The moment Adam and Eve realized they were naked, and different, they used leafs to cover their privates. Today, we have Margiela, Balmain, Phi and others. Those leaves have evolved into something far more complex and perhaps less natural, but nevertheless beautiful in its own artistic way. I believe we are all a little bit vain. Why would A & E cover themselves if not at least a little for vanity's sake?

Gotta love evolution, right? A & E are pioneers. Absolutely inspirational.
