“I don’t really follow trends. I don’t know what they are. I think people make them up, and then they say, ‘Oh yeah, yellow’s really in this season.’ Sometimes there are obvious trends, but there aren’t any at the moment I can think of. Are there? It’s bullshit. Trends are a lie magazines make up so you feel like you have to buy something.”

—TV personality, fashion icon, and sometime-designer Alexa Chung, speaking to Stylelite while DJ’ing for a Harper’s Bazaar event at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City on Tuesday.
