Remember these plastic fruits?
When I was younger, but already quite old, I used to eat these. Because the colors were too good to not be eaten.
Also because I was quite a sad child growing up. Joy did not overcome me as I had hoped (on swallowing the fruits).
And to bring you joy, hopefully, as always, I leave you with some constructive Karl Lagerfeld quotes. What he’s hating on.
January 2015, The New York Times Magazine. Ugly people: “I hate ugly people,” Lagerfeld told me. “Very depressing.”
April 2011, W. Made-to-order clothes: “You know, I hate made-by-order clothes. It’s up to me to fit into them, not to buy some orthopedic stuff to get the body into.”
March 2010, VICE. Intellectual conversation with intellectuals: “I hate intellectual conversation with intellectuals because I only care about my opinion, but I like to read very abstract constructions of the mind.”
Approximately April 2008, Prestige. Children: “That’s the last thing I want. I hate all children.”
And finally, last but not all,
April 2003, Vogue via New York Magazine. Nasty, ugly, short men: “What I hate is nasty, ugly people … the worst is ugly, short men.”
You know what’s my problem with that?
The world needs this.
