Recession ‘horrible but healthy,’ Lagerfeld says

The impending recession isn’t worrying Karl Lagerfeld, the Chaneldesigner sees it as cleaning up the world, femalefrist.co.uk reports.

The impending recession isn’t worrying Karl Lagerfeld, the Chanel designer sees it as cleaning up the world, femalefrist.co.uk reports.

“I see it like a cleaning up — it was too rotten anyway — so it had to be cleaned up,” Lagerfeld told Radio 4’s The Today.

“I see it like a healthy thing — horrible but healthy, like some miracle treatment of the world.”
The credit crunch won’t hinder Lagerfeld’s work; He thinks that creating beautiful pieces is even more important in today’s gloomy climate.

“People have different kinds of dreams. After all, people need a handbag, there are cheaper handbags. But if you can buy a beautiful one and if that’s your dream to buy, why not? I can be interested in a $20 million diamond I will never buy, without desiring the diamond. If you want only things you can afford, it’s boring.

“It’s great to see things you may not buy — because you don’t have the money — but it is very ugly to think they shouldn’t exist because you can not buy them.”
