A fashion architect who is known to keep his birthday veiled, but who cares about his age when the trends he incorporates in our lives become ageless. Yes, we are talking about none other than Karl Lagerfeld, the couturier who has been called the “unparalleled interpreter of the mood of the moment” by Vogue magazine.
Illustrator Tiffany Cooper has come up with a caricatured biography of Lagerfeld entitled “Karl’s Secrets” and this is how we get to know that this fashion designer finds comfort working in his nightshirt and hotel slippers, and when it comes to manicure, he does it himself.
Well, fashion is not just a seven letter word for Karl and he does not settle for anything but what suits the best no matter what. This is quite evident from an incident which he recounts as:
“I remember one time in winter in 1956--it was beyond cold. And I went to see my father at the George V with only a suit on...He said to me, "But you will die! You will get pneumonia!" And I said, "I prefer to die than to wear another coat than the robe style in blue cashmere in the Dorian Gray window. If not that one, I prefer to freeze." So he bought the coat.”
We bring you striking quotes by Karl Lagerfeld that reflect his world view..
