Favorite Quotes from Andre 3000

“I think a lot of African-American kids don’t have fathers to teach them how to dress, so you end up being taught by pictures in magazine and movies. You see cowboys, Indians, old Hollywood films, Cary Grant. It has an effect on you.” – Andre 3000 

“When the OutKast sound changed and I started producing my own records, I would mirror what I thought that character doing that music would look like. As the sound got a little wilder, freakier and funkier, so did the clothes. Then when the sound got more sophisticated, the clothes changed again.” – Andre 3000

“I think it’s really important to show style now. The majority of style right now is to act like you don’t have style at all, so most companies are getting rich off clothes that look torn, clothes that look worn.” – Andre 3000

“Look at Scottish guys wearing kilts – you could look at them and laugh, but the way they carry themselves, how can you? You can wear some of the weirdest things and be cool. If you believe in it, that’s what makes it cool.” Andre 3000

“I guess why most people move to New York City: a change, a new start. My kid went off to college, and my parents died—both of ’em within the last six years. I was like, I’ve kinda outlived Atlanta. It’s not like I go to the studio—I’m just sitting around wasting time and doing stuff I’m not supposed to be doing.” – Andre 3000

“Tretorns started on the tennis court and then became a street thing. Bixby was my first foray into design. To be honest, man, those were the best times of my life. I was traveling to the fabric shows in Paris, I’m flying to Hong Kong, flying to Italy. At one point, I was in Hong Kong, and there was an N.E.R.D. concert, which is Pharrell.” – Andre 3000
