Cavalli quotes

Robert Cavalli says some hilarious things in this article from the Telegraph.
Roberto Cavalli: ‘The English – oh my God!’ – Telegraph

“I am not gay,” he adds hastily, holding up a bejewelled hand, his expression suddenly stern. “I detest men – dressed or naked – but women…” The dreamy look returns and, a few feet away, Sharon Stone laughs into her mobile phone. What is it he loves the most about women? He strikes a pensive pose. “Flesh,” he concludes.

But nothing makes him despair quite like undesirables wearing his clothes: “It happens a lot with women of a certain nationality – I’m sure you can imagine which – and you just want to say ‘Give it back!’?

I wonder who he’s talking about here, hmmm.

“I’m very much against all these celebrities doing diffusion lines. Do I suddenly get up in the morning and say that I am going to start a singing career, with the horrible voice that I have? That’s what these girls do when they show the world how horrible their fashion ranges are. Money is the most corrosive aspect of life today because it means that all attention to detail is forgotten. Kate Moss’s collection was badly made, stupid and bland; you see things like that everywhere. You can’t just buy things for the label – it’s ridiculous.”

This is the only thing I didn’t laugh at.
