Thanks for everything, my dear Karl. You've brought so much happiness into my life.
An era was dying and this is the final point. The world is a lot worse today. I'll miss you a lot.
I can't stop thinking about how intense the Fendi and Chanel shows are going to be. Like, almost unbearably emotional.
I wonder if they're going to go with a full-on tribute, bringing back Claudia and Linda and all those girls...
Fashion just lost one of it's last iconic figures. RIP
Absolutely a must-read! What I can read from all the tribute notes/anecdotes about him and his death (from celebrities to employees) makes sense with the portrait of KL wrote by Alicia Drake. Beyond the genius, Karl Lagerfeld spread the benevolence around him. I remember seeing him at Galignani (famous bookstore) one day. He went for his regular visit. I didn't want to disturb him (I was so intimidated anyway) so I acted like he wasn't there, but a woman visitor came to talk to him briefly (very nicely). He replied to her with politeness, while putting his hand on her arm like he knew her, then went back to his shopping. It wasn't the behavior I would expect from a "cold person" or a big-headed one I really appreciated his attitude... and respected him even more after that!
Karl was the last Couturier of the golden era. Nowadays artistic directors are doing instagram scrolling for inspiration, struggling to deliver a proper collection and acting like king/queen within the house they work for...
He was a visionary and will be missed.
'It was late, late in the evening,
The lovers they were gone;
The clocks had ceased their chiming,
And the deep river ran on.' - W.H. Auden
Goodbye Mr Lagerfeld. Parting is such sweet sorrow..
Regardless of your opinion on Karl (and I have never been his biggest fan in all honesty), you can't help but to admire that unrelenting work ethic, dedication to his craft. Something that ultimately made him more relevant than I imagine any other designer could ever be.
He represented a constant in the ridiculous, ever-changing whirlwind of fashion and to think he's gone really feels surreal. So many great creations for Chanel, Fendi and beyond, his imprint will always be on this industry. RIP.
All those great designers were passed by.... Now we have more businessmen than designers.
I'd thought he'd live forever
RIP to an icon. Chanel was one of the first brands that made me interested in fashion when I was younger. The grandeur of the shows, the beautifully styled shows, the top models walking...everything was a dream. And Karl was the mastermind behind that dream. I will miss him dearly.
You will be missed Karl, RIP
What a great loss... I am having a hard time imagining a world of fashion where his larger-than-life persona doesn't exist. Some of my fondest memories of following fashion through the years were his shows; no matter how much I nitpicked or bemoaned some of his designs, I would still find myself looking forward to whatever dreamy spectacle him and his team conjured per season. I will miss his scathing comments, his unrelenting creativity, the dogged work ethic I very much admired.
i hope Choupette gets a sizable amount from his estate. Her diet of pâtés and deconstructed sandwiches needs to be continued.
Rest in peace Karl.
I'm in shock than he's left, so RIP of this legend.
Oh Karl, you'll be missed so so much.
It's funny how many people around me talk a lot about his work for Chanel and Fendi. I remembered the first time I saw the Karl Lagerfeld runway collections in 2006-2007. And I thought wow, this is very interesting. And after that I discover more about his works and was completely in awe of his talent and work. Even in the most boring Chanel show, he was able to produce some of the best work among his peers. And his work for Fendi has been astonishingly amazing. The accumulation of his work is tremendous treasure of creativity. The world has lost a genius, a couturier and a creative mind. May you rest in peace, kaiser.
Latest documentary about Chanel and Karl
Couldn't have said it better myself. One of the saddest things is knowing that someone with his work ethic and passion is gone now. I get the sense that a lot of designers are in the fashion world for the wrong reasons these days.
That ALT tribute really made me sad, especially knowing the two didn't speak since 2013. Must be bittersweet remembering their great times together.
They didn't speak? why?
