He can thank his mother:
There's something iconic about jeans. My mother doesn't walk around in couture gowns. Even though I like couture and it's inspirational, in the end when you work in fashion, the older you get, the more routine you get — the more you work with your own experience. I work a lot with my own home, what I stumble upon and my mother's wardrobe. I do my mother's colors all the time. She likes a certain couple of colors, and I think because she always wore black, I always work with black. I always work with a kind of lavender because she liked it. I've explored other color charts, but left alone I will always go back to those colors.
