Karl Lagerfeld is such a hero. He’s a creative genius in fashion, film and photography. Besides that, I love his quotes.

Vice Magazine interviewed Karl in Paris. Here are some legendary quotes:

On his statement black shades: “They’re my burka”
‘A burka for a man. I’m a little shortsighted, and people, when they’re shortsighted, they remove their glasses and then they look like cute little dogs who want to be adopted.’
About his youth: “I was a beach boy in my youth.”
On his creative talents: “The three things I like best in life are fashion, photography, and books. There are a lot of other things I may like but that I’m not gifted for. I’m not gifted for music. I’m not gifted for singing. I don’t like to act because my life is a pantomime anyway.”
On fur: “If you cannot afford it, just forget about it. Don’t use it as an investment piece to show people how rich you are. Use it like a cheap knitted thing.”
On keeping in touch with Anna Wintour: “We speak via fax.”
On Technology: “Well, I hate telephones. I prefer faxes because I like to write.”

Usually I’m all but love for every Dutch designer. I thought I liked Claes Iversen a lot, turns out, he is very pro fur. Yesterday I heard the news that he received the Fur Innovation Award. I can’t believe that 1. there is such a thing and 2. that Claes is pro fur. Well Claes, that’s it for me. No more news about Claes on this website.

Personally I’m totally against fur, what an arrogant person you are when you think it’s okay to kill animals for your coat.  A couple of famous dutch people organized a protest during the Fur Innovation Awards. Among them was dj WannaBeaStar. (see picture below). She and some more people like Georgina Verbaan are asking everyone to ‘have a heart’. You can help.

Today I read an article on Valetmag.com about vintage clothes that I have to share with you. I’m a fan of vintage. The clothes are pretty unique, most of the times. Besides that, with the whole upcoming trend of fur coates, you can better buy a vintage fur coat than a new one. A fake fur one is always better, of course.

Back to the vintage clothes. Valetmag gives it’s readers a tip that I’ve never heard of. Here it comes: “All you have to do is mix one part vodka with two parts water in a spray bottle,” says Janie Bryant, the costume designer for Mad Men. “It works every time—that’s the power of vodka for you.”

It should totally remove every dull or nasty smell there is on the clothes. Now that’s a good tip!
