Karl Lagerfeld: "Why Should I Slow Down?"

Why Should Karl Lagerfeld Slow Down, Asks Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld has said in the past that he has no plans to retire, and now he says he sees no reason to scale back the projects he takes on.

"I think I'm very lucky that I have all those projects, the possibility to do things in such great condition," Lagerfeld told the BBC. "Why should I slow down? What a bore! That is commonplace to think that people have to slow down and [not] burn out. You know, I have a very healthy life. I don't smoke, I don't eat too much, I don't drink, I never take drugs. So, my head is like a crystal ball and I have no need of slowing down."

He added that the reason the luxury business can't slow down, either, is because it responds to desires consumers can't control.

"We create a product nobody needs, but people want," he argues. "If you need an ugly old car, it can wait, but if you want a new fashion item, it cannot wait."
