On his relationship with LVMH chief Bernard Arnault: "I used to say in the beginning that I was like the pig in Babe when the farmer, who was not wildly emotional, expressed himself in a super-warm way. Mr Arnault does not express himself in a super-warm way, but he has softened up — I am that pig and he pats me on the back and says 'That'll do pig', and I just feel this is the highest praise. This is a man who does not throw out compliments or say things to please people — he just does not." [British Vogue]
