As you know, Karl Lagerfeld passed away. Kaiser Karl’s contribution to fashion is immense and he was never afraid to speak his mind, for better or for worse.
These are some great quotes by Lagerfeld. Some are controversial, and I love them for that. To me, he was a free man, forever young.
“I’m very impeccable and clean before I go to bed. It’s just like before I’m going out. When I was a child, my mother always told me that you could wake up in the middle of the night and be deathly sick, so you always have to be impeccable. I laugh about it, but I think everyone should go to bed like they have a date at the door.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Be politically correct, but please don’t bother other people with conversation about being politically correct, because that’s the ending of everything. You want to create boredom? Be politically correct in your conversation.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“They are this horrible thing where you are distorted. The chin is too big, the head is too small. No, this is electronic masturbation.” – Karl Lagerfeld (referring to selfies)
“I’m a working-class person, working with class.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Fantasy is often better than reality. It’s much more inspiring not to go to places than to go.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“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.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Youthfulness is about how you live, not when you were born.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Forgiveness is too easy. I can forget by indifference, but not forgive. I prefer revenge.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Guilty feelings about clothes are totally unnecessary. A lot of people earn their living by making clothes, so you should never feel bad.” – Karl Lagerfeld
