"I'm a Margiela freak; I'm wearing it today. I can't really speak for Martin Margiela because I don't know him, but I can see that he sold his line to [Diesel's] Renzo Rossi so I think at that point that he was ready to become a different kind of brand, which is very similar, not that I'm comparing myself to Margiela, but you can only be too cool for school for so long. It just doesn't really pay. You know, it's like when Leonard Cohen wrote that really amazing song—oh, he's Canadian! You know, he asked me out for coffee when I was married and it's one of my biggest regrets ever." —Kelly Cutrone [Globe and Mail]
