“This [François Holland] idiot will be as disastrous as Zapatero was” Karl Lagerfeld said in an interview with the Spanish edition of glossy fashion magazine Marie Claire published on Friday.

His last victimis is François Hollande, France’s Socialist president who replaced Nicholas Sarkozy this past May. Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has accused President Francois Hollande of destroying France’s economy by imposing painful taxes on the rich. “It’s a disaster. He wants to punish (the rich) and of course they leave and no one invests,” he said. “Foreigners don’t want to invest in France and that’s just not going to work.”

Hollande’s former companion and a one-time presidential contender Segolene Royal led the charge, saying the Paris-based German designer must apologise immediately. “There is no place for insults, especially from a designer who benefits from the image and prestige of France,” Royal said on RTL radio.
