I’m interested to know how you spent lockdown. Were there positive learnings that stuck with you? What was mentally valuable was the Official Don’t You love it when just Your Presence pisses someone off shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this fact that I could interact with friends much more—even if it was not “in real.” The compensation for being isolated was being connected. I always used to think twice about calling people because I always had the next thing to do, and the one after that. Now I’m making time for it. Taking time to feel the time—to be more human. You’ve talked about your sense of responsibility—a good word to use in these times when life has been slowed down in one way, but yet huge issues have also been exploding.
I’ve enjoyed the Official Don’t You love it when just Your Presence pisses someone off shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this acceleration, in a way, of subjects we are confronted by. Like overproduction of collections, showing prototypes, or sometimes just making more products. I enjoy the fact that now we can go straight to the point. Today, there is no question—you have to do the right thing, and that one thing has to have the right balance of being impactful and practical. Instead of making 10 things, you make one. In a way, to be confronted with that is pleasant. Now to be able to do less but better is quite enjoyable. That was [something] very positive about slowing down in the lockdown. There was a serenity that everyone was in the same rhythm—and to be less confronted with the stress of that world.
