Sweatpants are a sign of defeat…and other ‘Karlisms’

Recently notable for calling Adele “fat”, Karl Lagerfeld is not only famous for being the mastermind behind the house of Chanel, but also for his unapologetic remarks about life love & fashion. Here are a few of my favorite Karl quotes:

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

I don’t like standard beauty, there is no beauty without strangeness.
-Karl Lagerfeld

“If you spend your time waiting for the inspiration to come to you, for the ideas to “gush forth”, it will be too late. It is like with magazines: there is a deadline…we have deadlines and that is a healthy form of discipline. it creates ideas.”

Karl Lagerfeld

“There is only one thing I am really interested in, and that is knowing.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“Clear thinking at the wrong moment can stifle creativity.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“When people want to be liked for what they did, they should stop.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“People who say that yesterday was better than today are ultimately devaluing their own existence.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“Don’t use expensive clothes as a screen for your personal doubts. Be proud of yourself and not only because you wear expensive designer clothes. They are great, but lots of people are happy without them.”

— Karl Lagerfeld

“I’m living my memoir, I don’t need to write it.”

— Karl Lagerfeld, Amen to this one sir

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
