine has to become something more than it was. It has to become a printed manifesto and make a radical statement with more elaborate photography and more inspiring content. It has to be collectable and set the agenda.”
Dazed & Confused’s Jefferson Hack, nailing what many of us have been saying for years. Business Of Fashion

I feel the same way about style that I do about beauty: I want to be myself. I don’t care what’s in style or not, I’m not a fashionista — I’m a person with style, who wants to keep her style. It’s important to feel like yourself.”
Franca Sozzani, Into The Gloss

Vlisco-fabric

“Every Ghanaian woman of my mother’s generation collected hundreds of these fabrics. My mother literally had a room packed with these cloths. When I was 16, I decided I wanted to experiment and made an outfit from them. She came back, saw that I had cut into the cloth, and she lost her mind.”
Ozwald Boateng, Business of Fashion

A great article by Rebecca May Johnson on the Dutch fabric company Vlisco

“What we were doing back then, was rewriting the rules of being white and working class. We knew exactly what it meant to dance to black music in the era of the National Front and the racist standup comedian. Ours was a rebellion against pub culture, shit music and leery sexist nightclubs. Our weapon was obscure vinyl, made by black kids nobody had ever heard of.”
Paul Mason’s recollections of the Northern Soul scene are a must-read on Vice.com

“Ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer. The investigation of ugliness is, to me, more interesting than the bourgeois idea of beauty. And why? Because ugly is human.”
Miuccia Prada on why everything is ugly, The Telegraph
