- I have lived for my work and through my work
- Fashion's role was to...reassure them (women), give them confidence and allow them to assert themselves
- Every man needs aesthetic ghosts in order to live. I have pursued them, sought them, hunted them down
- I have known...anxiety, fear and terrible solitude...I emerged, dazzled but sober
- The most important encounter in life is the encounter with oneself
