Slik minnes moteverden Karl Lagerfeld

Instagram oversvømmes av kondolanser.

Tirsdag kom nyheten om Karl Lagerfelds død. Den tyske motedesigneren døde i Paris 85 år gammel.

I tillegg til å være sjefdesigner og kreativ leder for det erkefranske luksusmotehuset Chanel siden 1983 har Lagerfeld holdt rollen som det samme hos både Fendi og sitt selvtitulerte merke Karl Lagerfeld.

I en uttalelse fra Chanel tirsdag, som også var den offentlige annonseringen av Karl Lagerfelds død, ble det klart hvem som nå tar over som kreativ leder.

Også motepersonligheter både her hjemme og internasjonalt minnes nå den avdøde motedesigneren.

It is with deep sadness that the House of CHANEL announces the passing of Karl Lagerfeld, the Creative Director for the CHANEL Fashion House since 1983. An extraordinary creative individual, Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the brand’s codes created by Gabrielle Chanel: the CHANEL jacket and suit, the little black dress, the precious tweeds, the two-tone shoes, the quilted handbags, the pearls and costume jewelry. Regarding Gabrielle Chanel, he said, “My job is not to do what she did, but what she would have done. The good thing about Chanel is it is an idea you can adapt to many things.” A prolific creative mind with endless imagination, Karl Lagerfeld explored many artistic horizons, including photography and short films. The House of CHANEL benefited from his talent for all the branding campaigns related to Fashion since 1987. Finally, one cannot refer to Karl Lagerfeld without mentioning his innate sense of repartee and self-mockery. Alain Wertheimer, CEO of CHANEL, said: “Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of CHANEL’s success throughout the world. Today, not only have I lost a friend, but we have all lost an extraordinary creative mind to whom I gave carte blanche in the early 1980s to reinvent the brand.” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at CHANEL, said: “Fashion show after fashion show, collection after collection, Karl Lagerfeld left his mark on the legend of Gabrielle Chanel and the history of the House of CHANEL. He steadfastly promoted the talent and expertise of CHANEL’s ateliers and Métiers d’Art, allowing this exceptional know-how to shine throughout the world. The greatest tribute we can pay today is to continue to follow the path he traced by – to quote Karl – ‘continuing to embrace the present and invent the future’.” Virginie Viard, Director of CHANEL’s Fashion Creation Studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, has been entrusted by Alain Wertheimer with the creative work for the collections, so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on.

Merci pour tout Karl ❤️ Merci de m’avoir fait confiance avec tant de gentillesse depuis que je suis une toute jeune femme. Ah la la, votre liberté d’esprit, votre indépendance, votre talent, votre intelligence, votre gentillesse, votre humour, votre générosité, votre amour et fidélité pour les gens qui vous entourent, que toutes ces qualités qui vous définissent sont extraordinaires. Encore plus extraordinaires quand elles se retrouvent toutes en un seul homme. Merci de m’avoir transmis l’amour de la connaissance et du travail, de m’avoir appris à regarder devant et pas derrière, le passé vous ayant toujours agacé. “Parle-moi de demain” me disiez-vous. Je pense tellement fort à vous mais aussi à tous ceux qui vous entourent, que vous avez su choisir avec tant de finesse et qui vous aiment tant, qui vous sont si dévoués. Merci Karl 🖤🕊 “L’intelligence perdure” Karl Lagerfeld ——— Thank you for everything Karl ❤️ Thank you for trusting me so kindly since I was a very young woman. Ah la la, your freedom of mind, your independence, your talent, your intelligence, your kindness, your humor, your generosity, your love and fidelity to the people around you, all these qualities that define you are so extraordinary. Even more extraordinary when they are all in one man. Thank you for giving me the love of knowledge and hard work, for teaching me to look ahead and not behind, the past having always annoyed you.
