Karl Lagerfeld Sketches His Life
The Life: Karl Lagerfeld
"Don't think too much," he says, sitting on the couch, eyes glinting behind his less-opaque-than-usual sunglasses. "Watch the world and clarity comes like this." He makes a snapping gesture. "It's not something you look for on the inside. You have to stay on the move." Okay, moving. I'm big on that. But
"Well, if you're lazy, you're lazy, and there's nothing I can do. You know, it's like that song by Marlene Dietrich." —Karl Lagerfeld
For fashion itself, he wants to underthink it. "What I like best about girls is their personality," he says. For Chanel's spring show, where the models "protested" on "Boulevard Chanel," he adds: "The girls walked like in life. I think I'll do it for the next show too, because it makes fashion more modern, no? When I see the things that other people do, it seems a little dated." While I'm at it, what designers is he watching? "I like J.W. Anderson; he's my favorite. And there's this young girl in London, Simone Rocha. I think she's lovely." Though Karl is thinking about next season, he doesn't want to think about 2015 too much yet. "I don't answer that until the year is really over." As for 2014, "from the beginning to now, it was beyond okay. I had a good year. But then you want another good one. You want to get used to the good ones."
What should I wear next year? "Ah," he says. "Every woman has to be her own stylist. She has to know what she likes. I don't believe in establishing it for her." Funnily enough, I'd tried on this pink bouclé Chanel dress for the No. 5 dinner we're going to, and I looked like a piñata. I tell Karl that I went home, put on my trusty flares, a T-shirt, and a Chanel jacket. I just felt better, like myself. "I hope you have a date later," Karl says. "Karl, you're my date," I reply. "Pfff," he says.
