Karl Lagerfeld ist tot..

aber er wird ewig leben. Ich denke, jeder Mensch (egal ob Prominent oder nicht) hinterlässt Spuren. Jeder hinterlässt eine Art Vermächtnis, welches wir niemals vergessen werden. Karl Lagerfeld wird mit Sicherheit nicht nur durch seine Mode erinnert werden. Ich werde definitiv niemals seine Zitate und seine direkte Art vergessen.

Warum ich Karl Lagerfeld so toll fand..

Es gibt viele (unbekannte) Menschen, die unser Leben in irgendeiner Weise geprägt haben. Ob es Musiker waren, die uns in den Teenager Zeiten zum Tanzen gebracht haben. Oder Designer, dessen Hosen, Röcke, Taschen wir uns von unserem ersten, richtigen Gehalt gegönnt haben. Mein erstes Chanel Kostüm ist schon ein paar Jahre her. Ein Klassiker, zeitlos schön. Immer wieder. Ob den Blazer mit Jeans oder das komplette Kostüm für besondere Anlässe.

Doch Karl Lagerfeld faszinierte mich vor allem durch seine Art. Er war geradeheraus und nahm nicht unbedingt Rücksicht darauf, was andere über ihn denken oder sagen könnten. Eine Art “Prominenter”, der nicht weichgespült war. Ganz im Gegenteil.

Ich habe in den letzten Tagen viel über ihn gelesen und gehört und es hat vieles bestätigt, was ich schon geahnt habe. Er war jemand der aneckte. Aber genau das mochte ich besonders an ihm.

Es fällt mir nicht leicht, aber ich habe 25 seiner coolsten (meiner Meinung nach) Zitate herausgesucht und präsentiere sie euch hier. Ich liebe sie. Ich hoffe, ihr auch.

Ihr werdet recht bald feststellen, dass er das gesagt hat, was er gedacht hat. Unabhängig was andere darüber sagen könnten. Einfach nur großartig.

Zitate

Karl Lagerfeld Zitate Chanel

“What I’ve done, Coco Chanel would never have done. She would have hated it.”

“I don’t know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn’t know who she is.”

“Normally, I don’t recommend me for wedding dresses – they all get a divorce.”

“I don’t understand the change of hair. I adore Madame Obama, I love her. But there is a news reader at LCI which has this haircut… Frankly, this doesn’t suit her. The fringe was a bad idea, it’s not good.”

“Don’t dress to kill, dress to survive.”

“Life is not a beauty contest, some [ugly people] are great. What I hate is nasty, ugly people… the worst is ugly, short men. Women can be short, but for men it is impossible. It is something that they will not forgive in life… they are mean and they want to kill you.”

“Work is making a living out of being bored.”

“I don’t do selfies. But other people do, and they all want to do selfies with me. No, no, no,” Lagerfeld told the New York Times. “We live in a world of selfies now… Thank God, Sébastien, my assistant, he’s mean to the people in the street, mean and rude. I’m a nice person.”

“Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you.”

“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.”

“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.”

“We live in a dark and romantic and quite tragic world.”

“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.”

“A respectable appearance is sufficient to make people more interested in your soul”

“Books are a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose. I am the happy victim of books.”

“Fashion is a language that creates itself in clothes to interpret reality.”

“When people talk about the good old days, I say to people, ‘It’s not the days that are old, it’s you that’s old.’ I hate the good old days. What is important is that today is good.”

“We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.”

“Forgiveness is too easy. I can forget by indifference, but not forgive. I prefer revenge.”

“What i like about photograph is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

“The elegance is as physical, as moral quality that has nothing common with the clothing. You can see a countrywoman more elegant than one so called elegant woman.”

Karl Lagerfeld

“In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and even clothes, the discussion of fur is childish.”

“Luxury bags make your life more pleasant, make you dream, give you confidence, and show your neighbors you’re doing well.”

“There’s a price you have to pay for fame, and people who don’t want to pay that price can get in trouble. I accepted the idea of celebrity because of a French expression: ‘You cannot have the butter and the money for the butter.'”

“Guilty feelings about clothes are totally unnecessary. A lot of people earn their living by making clothes, so you should never feel bad.”

Amen
