I don`t know that we did as many prints as we usually do, but we were really just careful to focus on what we wanted,
I love the colors this time. They`re very rich. It`s nothing too bright, it`s just like two shades back of bright.
It`s really about options, ... You can`t have overkill everywhere. Something has to be easy. And then something needs to be exciting. All-in-all, too much is too much.

Because of the photographic reproduction, it can only be printed on synthetic, so (the garments are) all polyesters, which feel amazing, ... For a while, polyester just mimicked fine fabrics so there was really no reason for it to exist, but now they have made such great leaps such as inventing truly new hands, beautiful new dr*pes, new possibilities that were never really there before.
I want to thank him for being such a kind influence to me personally. There`s a lot to learn from someone who celebrates life in that bigness.

They just look the smartest (in black), ... Black`s just the way to go in swimwear right now. It always looks good.
We airbrushed satin to make it look like chinchilla fur, ... We used silk and synthetic threads to imitate ermines and fluffy fabrics and then used silk chiffon and quilted it to look like sheared beaver.
