What’s on his mind today: Now? I’m afraid it’s empty. I can’t think, actually. I’ve been getting ready for this collection for a couples of months now that I just want to take a little rest. But, I’m definitely thinking about moving forward, what would be my next move.

What he thinks there is too much of, and too little of: There is too much of the same. Right now, it’s like everyone wants to be everyone else. We need to find out who we are and just be ourselves. It’s what makes us stand out, being different, individuals, human beings.

With whom he would most like to go on a “tête à tête”: With the mind behind Maison Martin Margiela.

What he would do if he was the president: I would let everybody be free. It would be chaotic, but that’s fun, right? It’s not always about the future, maybe we can find our answers going back 1000 years and maybe stay that way for to see what happens, what I can use to save the world. But, my slogan would be “Let’s all be free!”

What kind of movement he would like to start: A more loose and non-structure one. Once, I read that there is a certain edgy bravado emerge in my work. I think that my movement would be enigmatic, relevant taking great things from the past to make them contemporary. These things will be on top of this foundation: stay true to a history more than a type of person you want to dress.

What good energy means to him: Good energy is living well. It’s all we need, but sometimes is hard for me to figure out what’s good or bad from people. We’ve come so far in terms of acting to get what you want that once you find out, have to end up whatever you’re sharing.

What cracks him up: When I’m around all of my crazy friends.

Who represents his “artistic” family: I think both of my parents. My father is a mechanic and my mother a hair stylist. They raised me and it took a lot of courage, that’s why I think they’re artistically perfect.

What he would like to leave to future generation: That being yourself, bold and professional is what will get you noticed.

What his WILD Wish is: Getting everything I want in life.
