Meet Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014, which is “not to be confused with ‘radiant orchard,’ a mysterious psychological phenomenon that causes 20-year-olds to somehow enjoy the Lower East Side on weekend evenings.”
"It’s a daring color for men. Bold men might try it in a shirt—solid or print—while more timid types might just use it as an accent color in neckties and socks.”
'Those meeker still will purchase radiant orchid keychains, toothbrushes, or watchbands—something small and non-threatening. The men too fearful for even a tiny accessory might, while gripping tightly the hand of a loved one, simply Google 'radiant orchid' and allow its combative womanliness to, just for a moment, color their computer screens. 'Ahh!' they’ll scream. 'AhhhHHHHhhhHHHHHHhh!'”
"I’ve got big hips and a big body. I’m double, triple the size of other models - and I embrace that. I own it.

“I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. …
I like men to keep their distance from women. I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is… I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
