Whenever the divine Karl Lagerfeld opens his mouth, the fashion world and the whole pop culture is swimming in joy - who could take over his fabulously ironic and always witty words and over the top style?
This time, he expressed his feelings about the retiring of legendary desginer Valentino: "He should continue. It's no fun, he will be bored". Karl has always said he would never ever give up fashion (thank God!) since it keeps him young (as he stated in the documentary Signe Chanel) and he would be bored without it: "All my contracts are for life, so I am like a death row inmate."
Anyway, he just couldn't stop being a bit critic about the celebrations of designers (he refused to have his own 25th Chanel anniversary celebration), in his lovely way of course: "There were never any celebrations, there will never be any - I hate that. Fashion is about today and tomorrow, not about yesterday. If you have to be taken seriously because you have a heavy past, I don't think it's a good thing. I don't want to remember, I want to do things and go ahead."
How true. But you know Karl, when it comes to geniouses like you or Valentino, you DO deserve to be celebrated...
