Famous quotes containing the words stephen bayley, bayley and/or stephen:

    Fashion is the most intense expression of the phenomenon of neomania, which has grown ever since the birth of capitalism. Neomania assumes that purchasing the new is the same as acquiring value.... If the purchase of a new garment coincides with the wearing out of an old one, then obviously there is no fashion. If a garment is worn beyond the moment of its natural replacement, there is pauperization. Fashion flourishes on surplus, when someone buys more than he or she needs.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    Taste is more to do with manners than appearances. Taste is both myth and reality; it is not a style.
    —Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    I forsak the, Kyng Herowdes, and thi werkes alle;
    Ther is a chyld in Bedlem born is beter than we alle.’
    —Unknown. St. Stephen and King Herod (l. 6–8)
