Kinds mentioned within the article:
“You can by no means be overdressed. There’s no such factor. The people who I appeared as much as in music—Prince and David Bowie and Elvis and Freddie Mercury and Elton John—they’re such showmen. As a child it was fully mind-blowing. Now I’ll placed on one thing that feels actually flamboyant, and I don’t really feel loopy carrying it. I believe if you happen to get one thing that you just really feel superb in, it’s like a superhero outfit. Garments are there to have enjoyable with and experiment with and play with. What’s actually thrilling is that each one of those traces are simply form of crumbling away. Whenever you take away ‘There’s garments for males and there’s garments for girls,’ when you take away any limitations, clearly you open up the sector in which you’ll play. I’ll go in outlets generally, and I simply discover myself wanting on the girls’s garments pondering they’re superb. It’s like something—anytime you’re placing limitations up in your personal life, you’re simply limiting your self.”
