Karl Lagerfeld Will Never Retire, Criticizes Mundane Office Workers

Karl Lagerfeld is 553 Choupette years old by now (79 in human terms), but he has no plans to hang up his dark sunglasses and ponytail attachment just yet. Karl, who designs for Chanel, Fendi and his own Karl Lagerfeld label, says that the second he retires, he might as well die because his life will be over - but what about the cruises, old lady dancing and retirement home porridge he's missing out on? It's apparently, not the Lagerfeld way to go. Karl also comments that he doesn't understand those who work in an office situation:

''Why should I stop working? If I do, I'll die and it'll all be finished. There's something boring about people who have to go to an office for a living. I wanted to do this job since I was a child. I love fashion. I'm lucky to work in the most perfect of conditions. I can do what I want in all kinds of areas. The expenses are not expenses. I would be stupid to stop that. Work is making a living out of being bored.''

Also speaking about the Chanel Little Black Jacket exhibition which is currently open in London, Karl reveals his favourite black&white snap:

''One of my favourites is of a woman with white hair and no make-up called Micheline Chaban-Delmas, the widow of a former French president. She is genius and she is in competition with nobody. It has nothing to do with fame, beauty or youth - she is beyond that. No make-up, no botox, nothing. That's why that one is the best.'
