“This t-shirt is from a collection called Kick Sagat, a collaboration with a French adult film actor. I originally bought this t-shirt because I found the print so outrageous… I’m a fashion designer and I love nothing more than clothing that provokes a reaction.”
The first time I wore it was to a rooftop party with friends last summer in New York City. I remember the subway ride there was full of people doing double takes, and ironically enough I got loads of compliments from young women.
It turned out to be an amazing evening, watching the sunset over the Hudson River, surrounded by some of my most beloved friends. Every time I wear this t-shirt, it takes me back to that evening and it reminds me to be present in the moment, because I will never be there again. To quote one of my favorite songs: “Hot summer nights, mid July. When you and I were forever wild.”
