Karl Lagerfeld era, hasta hoy, historia viva de la moda. Tras haber sido hospitalizado de urgencia el lunes, su fallecimiento este martes en París ha conmocionado al mundo.
Al frente de la firma francesa Chanel durante 35 años de los 85 con los que ha dejado este mundo, numerosos amigos y conocidos con los que el modisto ha trabajado a lo largo de su carrera o a los que, simplemente, ha inspirado con sus diseños han querido despedirse de él de forma pública.
Muchas modelos, diseñadores, it girls... han coincidido en recalcar la generosidad y amabilidad que tuvo con ellos Lagerfeld en lo personal y en lo profesional. También han querido compartir anécdotas y recuerdos.
There will always be a place in my heart for you, my dear Karl. I will never forget your kindness, your generosity and how much we have laughed together..I will truly treasure those moments forever. You have inspired us in so many ways Thank you, maestro. I love you. Mi querido Karl, nunca olvidare el cariño y respeto con el que siempre me has tratado, tu generosidad, tu mente brillante y todo lo que me has hecho reír. Todos los momentos vividos contigo desde el día que te conocí, son un tesoro que se queda guardado en mi corazón para siempre. Gracias por inspirarnos con tu arte durante todos estos años. Gracias maestro. Te quiero mucho.
Rest in peace, Karl. I remember being so scared to interview you and yet you were in fact incredibly witty and generous. Thank you for inviting me to some of the most glamorous experiences of my life, it was an honour to know you. Oh yeah and thanks for the dry shampoo tip, will always think of you as I powder my wig.
This is a truly sad day. To say I knew this gentle man that changed how we all looked at the world, is an honour. My heart goes out to his loved ones and to all that felt his delicate and spectacular touch on an industry that is so crowded with characters. He held his place high above all and his sharp wit and mind blew us all away. A true icon... One that will be missed for many, many years to come and will always be responsible for so much creative genius. Thank you Karl for all the beauty and for seeing the world through those iconic glasses that were truly rose-tinted with a vision that was like no other. You will be very missed... And always loved x
Dear Karl, thank you for all the sparkles .... thank you bringing beauty and lightness in our world, so much color in the darkness, so much wit in our dull days. I think you wouldnt have wished for too many tears, too many flowers or laurels, but you will be deeply missed. The whole world and I will miss you. RIP Cher Karl, merci pour toutes ces étincelles .... merci davoir apporté tant de beauté et de légreté dans ce monde si lourd, tant de couleurs dans cette grisaille, tant desprit dans cette époque éteinte. Je crois que vous nauriez pas aimé trop de larmes, trop de fleurs ou de couronnes mais vous allez beaucoup manquer. moi comme au monde entier.
I cant express with words how sad I am for the loss of Karl. He was everything in the fashion industry, a legend. But he was much more than that. A kind gentleman, fun, inspiring and very passionate in everything he did.. Thank you for sharing with me part of that wonderful life that you had. All my love to his family and the closest ones. #KarlForever @karllagerfeld
Karl Lagerfeld You will never be forgotten ... & forever, youll be missed. In recent years, We have and will continue to lose so many legends .... time goes by and inevitably we lose the ones who paved the path before us to thrive . This changes everything .... we have to take responsibility , step in and step up..... we have to use more compassionate resources, we have to sustain, we have to get creative - make something new while honoring the hard work done for us ..... we have to do what pioneers like Karl would want us to do - make big impacts and change the world thru fashion #NoFur #Sustainability #LoveOnly #NoShame #JustLove
Karl, since the day I first walked into your office on rue Cambon you took me under your wing and brought me along on an incredible journey. My first campaign ever was for Chanel, the second for the Karl Lagerfeld brand. We did numerous campaigns and shoots together in the years that followed but the real beauty and luck about that was getting to know you, observe you, learn from you, laugh with you, enjoy so many special moments with you. Some of the best ones being from your mansion in the south of France where I stayed with you whenever we worked on a campaign. After long shoot days we would end up in Rampoldi for a feast of wonderful food and wines and you were one of the most delightful dinner dates Ive ever had, sharing stories about everyone in the restaurant and enjoying the food with an infectious delight I so appreciated because of my own love of food. Oh the many wonderful meals we shared.. the many stories.. the many late nights sitting with you in your vast library in candlelight talking about your childhood, work, books, writers, architects, artists, nature, food, people... everything. You knew everything about everything I saw you last time at the Chanel show at the MET and I wanted to run out to you on the runway and hug you because I had a feeling.. well, I dont think you passed away, you were just picked up by a UFO and brought back to the planet youre from. Because you were as close to a super human that I have ever come across. I will miss you very much and always think of you. You gave me so much.. My life number is 19 2-19-2019 RIP @karllagerfeld @chanelofficial
Every time I try and write about this man, all i do is cry. He changed my life, he believed in me when so many others didnt including myself. He also introduced me to some of the most important and special people in my life. He is a visionary, a genius but more than that.... a dear friend. Outside of fashion, he was one of the most interesting and caring men I have ever met. I am so lucky and grateful to have had him in my life, worked with him and been able to spend time with him.... Although now, I wish it had been more. His legacy will live on forever. I miss you more than I could ever try and describe. I wish I had been able to tell you how much you meant to me. I love you @karllagerfeld all I can say is thank for the bottom of my heart
