The World According to Karl Review

  • Karl Lagerfeld’s quick wit and silver tongue are as notorious as Chanel’s quilted handbag. This book is a cornucopia of his Karlisms: cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, but always impossible to ignore. Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. While simultaneously running Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently re-invented trends on the catwalk and in the street for half a century. His wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes and are regularly seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages the world over. Here, in his own deadpan words, are his exacting opinions on everything-from fashion, style, women, and Chanel to fame, life, and books. This is the ultimate repertoire of wit and wisdom from fashion’s sharpest pin. “I only know how to play one role: me.” “Think pink. But don’t wear it.” “I like everything to be washable, myself included.” “Change is the healthiest way to survive.” “I don’t recommend myself as a guest.” “There is one thing I love on earth: to learn.”

“This book is only quotes by Karl. I for some reason thought it was going to be a bit more like a biography. I guess the product description wasn’t all that clear. Either way Karl’s quotes are funny and interesting and I enjoyed the book overall, for the 30 minutes it took me to read it cover to cover. I just thought it was going to contain a little more information about him.” By Allison Davis

“Karl is an interesting philosopher! His views on himself, his family (especially Mom) provide real insight to this very talented and unique man. Fun read, although a few pages at a time make is easier to ponder his words. Great little coffee table book.” By Patricia Lines
