Karl LagerfeldYou know, with so many fabulous faux fur options, it's hard to understand why some designers refuse to offer cruelty-free designs. Or, at least, it was, but now we understand perfectly. Karl Lagerfeld explained it to us -- if hunters don't kill those "beasts," they would kill us. Obviously -- don't you see the murderous tendencies in those baby seal eyes?

In the same interview the great gloved designer says that animals should be killed "nicely" if possible, and admits that he's not a big fan of eating meat. However, he went on to say, "In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish."

Crazy Karl Lagerfeld

Other things he thinks don't warrant discussion? The banning of size zero models in the fashion industry: "There are nearly 30 percent of young people who are too fat. So let's take care of the zillions of the too fat before we talk about the percentage that's left." Also, the global recession: "It too was rotten anyway, so it had to be cleaned up."

Interesting that a man who designs pieces that are so relevant can be so out of touch, no?
