1. …On McQueen’s ‘secretive’ nature and creative process: “Beyond the photos I have nothing I want to say about the man himself, but your assumption he was secretive is wrong, he just had a private life beyond his public persona and everyone has a right to that, those people who give that up for fame are usually talentless losers. The man was an artist not a tabloid personality, I think we live in an age where media and its thirst for a story tries to turn anyone with anything to give to humanity into ‘content’. It’s very difficult now days for everything not to be turned into ‘content’. Everything I have to say about his creative process is in my pictures; I am not a fashion commentator.” (via McQueen Mania | The Coveteur)

    "I think it’s really important that you get your inspiration from everywhere. Lee taught me that you should be inspired by everything that’s going on around you. There’s no snobbery in inspiration. It can be something on the telly or something you see in the street or in a book or a museum."

  3. I remember him saying to me, ‘I watched “Friends” last night, did you see the shirt that Joey was wearing?’ But then, he would get a Van Eyck book out, so it was this kind of mad mix. There’s no snobbery to it. He had this way of making you look at everything for inspiration so you didn’t just go, ‘Ok, we’re doing Seventies’.
