16 Mar C H A N E L | no more Lagerfeld
Fairwell to Karl Lagerfeld. Immensely talented, always referred to as a genius it will be difficult to come to terms with the fact that we’ll move on without this magnanimous person. I didn’t revere him as I studied the history of his ascent in fashion and it was difficult to forget that he grew up in a Hitler’s Germany, I can honestly say I didn’t trust him. Further his criticism on topics of wealth and health irked and entertained me equally. Lagerfeld was not one to shy away from continuous controversy. He openly criticized women for their size (calling Adele fat) and said that Kim Kardashian’s flashy lifestyle was to blame for her robbery in Paris. We were all thinking it. Yes we were. Lagerfeld was a walking history book and a forever epic meme. We will forever be engaged in conversations about Karl Lagerfeld.
These were the gifts he gave to fashion. He stayed present. As the models dashed away tears, and the audience stood in gratitude to applaud, the unforgettable memory of Karl Lagerfeld’s elegant, frivolous mind was lifted to highest echelon of fashion history.
