The decade that was:
High: “People realized a guy with a guitar and leather boots is way sexier than a DJ with headphones and fluo sneakers. This clearly changed a lot in fashion.” Lows: “The death of Yves Saint Laurent, and the endemic invasion of high street brands copying every single item from the runway.”

Top trends: “I like that wearing black has become acceptable and is not regarded as a statement anymore.”

Favorite muse: “Eva Mendes.”

The decade to come:
New muses: “Muses of tomorrow are the outcasts of today.”

Next fashion capital: “It was, it is and it will be Paris.”

Styles to avoid: “Tartan ... and Uggs.”

Hoping to see: “Nations finally joining forces to fight poverty, hunger and climate change.”
