Comment: In Germany, due to the extension of the lockdown, the clothing trade has almost completely stopped. Loss from sales during this entire winter period equals ten billion euros. Half a billion fashion items remain unsold. They must already be destroyed because they will no longer be relevant next year.
My Response: I do not think that fashion will change. I do not think that fashion will exist at all. Therefore, I would not recommend destroying them. Rags are rags. People will not chase after this, as they do not chase after what is available today. It is over.
Question: That is, a person will not follow the season of 2021, 2022 and will wear whatever is comfortable and cozy for him?
Comment: Realizing this, fashionable clothes at the fashion show in China were replaced with protective suits and visors against the coronavirus. High fashion on the catwalk is protective medical equipment and clothing for service personnel and for firefighters. It was the answer to the growing Chinese market.
My Response: Of course, they immediately realized that this is the way things should be.
Question: Who would you now send to the European catwalks?
Answer: I would demonstrate very practical clothes that do not hinder movements, are comfortable, wearable, and that is it, and not flashy.
Question: Do you think there may be a couturier and high fashion for very simple clothes?
Answer: Comfortable! Not simple maybe, but comfortable. I love jackets with many pockets, pants that fit comfortably and do not need to be ironed. Something very comfortable that does not hinder any movement. You can sit everywhere, do whatever you want, it does not get dirty. This is what needs to be invented, so that clothes do not get dirty. Even if I fall in a can of paint, I get out of there, take a shower, and it rinses off me even without soap.
This is how it should be! Let them invent! What happens, they deliberately invent things that quickly get dirty or break.
Question: That is, you are not even in favor of having a lot of clothes in a closet, but just necessary everyday things?
Answer: I think that if a person likes what he is wearing, then it makes no sense for him to change it. It is all just empty fashion that is imposed on him.
Question: And nothing will come back? That is, we approached simplicity?
Answer: Nothing will come back! The clearest direction is comfort. So that it does not repel others and is comfortable for you.
Comment: Beautiful and comfortable.
My Response: What does beautiful mean? To make people want to stroke you. Like silk, like wool—something very pleasant. This is how it should be. Clothes that complement a person’s image.
