Karl Lagerfeld - Karl Lagerfeld's Tisci Dior Tip
Karl Lagerfeld has tipped Riccardo Tisci to take over at Christian Dior after John Galliano was sacked.
Karl Lagerfeld has tipped Riccardo Tisci to take over at Christian Dior.
The fashion house has been looking for a new creative director following the sacking of John Galliano and the Chanel designer thinks the Givenchy boss would be the perfect replacement at the French label.
He told W magazine: "Well I'm not a consultant there, but I think Riccardo Tisci would be good, and then Haider Ackermann at Givenchy - not because they're friends of mine, but because they're good."
Although Haider has been tipped to take over from Karl at Chanel, he dismissed the speculation saying: "It's not his world I don't think."
Meanwhile, Karl also revealed how he thinks suits by Tom Ford don't look good on him and think they look better on his younger friends.
He explained: "Tom Ford is not as good on me as younger men. And you know why? Because I wore the same kind of clothes thirty years ago-Italian-made by Caraceni. I love the way Tom Ford suits are made. They're chic; they're elegant. But on my younger entourage, they look better than on me.
"I wear Dior Homme - my old Hedi Slimane suits. The ones they do today, too, as long as they don't get too flou. And a little Lanvin. I used to love Margiela, but it's not him anymore and it shows a little.
"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. I never had one button touched on a Dior suit. Size 48 is my perfect size."
