The team I have to work with at Loewe is incredible, from the architect to the archivist.
Fashion is an archetype: you're trying to build a silhouette, and that is very similar to building up a building because you're trying to create a new structure, a new proportion, a new shape, and you're using a material to cut which is a bit mathematical. That idea of finding something new in terms of proportion is something that drives me.
Buttons, for me, are very sculptural things, and they are so fascinating.
I think, in history, everything is about the remix.
I didn't reinvent clothing; I reinvented the edit.
When I started at Loewe, I took a year out before we did a collection because I felt we needed to work out all the fundamentals. The pencils, the door handles, the style of the press release, the stone of the buildings, the choice of photographer.
