the man is a veritable minefield...

Karl_lagerfeld >> ...of quotable quotes that is.  We've been over this before, Karl Lagerfeld is a journalist's dream with all of his evocative one-liners.  Lucky for us, there is a new round to make you sit back in disbelief, for this is the man who helms Chanel.  Without further ado, straight from the horse's mouth:

From his humble side: "When I took on Chanel she was a sleeping beauty.  Not even a beautiful one.  She snored."

From his vulnerable side: "When I was 11 or 12 I was assaulted by a man and a woman.  The Germans are rather like that."

And my personal favorite, from his Miss Manners side, the notice in the men's toilets at Chanel: "Pissing everywhere isn't very Chanel."

For more Karl fun, please step right up.
