Because you know you want to. Some things have changed since this television segment was broadcast in 1985, but for our money, Karl Lagerfeld is still "the man with the ponytail who has made design history over and over again." Watch for the picture of the Kaiser as a child, "In my Tyrolean outfit, because it was my favorite outfit. I used to have many different ones and I loved to wear them. I had even for evening black velvet with a golden embroidery on it, and that was my favorite look."
Also, Lagerfeld explains the hand fans he used to carry with him everywhere: Because he doesn't smoke or drink, it helps to have something to do with his hands, "and you can use them as a notebook, or to blow other people's smoke out of your face, you see."
