Virginie Magazine features an in depth interview with icon Azzedine Alaïa, in which he openly shares his opinions about fashion, Karl Lagerfeld and even Anna Wintour:

How do you feel about Karl Lagerfeld?

I don’t like his fashion, his spirit, his attitude. It’s too much caricature. Karl Lagerfeld never touched a pair of scissors in his life. That doesn’t mean that he’s not great, but he’s part of another system. He has capacity. One day he does photography, the next he does advertisements for Coca-Cola. I would rather die than see my face in a car advertisement. We don’t do the same work. And I think that he is not doing a favor to young stylists who might think it works that way. They’re going to fall before they retire.

Read the entire interview here, definitely a must read.
