Karl Lagerfeld Breaks it Down

THIS Bitch.

Krazy Uncle Karl sat down for an interview with a new magazine and excerpts posted by Fashionista are most amusing.

We’ve Got Origin Myths:

I remember one time in winter in 1956–it was beyond cold. And I went to see my father at the George V with only a suit on…He said to me, “But you will die! You will get pneumonia!” And I said, “I prefer to die than to wear another coat than the robe style in blue cashmere in the Dorian Gray window. If not that one, I prefer to freeze.” So he bought the coat.

And:

The other thing that doesn’t work on me is a hat. I love hats, in a way, but when I was a child, I’d wear Tyrolean hats, and my mother–I was something like eight–said to me, ‘You shouldn’t wear hats. You look like an old dyke.’ Do you say such things to children? She was quite funny, no?

Karl feeling my pain as a Florida resident:

I think tattoos are horrible. It’s like living in a Pucci dress full-time. If you’re young and tight, maybe it’s OK, but…

And:

I hate sloppy footwear. What I hate most is flip-flops. I am physically allergic to flip-flops.

Though he has never publicly confirmed his date of birth, sources believe Lagerfeld  is 79 years old.

I spend a lot of time sucking my teeth behind most of his public statements but I better treasure his fan waving while it lasts.

Go to Fashionista for more. You know Karl makes it worthwhile and Choupette is the Queen Cat in Charge!

Lagerfeld is scheduled to open a new Paris storefront complete with books, accessories and other limited edition items in February 2013.  See you there?

 

Karl Lagerfeld (Joyously) Slams John Galliano

Gruselig Lagerfeld and Racistes Galliano

 

Word of the Day: Schadenfreude

Guess who’s rubbing their claws together at the crash and burn-style career death of John Galliano?

I’m furious, if you want to know. I’m furious that it could happen, because the question is no longer even whether he really said it. The image has gone around the world. It’s a horrible image for fashion, because they think that every designer and everything in fashion is like this. This is what makes me crazy in that story.

The thing is, we are a business world where, especially today, with the Internet, one has to be more careful than ever, especially if you are a publicly known person. You cannot go in the street and be drunk — there are things you cannot do… I’m furious with him because of the harm he did to LVMH and [chairman and ceo] Bernard Arnault, who is a friend, and who supported him more than he supported any other designer in his group, because Dior is his favorite label.

It’s as if he had his child hurt.”

Oh,  you rotzig eifersüchtig Hündin, you.  Yes. It would be Herr Karl Lagerfeld, who is known for his generosity and kindness toward others…especially the ugly, potato chip eating ones, ja?  (Remember this nugget of insight in Focus Magazine from Lagerfeld a couple of years ago?)

These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly,” Lagerfeld said in an interview with Focus magazine. The creative director of the fashion house Chanel added that the world of fashion was all to do “with dreams and illusions, and no one wants to see round women”.

Doesn’t that just break your heart?

Gyaaaaah.  These two bitches.  Oh, and it’s being widely reported that Galliano could face up to six months in prison for public racial slurs.  I’m sure that Herr Lagerfeld will visit, should that happen.
