More of Rei Kawakubo's incredible exhibition from last Friday's trip to the Met.
"I wasn't limited to the confines of a pattern. Not being educated, not being taught how to design, I was able to visualize in a completely different context. And I still seem able to draw upon the unconventional." "I learned that beautiful things for me are not necessarily beautiful to everyone else, but they could well be something very scary." "One cannot fight the battle without freedom. I think the best way to find that battle, which equals the unyielding spirit, is in the realm of creation." "Nothing new can come out of a situation without suffering."
"I remember reading about the way a novelist works. It said that he doesn't think up an outline and write from the top. He writes bits and pieces and puts them together at the end. That sounded familiar to me." "Am I an anarchist? In the sense that anarchy equals freedom, yes. Anarchy means freedom, but it also means chaos." "I've always liked the [punk] spirit in the sense that it's against the run of the mill, the normal way of doing things.....Punk is against flattery."
