I do it for all the lil’ steezers out there.

The ones who rock Japanese raw denim overalls on the playground because they’re fed up with that Oshkosh shit. The ones who wear footie pajamas made from Cucinelli cashmere because they know what real dreams are made of. I do it for the ones who tell their mothers that clip-on ties aren’t good enough and pre-tied bow ties are for peasants. I do it for the ones who wear tapered sweats to soccer practice. The ones who use shoe horns to slip into their velcro Aldens. I do it for the ones setting the elementary school trends. The ones K-I-S-S-I-N-G the girls worth kissing. The ones who know they have the next generation on their shoulders. The ones who need a role model a little different than the rest.

Amazing video with Dieter Rams, design chief at Braun for 35 years, for SFMOMA. There are some great design philosophies and principles here.

"There is practically nothing that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper — and he who considers only the price is that man’s lawful prey."

"It is both delusional and stupid to think that clothes don’t really matter and we should all wear whatever we want. Most people don’t take clothing seriously enough, but whether we should or not, clothes do talk to us and we make decisions based on people’s appearances."

— G. Bruce Boyer, The Wall Street Journal
