Desire is the strongest human emotion – desire for a hat, desire for a dress; that's what drives people to buy and want things.
Fashion is a vampiric thing; it's the Hoover on your brain. That's why I wear the hats, to keep everyone away from me. They say, 'Oh, can I kiss you?' I say, 'No, thank you very much.'
