In "Hipster News"...

God I hate that word. It's a stupid label invented by internet media to put people in tiny boxes.

But anyway, this article in the Hurffington Post is interesting....

Doing Karl-twheels for Chanel Bike Helmets!!!

Did you know that Karl Lagerfeld had six bicycles when he was a little boy? It's true. You can see him talk about it in an old documentary about him - not the new one where he's skinny but the old one, where he's still quite the nihilist. Check it out here. As he tells it "all the other children were very poor after the war in Germany and couldn't even afford one bicycle. But my parents were rich, and they bought me 6 different bicycles. And did I share any of these bicycles with the other children? No. I rode a different bicycle to school every day."
And there you go. That's Karl for ya.
By the way, this bike helmet has jewels on it and costs $7000~. And you wouldn't want to share it with anyone either.
