Karl Lagerfeld was on hand to present at European tech conference Le Web this week, although his interview mostly turned into a tour of the iconic designer's extensive electronics collection.
But really, who doesn't want to watch Kaiser Karl twirling a gloved finger on his various Apple devices?
In the charming, semi-awkward interview, Lagerfeld reveals several facts about his media diet:
- He doesn't use email.
- He says he's a "paper freak."
- He reveals a super swanky Celine briefcase where he keeps his 4 (!) iPhones, each emblazoned with his silhouette. (He says he has a Chanel briefcase too.)
- He claims to have "hundreds" of iPods.
- He live-sketches a photo of himself on an iPad, which he says he treats like "diaries" and that he owns between 20-30.
Who knew the Kaiser was a one-man Apple store?
Another important item was dropped at the conference: a preview video for his new lower-priced line, called Karl, which will be available exclusively online on January 25th.
