    Why does he reference SATC so much? I'm sure everything he says is true but he sounds so bratty to me and he really wasn't that great.

    i won't miss him.

    to quote karl lagerfeld: "Ugh! With his big smile and gestures he reminds me of a sales assistant in a Midwest department store -- make that on the seventh floor." :lol:

    F*** karl lagerfeld...he reminds me of some overblown, puffed up, leather faced caricature of what he thinks a fashion designer is supposed to be...skeletor with an inflated idea of his own importance...he's basically criticising michael kors for the way he looks...THE WAY HE LOOKS??? :doh: ...has karl looked at himself in the mirror [email protected]!?!?! maybe he needs glasses-(probably, but when was the last time you saw one of these fashion freaks wearing a pr of glasses? HA!) karl looks like an extra from a bad vampire flick...and who made him the arbiter of good taste...he's really living in his own universe...


    i've never been a huge fan of kors myself, but it's because i find the clothes boring and predictable, not because i thought i was PRETTIER than him...UGH!!! that just makes me :sick: :yuk: :yuk: :sick:

    how utterly high school!!! :yuk:

    Not just this article. In general he is always referring to that show when talking about his collections or whatever else. :rolleyes:

    Karl seems the very unforgiving type

    guys you are getting off topic :p ,
    our dearest slimmer Karl has nothing to do with Celine, Kors or LVMH
    (and btw, i think he's getting back some weight :lol: )
    its not a matter whos the fat or the slim, the big smile,
    the fake tan or retirement age... :innocent:

    on topic and regardless what i think of Kors ability as a designer,
    he actually did a big favour to Celine.
    Celine was nothing when Kors took over,
    and he was obviously 'ignored' by his bosses,
    thats what this is all about.

    :winkiss:

    *avoiding the discussion about Lagerfeld*

    I second Lena's words - really, think about what Celine was 6 years ago, and compare that to what it is now. As far as I'm concerned it was the epitome of tacky licensed grossness specifically catered to the Asian market (no offense to Asian consumers - I'm one myself), and now it is one of the most consistently wearable brands within LVMH.

    Kor's negative sentiments regarding the lack of attention and priority from the brand's parent company are well founded. Dior is profitable simply because LVMH has been spending stratospheric amounts of money marketing it - Galliano's unbearable tackiness surely has nothing to do with it. Any truly successful brand also needs to have a coherent design language; Celine can claim to have that under Kor's direction. With both Slimane and Galliano at the helm, plus some other designer for the accessories and jewelry range, can Dior say that? Don't think so. I've said this time and time again - LVMH has absolutely NO CLUE in how to properly manage a brand. Neglecting, and now losing Kors, will be another one in long line of profound mistakes Bernard Arnault and his lemmings have made.

    Exactly, Dior and LV seem really like the ones "cared for".

    That's because most magazines are slaves to LVMH due to their huge advertising budget and enormous clout. Whatever LVMH wants to put in, and out of, the spotlight, is what people would or would not see in the glossy pages.

    :blink: ironic or not, seems like everyone in Paris today is talking
    about the success of Kors' last collection for Celine..
    seems hotter than Veronique Branquinho,
    most of my friends are mailing me on Celine & Kors...
    and we are certainly NOT a bunch of Kors fans :p

    Thanks for posting the article, Lena. It's always good to hear the big boys speak frankly. Provides valuable insight into the many hats they wear.
