^ LOL I hope you did not miss my humor, sarcasm and overly exaggerated French there...

It was funny... Decades ago I was once in a Chanel boutique and I swore the "sales consultant" was going to have a stroke when I said quilted. We got into the whole word thing which reminded me with this commercial.

And... no... Scarification is so blase. Branding or tattooing should be sufficient.

So there is a new book.. It is demode, I can tell...It does not exist...

Karl Lagerfeld has been described as an "unbelievable Narcissus" who demands Pepsi in crystal glasses from courtiers who serve him like a king, in a book by the fashion mogul's former right-hand man.
Karl Lagerfeld and Me - published in Munich this week - is a penetrating look at the German-born Chanel and Fendi genius dubbed "the Kaiser" in the design world, where he has become a billionaire through his creations.
It reveals how he once informed a member of his team that she had lost her job by presenting her with a caricature depicting a hand holding her decapitated head Marie Antoinette style - in the presence of his entire company.
Written by Arnaud Maillard, his former assistant of 15 years, the book is part demolition job, part adoration.
Maillard said: "He was and remains a genius and I have great respect still for him. But after everything that happened to me I wanted to describe the other side of Karl.
"He is an unbelievable Narcissus who needs an eternity to pull himself into shape in the mornings. Every photo session is preceded by him pinning up self-portraits everywhere.
"He surrounds himself with courtiers, none of whom may contradict him. It is as if he is in the 18th century. Wherever he goes he has to have Pepsi Cola in a Baccarat crystal glass and it has to be replaced every 30 minutes."
He claimed his former boss rubbed himself all over with La Prairie, the most expensive skin cream in the world, twice a day.
Maillard also said Lagerfeld's employees had to be on hand 24 hours a day.
While Maillard said Lagerfeld was often very generous, he also said he could be "merciless".
If he no longer wanted anything to do with a person, "then he simply doesn't speak to them, as if they did not exist", he said.

I'm sure he wasn't trying to be mean to the fired employee by doing that. At least she can put that art work on ebay.

^ Yes, what an honor!! Beats the old "budget cutback" excuse hands down!! I'll open the bidding at $5, BTW...

Although this is not strictly a Karl item- who among us here can not feel a deep sense of horror and compassion for this poor girl...

Rachel Bilson's Los Angeles home was burglarized when she was out of town earlier this month, and the thieves took off with "hundreds of thousands" worth of her personal items. The DKNY collaborator and InStyle magazine columnist lost her entire Chanel collection, designer clothing, bags, vintage shoes, and vintage jewelry given to her by her grandmother. She has yet to file a complete report of missing items to police or insurance, reportedly because the list keeps growing.

i made up my mind!! scarification, branding, tattooing... demode!!!!!
i'm of to Lessage to have it EMBROIDERED!


About the book: yet another angry-EX who's trying to make it big by "writing" the good and evil (with certain stress on the latter) about his supposedly tyrannic boss... doesnt it all sounds way too familiar??!
So Karl is a diva! seriously! what else? the world is full of assistants who suffer from sadist company managers who find unexpected ways of imposing respect on their entourages... and they dont go out and publish books on the matter!!
... resentment? passť, hm?
