I love quotes-knowing many of them I hold onto are in fact misquotes. But it doesn’t seem to matter…funny, that. Here’s a small collection of quotes on love, passion and beauty from Sartorial Gods Past and Present (we think). I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
“Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you.” ― Karl Lagerfeld
“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” -Yves Saint Laurent
“Elegance is elimination.” -Cristobal Balenciaga
“You've got to invest in the world, you've got to read, you've got to go to art galleries, you've got to find out the names of plants. You've got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We're amazing people.” -Vivienne Westwood
“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” -Yves Saint Laurent
“Make me a fragrance that smells like love.” -Christian Dior
“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.” -Karl Lagerfeld
“By being natural and sincere, one often can create revolutions without having sought them.” -Christian Dior
“I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve… I want woman to look stronger… I don’t like women to be taken advantage of… I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is… I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.” -Alexander McQueen
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” -Coco Chanel
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
