Karl Lagerfeld Interviews....Karl Lagerfeld

I can't think of a better way to spend 9'ish mins of my day than watching the Kaiser interview himself. Well, actually I can, but this Net-A-Porter produced video, released to run alongside the KARL launch, is actually quite entertaining.

Such as Karl telling Karl that he never plans what he's going to release from his pursed lips, "It's all about ze improvisation", which is probably why he comes out with solid gold things like, "You're also lucky because zey are very beautiful. It would have been difficult to have an ugly daughter" (when discussing Carine Roitfeld's children). Yes, it's like the spirit of Patsy Stone exorcised itself and swapped the bouffant for a ponytail.

Look out for the part where he discusses how to be 'chic' - "if you have to ask, you’ll never be chic". Fair enough. And also the bit where he smiles. According to urban legend and the ghosts in his crypt, Karl hasn't smiled since the 90s. Hence the signature eye shields.

Watch the interview below, which SO should have opened with the *other* Karl appearing in a cloud of Chanel No.5, just like a genie. I don't know about you, but every time I see him, I just have this tremendous urge to shout "DEATH DON'T TAKE ME NOW!!!"
