“We like to create our own rules.” — Nicola Formichetti on showing his first collection for Diesel on Twitter.

“For the couple that has everything, I’d get them a brand new couch. I heard in Kanye’s remix to ‘Drunk in Love’ that he recently ruined his.” — Rebecca Minkoff on what she would get Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as a wedding gift.

“We would offer Kim and Kanye, the couple who has everything, anonymity. One of the Maison’s most treasured codes.” — Maison Martin Margiela

“Looking ahead, we anticipate pent-up consumer demand for spring apparel to drive sales as warmer weather returns.” — Michael Niemira, vice president of research and chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers.
