Well, I think he raises some fair points and I think his point with slamming both Wintour and Lagerfeld is that he isn't fond of the culture they have created around both being a designer and Vogue editor.
Karl is a designer who very much lives this world of Chanel, he juices it for all it's worth really and I think what Alaia is trying to say that people might have lost what it means to be a designer and that is
, not being in your own short films, throwing great parties, and launching a fragrance. I can understand why Alaia feels that way because he obviously works in a very different way. And I think that's ok - as long as Alaia said other young hopefuls don't think it will work in the same way for them.
As for Wintour, I'm not sure I totally agree with him though again he has a point. She's an icon of Vogue for this age but she's known for being a great business woman and her cold-hearted personality. I think she will be remembered because she did change the way American Vogue works however I think he is right when he says that you don't think of fashion when you think of Anna - it's all business.
