“I don’t believe in art. I believe in artists.”Marcel Duchamp (via free-parking)
“I see only forms that are lit up and forms that are not. There is only light and shadow.”Francisco Goya (via likeafieldmouse)
“The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.”
“I love unmade beds. I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest in that moment. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love the gasp people take when their favorite character dies. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds. I fall in love with people and their honest moments all the time. I fall in love with their breakdowns and their smeared makeup and their daydreams. Honesty is just too beautiful to ever put into words.”(via angusandjuliastoned)
“I love designing individual things. But creating that entire world, the world you just saw, the world I will hopefully be lucky enough to continue to create, that’s what really fascinated me.”Tom Ford (via the-front-row)
“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”Marcus Aurelius (via miss-she)
“My design process never starts or finishes. I am always hoping to find something through the mere act of living my daily life. I do not work from a desk, and do not have an exact starting point for any collection. There is never a mood board, I do not go through fabric swatches, I do not sketch, there is no eureka moment, there is no end to the search for something new. As I live my normal life, I hope to find something that click starts a thought, and then something totally unrelated would arise, and then maybe a third unconnected element would come from nowhere. Often in each collection, there are three or so seeds of things that come together accidentally to form what appears to everyone else as a final product, but for me it is never ending. There is never a moment when I think, ‘this is working, this is clear.’ If for one second I think something is finished, the next thing would be impossible to do.
“Often the elements are completely disassociated in time and dimension. One might be an emotion, the next thing a pattern image, the third thing an object or a picture I have seen somewhere. I can never remember when and from where the elements come together in my head. I trust synergy and change. For fall 2012, I was thinking about no design being design, about very ordinary fabric (wool felt) being strong. Somehow, the two-dimension level of thinking became apparent.
“I do not feel happy when a collection is understood too well. For me, White Drama was too easily understood, the concept too clear. I feel better about fall 2012, because it wasn’t too clear, and some people assumed things it had nothing to do with, like the Internet age.
“The struggle to find something new gets more and more difficult with time and experience, so this time, for fall 2012, my feeling was to try to make a collection by doing very little.”” Cathy Horyn, “Mona Lisa, Ever So Veiled” (via fuckyeahcommedesgarcons)
“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”Leonardo Da Vinci (via razorshapes)
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”Banksy (via potentideas)
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”Steve Jobs (via storygoes)
“Freedom is man’s capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.”Rollo May (via nminusone)
