He creates his own collections for Barneys, though he’s interested in more than just clothes—he’s at his most animated when talking about design of any sort.

The artwork. I had a great idea when I was in China this summer, this thing going on on the street, and I was just like, Man, I’m going to design something exactly like that. I can’t tell you at the moment. But for my next collection, when I do it, it’s gonna be just like that. To me, it’s just exciting, ’cause I’m able to see different things and come back.… I can’t draw, but someone who can draw, I’m able to explain to someone exactly what I want to do.”
