Vintage Comme des Garcons shirt from Chatuchak Market in Bangkok. “I wrote my college thesis on failure, and I love Rei Kawakubo’s absolute genius at making things that refuse a certain set of rules, that are unflattering. But then there’s also failure as a counter to intention, the whole setting out to achieve something and going for it. And the only thing we don’t set out to do is fail; it’s the only thing for which we don’t try. I probably shouldn’t have bothered turning in any thesis at all.”
