4 min read

Yesterday marked the end of life of fashion’s most iconic designer of all time, Karl Lagerfeld. The Channel creative director died in Paris after suffering from an ailment, which camped him indoors for some months. Not only was Karl known for his unusual runway shows or beautiful creatives behind the Channel brand, but also known to have given some of the world’s most inspiring and memorable quotes of all time. In honour of a day old of his passing, we remember the legend with 15 of his own said quotes.

  • “Luxury bags make life more pleasant, make you dream, gives you confidence, and show our neighbors you’re doing well”
  • “Everything I say is a joke. I am a joke of myself”
  • “Don’t dress to kill, dress to survive”
  • “Trendy is the last stage before tacky”
  • “I am a fashion person, and fashion is not only about clothes. It’s about all kinds of change”
  • “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants”

  • “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”
  • “I hate intellectual conversation with intellectuals because only I care about my opinion”
  • “I’m not crazy not to discuss fashion with men. I couldn’t care less about their opinion”
  • “If you throw money out of the window, throw it out with joy. Don’t say: ‘One shouldn’t do that’-that is bourgeois”


  • “A sense of humor and a little lack of respect: that’s what you need to make a legend survive”
  • “Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Evolution is the secret for the next step”
  • “Never use the word ‘cheap’. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans. It’s up to you”
  • “I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth”
  • “I’ve always known that I was made to live this way, that I would be this sort of legend”

Rest on Legend!
