Karl Lagerfeld gives a damn good interview. His winning combination of having strong opinions, being an illustrative wordsmith, and his utter lack of fucks to give make him the fashion industry’s best quote machine (no disrespect to Diana Vreeland). Naturally, it was pretty exciting when the fashion gods gifted us with a new profile in Numéro, filled with a bunch of Karl-isms that range from sassy to outright bitchy. And yeah, he’s even willing to throw in some shock-worthy sound bites. Remember, this is the man who once publicly slammed Meryl Streep over a simple misunderstanding. He has no fear.
Does he say anything really groundbreaking about the state of fashion? Not really. Does this interview reveal any Lagerfeld secrets? Not exactly. Do we agree with what he has to say? Not at all. But hey, it’s Friday. It’s been a long week. So let’s just sit back, take a break, and revel in the outrageous things he’s said recently.
