When you hear the name “Karl Lagerfeld” you just can’t help but to feel ecstatic and nervous at the same time. Mr. Lagerfeld just have this insane presence that one cannot omit.
There was something about Karl Lagerfeld that fascinates me so much and that I had to dedicate my first post for him. Mr.Lagerfeld works with compassion and so dedicated to his creativity.
Karl Lagerfeld is a Designer, photographer, artist, author and even a weight loss guru. He is very known for his no holds bar when giving opinions and take to something or anyone. He even described himself as “a kind of fashion nymphomaniac who never gets an orgasm” and truly he does for he never sees to exceeds everyone’s expectations especially on the shows that he makes (for Chanel) which are always modern and youthful, you can’t even be critical about it for it is a Karl Lagerfeld’s masterpiece.
Karl Lgerfeld is known for his style and trademark ponytail, tie pin, fingerless gloves, fan and statement belt buckles. I see him as a person who practices stoicism for he never really show any emotions and that when he was asked about his feelings prior to a fashion show, he answered: "I have no human feelings." and that makes him a stoic.
Mr.Lagerfeld runs three fashion houses Chanel, Fendi and his own line Lagerfeldand he puts not only his design skills in these houses but also make use of his photographic skills to use by shooting all campaign imagery for the brands. Nobody can be so hands on like Karl Lagerfeld he really wants to be in control of everything which I find so interesting and makes me think if there is something that he can’t do.His ingenious works have made him who he is today and he himself made that happen accompanied of course, with his incredible creative mind. As he once said: " I was not born to be an assistant".
I really can put in to words how I adore Mr. Karl Lagerfeld and so I end this feature article through his words to live by which are called "KARLISM"
" I have never learnt from anyone, I have only learnt from my mistakes"
" I hate nothing more than ‘The good old days’ it makes the present, second hand"
" Think pink but don’t wear it"
" Shoes and accessory are important to me because with these everybody is model size"
" I love to be creative all the time… if not I would be bored and boredom is a crime"
" Change is the healthiest way to survive"
" I design like I breathe. You don’t ask to breathe, it just happens"
" Personality begins where comparison ends"
"FASHION IS A LANGUAGE THAT CREATES ITSELF IN CLOTHES TO INTERPRET REALITY"
" I’M LIVING MY MEMOIR, I DON’T NEED TO WRITE IT"
Big Thanks to Mr.Karl Lagerfeld for being such a big inspiration. He truly is one of a kind.!
