It’s a must! Forget about books, forget about your daily, weekly, monthly magazine routine! The interview from Prestige Magazine is so memorable, it could easily become a best seller hang-on-the-wall-word-of-wisdom.
I’ll post down some of the most interesting answers Lagerfeld gave:
“I hate the smell of cooking. (…) I don’t eat sweet things. I don’t eat greasy things. (…) Anorexia is nothing to do with fashion. (…)Let’s talk about the fat ones. (…)I hate all children. (…) I don’t want to have a social life. (…) It’s démodé. (…) I try to avoid charity. (…)I’m rich enough not to have to do that. (…) I am not a traveler. I hate it. I never look at my watch. (…)In all my contracts it says, if you want me, send a private jet. (…) I hate to be touched by strangers. It bores me to death. (…) I’m frustrated by nothing at all (…) I have no ambition. (…)I don’t want to be a teacher. (…) I’m the most selfish person in the world. (…) Never go one size ahead. Go down but not up. (…) I’m a computer by myself. (…) Love is a subject I don’t analyze publicly.”
The interview is just beyond words. It makes every other interview until and beyond so “démodé” and I refuse to comment it in any way. Instead I invite you most politely to tell me what you think.
