Rei Kawakubo On Comfortable Fashion
"When you're comfortable with what you're wearing, you don't have new thoughts. I want people to feel something and think about who they are. You can't become truly free if you no longer think about clothes. You need to occasionally wear something strong, and that can feel strange. It makes you aware of your existence and can reaffirm your relationship with society."
- Rei Kawakubo, founder and designer, Comme des Garçons
