  • “There is no secret to life,” Lagerfeld said. “The only secret is work. Get your act together, and also, perhaps, have a decent life.”

    So much respect for this legendary man. Chanel will never be the same.

  • My favorite Karl quote: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat.” A towering icon in fashion.

  • An icon.
