Shed the old and dress up in beautiful clothes; clothes that suit you, clothes that have their seams on the outside, clothes that make you strong.
Do not be afraid to show yourselves as you really are. Have no fear that you will seem somewhat laughable because you never will. Never when you show what you are really like.
From: REAL FREEDOM, 1966
I am against conformism, against fashion, which changes every year.
Clothing is forever, just like art. Clothing must become art again and stop being just fashion.
clothing, as we all know, is man’s Second Skin, just as architecture is his Third Skin. If the Second Skin is taken ill or is made uniform or is not in keeping with man, doesn’t befit man, then man, i. e., the organism situated beneath it, will also get sick.
The urge to imitate the worthless is particularly pronounced in the contemporaries of present-day civilisation.
Finished-part production and factory-made garments are removing us farther and farther from the creative design of our own clothing, which is not just something which one wears on the outside.
From: ON THE SECOND SKIN (excerpt), 1983
