xeroxI think it was Coco Chanel who said if you’re original, be ready to be copied.I love seeing a Zara window filled with Haute Couture clothes which are a mix of Vuitton and Sorbier! I think that’s genius. It’s even better than what I do! I love the styling, I love the story…

Copiers go fast. They have a great sense of styling and how to pick up what they have to pick up from designers. When Olivier Rousteing did is New York collection and we did the black and white checks, I knew they would be in Zara and H&M. But they did it in a clever way – they mixed a Céline shape with my Balmain print! Well done! I love that.”

Today people are looking at Rihanna like they were looking at Nabila or Claudia… Nobody wants to be a model. Everybody wants to be a singer. That’s the new dream. I think having Rihanna in the campaign is like having Cindy Crawford of Christy Turlington.”
