"What someone wears is an expression of oneself. When you're just comfortable with what you're wearing, you don't have new thoughts. I want people to feel something and think about who they are ... You need to occasionally wear something strong, and that can feel strange. It makes you aware of your existance and can reaffirm your relationship with society. I think people feel a minute current running through them as they come into contact with something made by someone exploring the limits. When you put on clothes that are fighting against something, you can feel your courage grow." —Rei Kawakubo, Interview, October 2015
