The legendary Karl Otto Lagerfeld passed away on 19th February 2019 and the fashion world will never be the same again. He was the creative director of the French fashion house Chanel, Fendi and also the head of his own brand Karl Lagerfeld. His contribution and passion for fashion have majorly defined what the luxury fashion industry is today. But that’s not all that he will be remembered for! Anyone who knew him or read about him, as a person, knew how enigmatic he was. These ten quotes serve as perfect proof, read on!
1. On His Childhood
When I was four I asked my mother for a valet for my birthday.
2. On Sweatpants
Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.
3. On Solidarity
I live in a set, with the curtains of the stage closed with no audience—but who cares?
4. On His Work Life
I am sort of vampire, taking the blood of other people.
5. On His Creativity
I have a sort of Alzheimer’s for my own work, which I think is a very good thing. Today too many people remember what they did—just forget it all and start again.
6. On Weddings And His Dresses
Normally, I don’t recommend me for wedding dresses—they all get a divorce.
7. On Labels
I am a living label. My name is Labelfeld, not Lagerfeld.
8. On Himself
I am a black diamond, unfaceted. Black diamonds are rare, hard to cut, and therefore uncommercial.
9. On Inking
I think tattoos are horrible. It’s like living in a Pucci dress full-time.
10. On Self Love
Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you.
