Head fashion house Chanel and founder of his own eponymous brand Karl Lagerfeld struck fans rude statements in an interview for the French publication Numero.
“I read somewhere that you now need to ask the model if she is comfortable to stand and pose. Well, it’s just too much — said the designer. — As for the accusations against the poor Carl Templar (creative Director of Interview magazine, accused of harassment by model — ed. “the Tape.ru”), I don’t believe a word of it. The girl complained that he tried to pull off her pants, and the man was immediately suspended from work where he was always in demand. This is incredible. If you don’t want to take my pants off, not to be a model! In the monastery you will always find a place.”
Speaking about male models, Lagerfeld called them stupid and said that men’s fashion does not interest him. When Lagerfeld was asked which of the young designers he’d take on a desert island, Virgil, Able or Jammu, 84-year-old fashion designer said that he’d rather kill myself.
“Designers which I would prefer in descending order: marine Serres, a meter and a half, but an iron will. Jammu, who will make me laugh and who is sweet enough. And lastly, to Anderson, even if his approach is too intellectual, although I have not studied,” — said Lagerfeld to the request of the journalist to place the talents of three designers in descending order.
