I must admit that I’m not that familiar with Jay-Z or Rick Ross or hip-hop in general. I mainly listen to hardcore techno, old disco records and old show tunes. But of course I’m pleased to have a happy client and I think it is nice that they talk about my products. I cannot imagine rejecting any positive response. I don’t supply them with my jackets, if that’s what you think. They have to go out and buy them. It is a surprise to me that they would even bother, but I guess as our world is getting more and more commercial maybe it has become interesting to them to look into less obvious, more obscure fashion labels. Before, hip-hop used to be all about big luxury label brands like, you know, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci.” - Rick Owens

And a man, a man provides. And he does it even when he’s not appreciated or respected or even loved. He simply bears up and he does it. Because he’s a man." – Gus Fring (Breaking Bad)

Jesse Pinkman: You know, I don’t get it. Why would anyone paint a picture of a door, over and over again, like, dozens of times?
Jane Margolis: But it wasn’t the same.
Jesse Pinkman: Yeah, it was.
Jane Margolis: It was the same subject, but it was different every time. The light was different, her mood was different. She saw something new every time she painted it.
Jesse Pinkman: And that’s not psycho to you?
Jane Margolis: Well, then why should we do anything more than once? Should I just smoke this one cigarette? Maybe we should only have sex once, if it’s the same thing.
Jesse Pinkman: …no.
Jane Margolis: Should we just watch one sunset? Or live just one day? Because it’s new every time. Each time is a different experience.” - (Breaking Bad)

While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said let me explain to you why you need to meet with me,” he said before sending out a message to his fans. “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January… Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence… they think that I don’t realize my power.
