THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KARL
Posted on March 17, 2014 by Marco Maggetto
How to survive this crazy world? It’s simple, by taking inspiration from a modernist guy who believes in globalization. A person, like none else, that lives the present and never looks back. Karl Lagerfeld has several books published under his name, a fantastic film by Loic Prigent and many other appearances but this charming little book is a must have for those who believes “Karlism” is a philosophy of life. “The World According To Karl” is a collection of his memorable quotes on fashion, women, art, politics, love and life’s highs and lows. The book is illustrated à la Alexey Brodovich, Harper’s Bazaar legendary art director, and was created with the full approval of the designer himself. Cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes tranchant, Lagerfeld’s “bons mots” are always impossible to ignore. Find out a designer that resisted so many years at the top of “fashion world” and understand it take a firm personality, humor and sincerity to stay true to your values. And if you don’t get a sort of wisdom by his experience, where else would you get it? Enjoy Karl’s world, manias and quotes in this exquisite book written by Jean-Christophe Napias and Patrick Mauriès.
