"The BAPE clothing concept is based on my everyday gear. I did not want to wear the same thing over and over again, so we made our line very limited. Our style has been the same ever since.â€
"Jewelries are very important to me. That SpongeBob [Square Pants] is one of my favorite, I got it from Pharrell as a gift. We know each other through Jacob the Jeweler. Almost all my custom-made jewelry are made by Jacob.â€
"I don't usually wear suits. I have over 50, but I wear them once a year. They are more like a part of my collection. We did make suits once, about five years ago, but we are not making any at the moment.â€
