Ignorance is bliss, says Thom Browne.

Question: What is going on in men’s fashion that excites you?

Thom Browne: You know I’ll say I don’t really keep up with what’s going on in men’s fashion. I really . . . I do my own thing, and I almost do it in a way to . . . to keep it . . . keep it easy for myself. I always feel like if you know too much of what’s going on, you sometimes are subconsciously inspired. Or you know you’re maybe drawn in a direction that isn’t really yours. So in a way I think ignorance is bliss, because if you don’t know what’s going on, you pretty much just do what you wanna do, and it keeps it very pure to what you are, or who you are.
