Karl Lagerfeld Buys Home in Vermont

Watch out for cow patties!

We shit you not. Karl Lagerfeld told reporters backstage at the Chanel show in Paris today that he bought a six-bedroom “landmark building” dating back to 1840 on Lake Champlain in Vermont. May as well strike while the dollar’s down! “I love it. It’s very much Emily Dickinson,” the Kaiser told WWD, adding that it reminds him of northern Europe. Karl also said he’ll start shooting the Chanel campaigns there. And, we imagine, fly-fishing.

So … is country the new chic? Do we need to summer in Vermont instead of the Hamptons? Karl — is your house a SHARE? Because we are so in. Ben & Jerry’s, here we come!
