    Default Karl Lagerfeld: ‘What I hate most is flipflops, I am physically allergic to flipflops

    Karl Lagerfeld: ‘What I hate most is flip-flops, I am physically allergic to flip-flops’

    These are some photos of Karl Lagerfeld enjoying himself at some events a few days ago during Paris Fashion Week. He looks… like Karl. Unfortunately for all of us. Karl did not bring Choupette out for Paris Fashion Week… I’m actually wondering if Karl isn’t a bit disturbed by Kim Kardashian’s fluffy kitty Mercy, and how Kim and Kanye seem to be copying him. But Karl knows that we still love to hear from him, so he gave an interview to a men’s quarterly magazine called M. Karl discusses his mother, his hair, and why he hates tattoos. It’s all pretty much classic Karl. Some highlights:

    He uses Dior Homme instead of a scale to gauge weight gain:
    I never had one button retouched [of Dior Homme]. It’s better than any bathroom scale, huh? Clothes tell the truth.

    His thoughts on fitness:Fitness is as boring as sickness as a subject.

    He once almost froze to death because he didn’t have the coat he wanted: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.

    On how he arrived at his current hairdo:When I was tired of the fashion for long, curly hair–because my hair was curly-I started to attach it. It was in 1976. So that means that I have had the ponytail for 35 or 36 years! Not bad, no? It’s the easiest hairdo. I’m not very gifted for hairdos. I don’t like gel and all those products. It’s perfect with this white powder, because my hair is not that white at all.

    Non-handmade shirts are torture:If you’re accustomed to a handmade shirt by Hilditch, a ready-bought shirt is like wearing some torture stuff.

    His mom gave him a hat complex: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 d-ke.’ Do you say such things to children? She was quite funny, no?

    He’s not a fan of tattoos: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…

    He has physical footwear allergies:I hate sloppy footwear. What I hate most is flip-flops. I am physically allergic to flip-flops.

    He didn’t want to build a big empire, and isn’t interested in money (huh?):I never wanted to build a big empire. I am too superficial for that. I like the sketching, but I don’t want any responsibility for people. I don’t want to look at numbers. I know how to spend, I know how to make for my private use, but I am not interested to make money in terms of a company.

    On whether he has guilt about how much he spends on clothes:Gilded, OK. Guilt, no.

    He wears cut out gloves to make his arm longer (and you know what that means…):Because in the old protocol, it is impolite to say hello to somebody who is wearing gloves. And you know I cannot sketch if I have leather here [on my fingertips]. It also makes the arm longer. And you know what it means in French to have a long arm? It means you are influential.

    And finally, he gives himself manicures:I hate manicures. I do them myself. I’m pretty good at it. I cannot stand someone touching my fingers.

    [From M Magazine, via Fashionista]

    The fact that his mother told him he looked like an “old d-ke” explains quite a bit about Ol’ Karl, doesn’t it? But my favorite statement is, “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…” Only the “young and tight” can have tattoos. He sounds like a villain Mike Meyers created. As for flip-flops… well, I live in flip-flops. So Karl would hate me. Of course.

    He's entertaining when he's not attacking people who don't deserve it.

    he would hate me because I live in flip flops most of the time.

    Not that I care what he thinks anyway! I don't even know the man (obviously, duh), why would I care what he thinks.

    Exactly. I often live in flip-flops around the house, and admittedly, if I lived in Florida I might wear 'em out. But fundamentally, I agree that they should be limited to home or beach. In particular, often the WRONG people wear them in public; and men--nooooooooooooo.

    I love this quote even better: “I think tattoos are horrible. It’s like living in a Pucci dress full-time." OMG perfect!!!

    I wear them plenty, too. Actually he'd have lots of opportunity to rip apart my whole wardrobe, because I can't afford Chanel or Fendi.
