"I see the Auerbach & Hodgkin, thickly applied, earthy funk, and sunshine filled colour. Light playing across the ribs, it almost breathes as I move. But it’s that other British textur-alist that I think of when wearing because Begg’s stuff has that give a proverbial, just being me, louche and quietly luxe Britishness of Freud’s best work.
When I think about the brands and people whose work I love, there is an obsession there in everything they do. Knowledge, technique and expertise running through every element. They are those who could wow us, throw their entire box of tricks, and dazzle. But that’s why they are they and I am not, because the true skill is not to hold something back, nor little flourishes, just the right amount."
