I think there's a core of the upper echelon with buzzword names like Dior that people would associate with the fashion industry. I'm very excited by what's happening more on the fringe of things, like with Eckhaus Latta. They're great, they went to RISD, and the way that they approach every step of their process is as if they're reinventing or re-envisioning these tired conventions in fashion. For example, for their early Steve Jobs-inspired line, in lieu of a tag, the designers printed ‘Eckhaus Latta’ on a grain of rice, placed it into a vial and attached the vial to an article of clothing.

I’m really excited about those new enterprises that are a little less definable because they're straddling the line between art and fashion. And for completely different reasons, I also think Man Repeller is really amazing.
