The other day, Karl Lagerfeld has presented another triumphal Chanel show in Paris having appeared after the runway walk in his original image: sunglasses, pearly ponytailed hair and dark suit. Lagerfeld has always astonished with his view of fashion and has never been afraid of expressing his personal opinion regarding the trends and events taking place in the world of fashion. His citations are always straightforward and sharp, and we have assembled his top six citations.
About his haircut:
“When I got tired of the vague of long, curly hair (though my hair was curly) I started forming my original ponytail. It started in 1976. I do not like gel and all these styling products, moreover I am not gifted enough to imagine some haircuts. Ponytail is the simplest thing one can do with his hair”.
About sacrifices for fashion:
“I have spent 200 pounds to purchase Hedi Slimane suits”.
I think that tattoos are awful. It’s like wearing Pucci dresses during the whole business day”.
“I had worked a lot before I turned 20. It was difficult, but it was my motivation to enter Chanel that helped me”.
“Starting your ration with a portion of optimism would be enough”.
“Beauty or the desire to be beautiful is a dangerous motivation. Do not concentrate upon the beauty, respectful appearance is a trap for people to get interested in your soul, and our soul is our experience that makes us interesting for the people around”.
