"I'm tired of the trends going from boho chic to rock and roll, boho chic to rock and roll, then hippie chic to punk chic... I love music, but I'm just tired of this superficial rock-and-roll thing in fashion. I think being transgressive today is being classical. To pretend to dress as a punk and take cocaine and have sex orgies has just become common now—there's nothing transgressive about that. The fashion pages, like Purple magazine, are just a joke."
