TODAY WE LOST OUR KAISER. KARL LAGERFELD WAS THE EPITOME OF A CREATIVE GENIUS AND THE VERY DEFINITION OF CHIC. HIS MARK ON THE INDUSTRY WILL FOREVER BE REMEMBERED.

 

To me, Look Numéro Un of the Chanel Collections was always an emotion. You really wanted to know what was on Karl’s mind. I always wanted to "visit" his brain. Every time Karl sent out the Chanel invitation, in the chicest possible way, you got a hint: a so-called "teaser" of what was on Karls mind.

As soon as you opened the invitation and the "theme" was revealed, my mind began to travel. How will Karl interpret the theme? What will the Chanel jackets look like? What will the set be? What will the music be?

His mind was grand, great, as fast as the light, and as bright as the brightest star on the horizon.

Karl we will miss you!

You made us think, dream and laugh.

In Liebe,

Julia X
