On fashion and sex:

“The ability to watch porn straightaway means that the times when you have actual physical intimacy with someone else aren’t so special. You just think, “I could have just done this on my own and I wouldn’t have had to shower or spend all that money on drinks,” you know? It ends up just being easier. The world is changing and it’s an exciting time to be experimenting with sex, fashion, and music.” Read more…

On how he started:

“It was almost ten years ago, maybe. When I was 22. I sort of fell into it really. I was working in a shop called the Pineal eye, selling young designers. I was the shop assistant/buyer. I met Katy England and Alister Mackie who were the fashion directors of Dazed and Confused then, they asked me to work on small projects for the magazine.

The more successful I become the more I can give back, that’s the way I see it.” Read more…

On fashion in Japan:

“There are alot of interesting things happening with high-fashion and streetwear in japan. It doesn’t really reach out because it is so far away from the other fashion capitals and it doesn’t really reach out. My new job at Vogue Hommes Japan is an attempt to push Exciting fashions from Japan to the rest of the world!” Read more…
