Karl Lagerfeld .. in memoriam

he end of an era has come ..RIP Monsieur Lagerfeld ... you gave fashion more than anyone.. you will be sorely missed on so many levels...... image by Robin Broadbent ..... in the words of Diana Vreeland" you gave them what they never knew they wanted"....…/…/karl-lagerfeld-dies-in-paris-1203034873/

 Lagerfeld should further be remembered for the unfiltered thoughts and words that fell from his lips as well as his fashion contributions ... He was honest to the core and sometimes even inflammatory but he was always wildly  intelligent,  comedic  and somewhat self-deprecating and some might say  a tad evil .. . Have a read!

**Don't dress to kill, dress to survive.

**I’m a kind of fashion nymphomaniac who never gets an orgasm.
**Work is making a living out of being bored.

**Trendy is the last stage before tacky.”
*Work is making a living out of being bored.

**I hate intellectual conversation with intellectuals because I only care about my opinion
**Life is not a beauty contest, some [ugly people] are great. What I hate is nasty, ugly people... the worst is ugly, short men."The brain is a muscle, and I'm a kind of body-builder.
**I am like a caricature of myself, and I like that. It is like a mask. And for me the Carnival of Venice lasts all year long."*

**Yes, some people say to me you're too skinny, but never a skinny person says that to me, only people who could lose a few pounds say that.
**No, I'm not a French designer either. I'm from nowhere. I'm a European, old European is all I am.
**I have no human feelings."

**I'm like a rock singer with one-night stands on the road.

**I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth.”

**I had an interview once with some German journalist—some horrible, ugly woman. It was in the early days after the communists—maybe a week after—and she wore a yellow sweater that was kind of see-through. She had huge tits and a huge black bra, and she said to me, ‘It’s impolite; remove your glasses.’ I said, ‘Do I ask you to remove your bra?”

**Forgiveness isn’t something I’m preoccupied with — turning the other cheek isn’t my trip.”

**Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants."

**What I do Coco would have hated. The label has an image and it's up to me to update it. I do what she never did. I had to find my mark. I had to go from what Chanel was to what it should be, could be, what it had been to something else

**Why should I stop working? If I do, I'll die and it'll all be finished. I'm lucky to work in the most perfect of conditions. I can do what I want in all kinds of areas. The expenses are not expenses. I would be stupid to stop that. Work is making a living out of being bored."
