Fashion is something you attach to yourself, put on, and through that interaction the meaning of it is born. Without the wearing of it, it has no meaning, unlike a piece of art. It is fashion because people want to buy it now, because they want to wear it now, today. Fashion is only the right now.
Comme des Garcons is a gift to oneself, not something to appeal or to attract the opposite sex.
（譯：Comme des Garcons的衣服不是用來吸引異性的。）
I make clothes for a woman who is not swayed by what her husband thinks.
Beauty is whatever anyone thinks is beautiful.
One should buy clothes because of how they make you feel, not look.
There is a kind of burnout – people just want cheap fast clothes and are happy to look like everyone else.
I’ve always been against people who told me what to do.
If I do something I think is new, it will be misunderstood, but if people like it, I will be disappointed because I haven’t pushed them enough. The more people hate it, maybe the newer it is. Because the fundamental human problem is that people are afraid of change. The place I am always looking for-because in order to keep the business I need to make a little compromise between my values and customers’ values-is the place where I make something that could almost-but not quite-be understood by everyone.
