"I wanted to interpret an attitude not a silhouette, an experience not an era. Contemporary nonconformists and modern romantics have hidden spots in every city and a shared intellectual curiosity that informs how they live and what they wear"
"My idea was to combine workwear and formal wear. Jil Sander's traditional materials such as cashmere and double wool were mixed with more innovative materials in order to create more functional and practical clothes."
"I don't want to do very conceptual clothes that I will never wear because I think today with everything we see, we need sincerity."

"[The collection] explores the tension between utility, luxury and functionality. It's a remix inspired by the style of the young Kennedy boys and Gus Van Sant, seen through the melting pot that's at the heart of New York."
