The roots of my fashion are very classic. People judge me avant-garde, people judge me rock and roll, and I am smiling. I am the most classically influenced of the Italian designers.
When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before.
The classics are only primitive literature. They belong to the same class as primitive machinery and primitive music and primitive medicine.
In science, read, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classic literature is always modern.
A classic is a book that doesn’t have to be written again.
