Karl Lagerfeld, Reduced To A Hundred-Some Words

karl
If you want a quotable one-liner, you look to Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel designer doesn't hold back, when it comes to his (often controversial) opinions. Whether he's talking about Adele's weight ("[She's] a little too fat."), children ("They grow so fast, and having adult children makes you look 100 years old. I don't want that."), or prostitution ("I'm rather pro-prostitution. I admire people who do it. It can't be much fun. Thank goodness for it. People need relief or they become murderers."), leave it to Karl to really lay it all out there, however addled it may be.

To commemorate the idiosyncrasies that make up Karl, English design agency I Love Dust took some of his most famous one-liners to create an image of the Kaiser that'll be sold on four limited-edition, $95 T-shirts for Karl's new Karl line (look for them at the 375 Bleecker street pop-up in NYC, Colette in Paris, and online, at karl.com). How many of the quotes do you recognize? Bonus points to anyone who knows what "mayonnaise" is in reference to, at the top of the head. (WWD)
