For some reason, WWD interviewed Karl Lagerfeld about his sleeping schedule. Maybe they wanted to make sure sleeping was something Karl Lagerfeld actually did? We can’t blame them given the ever-growing list of projects he’s taken on over the past few years.
The most adorable piece of information gleaned from that interview: Lagerfeld is woken up every morning by Choupette nuzzling his face. Doesn’t that sound lovely? It definitely sounds better than what my cat does, which is find anything in my room that makes an obnoxious noise and proceed to jump on and scratch at it until I feed her.
Anyway, Lagerfeld also says that he’s holding out hope for a 48-hour day. “I always have in my mind that there are more hours in the day than 24. But in the end I find out there are only 24 hours,” he says, adding that “I hope one day we’ll have 48-hour days.”
He also says his crazy work ethic stems from a never-ending quest to do better. “For me, everything I did is vaguely OK. I just have to kick my ass to do better.”
We’re pretty sure if anyone can make a switch to a 48-hour day happen, it’s Karl.
