Siin on mõned Karl Lagerfeldi mõtteterad, mis elule vürtsi lisavad.
Võtsime ette vana mustvalge lemmiku, raamatu „The world according to Karl” – kogumiku tema meeleolukamatest tsitaatidest, ütlemistest, arvamistest. Arvasime, et oleks sobilik neid jagada siingi, et mälestust sellest ikoonilisest mehest jääks saatma muhe naeratus.
When I was very young, at the beginning my business was to work more than the others to show them their pointlessness.”
„I remember a designer who said her dresses were worn only by intelligent women. Naturally she went bankrupt.”
„Every era gets the fashion it deserves.”
„When you’re young you are always a bit of an idiot. What saves us is that we realize it later.”
„My work is not to make the Chanel suit survive, but to make sure it lives.”
„A touch of humour and a bit of disrespect: that’s what a legend needs to survive.”
„My greatest luxury is not to have to justify myself to anyone.”
„I’m always busy. You know, the more I do, the more ideas I have – that’s the funny thing. The brain is a muscle, and I’m a kind of body-builder.”
„I cannot live without books. The room is dead if there are no books.”
Ning muidugi ei saanud Karl üle ega ümber dressipükstest:
„Jogging pants are a sign of defeat. You’ve lost control of your life, so you go out in jogging pants.”
Aitäh Sulle, Karl!
