CHANEL ZEUS: KARL LAGERFELD

Updated on July 25, 2010

:: FOR ME, CHANEL IS LIKE MUSIC [KL]

• Karl Lagerfeld quotations:

• For me, Chanel is like music. There are certain notes and you have to make another tune with them.

• When I took over Chanel, nobody wanted it anymore. People said don’t touch it, it’s dead, it’s over. I saw possibility for the years to come.

• I'm never content with what I do. I live in a sort of permanent dissatisfaction. I think that's the secret to doing things well.

• I like imagination -- and the way I think things could be, had been, or should be -- better than reality.

• If you want respect for your past, it means that you have a problem

with your present and even more with your future.

• Fashion's life is short. It's six months, six months, six months. It's

not something you do for a great future.

• Forgiveness is too easy. I can forget by indifference, but not

forgive. I prefer revenge.

• I am a fashion person, and fashion is not only about clothes -- it's

about all kinds of change.

• The imagination can transform all sorts of personal insanity into

elements of self-invention, and you need to make use of this.

• Don't look to the approval of others for your mental stability.

• I'm open to everything. When you start to criticize the times you live

in, your time is over.

• A respectable appearance is sufficient to make people more interested

in your soul.

• The most important thing is to do things, not to have done them.

• I hate leisure, except reading. I'm really a person made to work, if

sketching is considered work.

• I try not to be sentimental and obsessive about possessions. I love

collecting, but I hate owning.

• Loving someone is fine, but they have to love you back or it doesn’t work.

• There is something unexciting about buying something exciting online. I like the physical contact with the goods.

* Nothing scares me more than people with some doll collection. As a child, I never played with anything like toys. I wanted to be a grown-up.

* Florals are for middle-aged women with weight problems.

• Chanel is an institution, and you have to treat an institution like a whore – and then you get something out of her.

• I hate the word “avant-garde.” It was used, overused, and often used for useless things. So I do not use that word any longer.

• I am not allowed to have a favorite bag because I have to create the next one. I have to like change to keep it alive.

• Believe it or not, I love rap.

• Some designers think they do Art, but they think other designers do not.

      Do You mean, Sir, the beauty of selected "masses" - b/c, regretfully, not all 'layers' of masses, can afford the price of High Fashion (o;)
