Karl Lagerfeld's Quotes On New Website

Karl Lagerfeld Calls Himself "Annoying, Impossible, and Hard to Please"

>> Every time Karl Lagerfeld opens his mouth, he says something newsworthy — and now that he has his own website, he'll be that much more quotable that much faster.

The new site,, was created mostly to sell the masstige line he designed for Net-a-Porter, and it will also host his higher-end Karl Lagerfeld Paris collection when it debuts this fall. The best non-shopping part of the site is the "World of Karl," where you can find out things like where he gets his glasses or what project he's working on next. But the most fun posts are the ones that simply quote Lagerfeld directly. A sampling of his musings, below:

On scheduling: "If someone gives me a to-do list, I say, "Thank you, this is nice." One needs things to throw in the wastebasket."

On his temper: "I know how annoying, impossible and hard to please I can be. I wouldn't recommend myself as a guest to anyone."

On where his inspiration comes from: "The best things I've done in my life, I saw them in my sleep. This is why I have a sketch book in my bed."

On cleanliness: "If you put things away in a too tidy way, then you will only find what you are looking for. You will never be surprised, nor delighted by fortuitous discoveries."
