After all, the designer calls books “a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose” of which he is a “happy victim.” This fall, he’ll have one more to add to his 300,000-strong collection: “The World According to Karl”, a compendium of his all-time best quotes. Needless to say, we’re ready to hit “pre-order” already, but until it arrives, we’ll just have to tide ourselves over on these.
Karl Lagerfeld is taking advantage of the last week of the year to crack us up one final time with his notable quotables. Check out what he had to say in this wide-ranging interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning.

Karl Lagerfeld has lots of strong opinions, and he seems to love nothing more than sharing them with the world, whether the world asked for them or not.
