“Culture is made by the things that last. Not the things that turn out to have been fashionable. Or the things that are made badly and seize to function over time. This applies as much to cities as it does to clothing, for that matter. It should be about people, again. That’s what I stand for in everything I do.”
“Similar to clothing, buildings are a super important part of the identity of people. Let the people that inhabit a city build their own city. Let them express who they are, instead of forcing things upon them.”
“I like my clothing to be neutral, but of the highest quality. Made with attention, good fabrics, in timeless colors, fitting very well. I like my clothing to be well cut, showing the person inside the clothes. I feel all of those things are reflected in the collaboration with Atelier Munro. I like blending in, but still express myself in a very subtle way.”
