Today I was reading Women's Wear Daily and came across an exclusive interview with Commes des Garçon's designer and owner, Rei Kawakubo. Kawakubo is notorious for creating one of a kind, avant-garde looks, such as the inside out tennis shoe. And it was Kawakubo who was behind the Commes des Garçon perfume that smelled like exactly bug spray.

Something she said in the interview really caught my eye. Kawakubo said, "There are very few. [Rei was referring to young designers that she liked or had her eye on] There are few people who, like us, have the values and the way of thinking to really try hard. They lack discipline. And it's not just fashion, I think…[young people] get satisfied too easily. They're not strict enough with themselves. They’re too soft on themselves."
I personally agree with Rei Kawakubo's statement. But most importantly, I really want to know how you all feel about this statement? Do you think Rei is correct? Or do you think she is absolutely selfish for thinking such a thing.
