Shaolin, Designer

Growing up in the 60s, what are some things that have changed in the fashion world?
Everything is a lot more comfortable. But now I find that it’s hard to find that balance between what looks comfortable and what looks “schleppy”. A lot of people who could look cool look schleppy. 
Why do you think that is?
It’s either laziness or the suburbanization of New York. I personally detest trucker hats and backless loafers.
What are some innovations that have inspired you as a designer?
I think 3D printing is really cool and there’s a lot you can do with that to mass produce attire and literally create a direct order of what you visualize.
