From the Vice interview ... I found this quite interesting ...

Quote:
I think that you might have Asperger syndrome. Do you know what that is? Itís a kind of autism. Itís like an idiot savant.
Thatís exactly what I am. As a child I wanted to be a grown-up. I wanted to know everythingónot that I like to talk about it. I hate intellectual conversation with intellectuals because I only care about my opinion, but I like to read very abstract constructions of the mind. Itís very strange.

Thatís quite Aspergerís. Thereís a boy whoís 20 years old; you can see him on YouTube. Heíd never seen Paris from the air before and they flew him over Paris in a helicopter. Then they took him to a studio and he drew the entire city. Building by building, street by street.
I can do that with the antique Greek world.

Thatís what Iíve heard.
If I had to make another choice I would have studied languages and antique civilizations.

I seem to recall him mentioning that before somewhere...he definitely sees things in some different dimension than most people...

Yeah... If Karl Lagerfeld really felt like he could relate to people with Asperger he would have correct the ignorance of the interviewer who describes them as "idiot savants". This part of the interview only succeeds in diagnosing a severe case of idiocy in both the interviewer and the interviewee.

^ It's of a piece with his extreme detachment. The term seems an apt one for Karl himself ... clearly talented and very bright, but an EQ in the sub-basement ...

The Cat is Out of the Bag: Karl Lagerfeld Is Making a ‘Choupette’ Bag Chez Chanel

It’s no secret we’re obsessed with all things Choupette, the pretty kitty of Karl Lagerfeld. But could we soon be seeing a Choupette bag sold at Chanel? According to a tweet from Cathy Horyn, this is happening. “I just saw the Choupette bag at Chanel. Knitted, soft. Name of Karl’s cat,” she tweeted this afternoon.

So far, all is silent from Karl Lagerfeld and the unique beauty herself, @ChoupettesDiary. We assume the bag will premiere at this week’s couture show. As for us, we think a soft, knitted bag named after our favorite fashionable cat is just purrrfect, and we can’t wait to get our paws on it!

How dare Diane Kruger be so blase about the world's chicest cat!!??

...And Kruger says she has met the Kaiserís famously chic cat, Choupette. ďHeís obsessed!Ē she said, laughing. ďAn entire collection was inspired by his catís eyes.Ē

Is Choupette, you know, playful and friendly? Did she roll over for a belly rub, or is she fiercely aloof, secure in her superiority over the rest of us? ďItís a cat,Ē Kruger said with a shrug. ďItís a cat.Ē
