Karl Lagerfeld: ‘Thank God I can draw’

07 September 2009

Oh how we wish we were privy to the wonders of the Sundance Channel. Because from Wednesday 9 September  it will be airing Loic Prigent’s The Day Before series, which documents the 48 hours before last season’s Proenza Schouler, Fendi, Jean Paul Gaultier and Sonia Rykiel shows. Luckily for us though, YouTube has come up fashion trumps once again in a bid to chivvy along our excitement for fashion weeks, and the entire Fendi episode has been leaked online. Our favourite titbits? Karl Lagerfeld cancelling no less than five looks because they are ‘too dull’, the flurry of excitement as one particular Fendi employee spots him arriving, and King Karl’s insouciant snipe at his fellow designers as he says simply, ‘Thank God I can draw.’ Oh, and we so nearly saw what was under those sunglasses when you lifted them up to sketch Karl. Watch it here.
