Morano: But should people be limited in what they can buy in terms of clothing to 3 new
MacArthur: It depends on how they get access to that clothing. It’s not about how the clothing itself, it’s about how much you have. It is about how you get access to that clothing in addition to the design of that clothing. Many labels have different clothing in different ways, which doesn’t mean we have to own everything that we want.
