Karim Rashid Wears Only Two Colors

New York magazine recently profiled five New Yorkers who only wear one color, all day, every day. Industrial designer Karim Rashid, a Designer Spotlight, was one of them. Rashid wears white half the time, and pink half the time; somehow the pink doesn't surprise me.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the interview:

Rashid on why he wears all white:

In college, I was obsessed with wearing all white. I felt angelic and free. But then, in the early eighties, I started wearing black. That was status quo in the avant-garde. If you were interesting — a designer, an architect — you wore all black.

On why he also wears pink:

Sometimes I think it’s because my mother dressed me in pink when I was a child. She wanted me to be a girl.

On whether or not he wears pink underwear:

The only place in the world that sells men’s pink underwear is American Apparel.

i think many Canadians would be unhappy about the magazine saying he is a New Yorker just because he currently lives there. I mean, he went to Carlton univ. and used government subsidies...traitor. (just kidding - i actually really dislike his designs).

I met him once at a hotel in Chicago (we took the elevator together) and the dude had pink luggage that was spot on with his suit and glasses. I almost wanted to laugh at him. I think he tries too hard.

Um. Ok. I love variety and can not imagine wearing only one color everyday.
