Famed for his acerbic comments about Adele, Pippa Middleton, Greek people, Russian people, dieting, sweatpants, children (we could go on - when it comes to barbed words, he doesn't discriminate), it's no surprise that Thames & Hudson has decided to compile Le Monde Selon Karl - or The World According to Karl in English.
Set to be released in September but available to pre-order now, the book, which is the brainchild of Patrick MauriĆ©s, Jean-Christophe Napias and Sandrine Gulbenkian, will feature 50 illustrations by artist Charles Ameline to accompany the quotes. It has reportedly received Mr Lagerfeld's seal of approval, though he wasn't involved in its production. 

A teaser from bookstore Barnes & Noble gives a taster of what to expect:
"Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants." 

"What I've done, Coco Chanel would never have done. She would have hated it." 

"I remember a designer who said that intelligent women don't wear her dresses. Obviously, she went bankrupt." 

"I am a kind of fashion nymphomaniac who never gets an orgasm."

John Galliano’s Television Debut

JOHN GALLIANO will record an hour-long television interview on Wednesday with US talk show host Charlie Rose. It will mark the designer's first broadcast appearance since being dismissed from his position as creative director at Dior in 2011.
News of the television interview first began circulating last month, but was originally denied by the designer's spokespeople. Galliano will film the full one-hour slot with Rose, with an air date yet to be confirmed. According to reports, Oscar de la Renta - a close friend and supporter of the designer - was instrumental in arranging the interview.

Rose is renowned for his simple, intimate show formats - via which many guests have opted to tackle sensitive subjects. Galliano first broke his silence with an exclusive  interview with Vanity Fair, published last week. 

I cannot wait to get my hands on book with Karl's quotation. I bet it's going to be mad. 

Have a good day :-)
