El dolor de los famosos por la muerte de Karl Lagerfeld: así lo despidieron
Donatella Versace, Naomi Campell, Valentino Garavani, Victoria Beckham, Linda Evangelista, Carla Bruni y Stella McCartney, entre otras, compartieron su tristeza por la muerte del diseñador alemán de 85 años.
Este martes, la moda lloró la muerte de Karl Lagerfeld, el director creativo de Chanel. El diseñador alemán, de 85 años, era una de las figuras claves de la marca y quien continuó el legado de la fundadora de la marca, Gabrielle Chanel. Desde el Instagram oficial de la firma, escribieron un profundo mensaje de despedida.
It is with deep sadness that the House of CHANEL announces the passing of Karl Lagerfeld, the Creative Director for the CHANEL Fashion House since 1983. An extraordinary creative individual, Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the brand’s codes created by Gabrielle Chanel: the CHANEL jacket and suit, the little black dress, the precious tweeds, the two-tone shoes, the quilted handbags, the pearls and costume jewelry. Regarding Gabrielle Chanel, he said, “My job is not to do what she did, but what she would have done. The good thing about Chanel is it is an idea you can adapt to many things.” A prolific creative mind with endless imagination, Karl Lagerfeld explored many artistic horizons, including photography and short films. The House of CHANEL benefited from his talent for all the branding campaigns related to Fashion since 1987. Finally, one cannot refer to Karl Lagerfeld without mentioning his innate sense of repartee and self-mockery. Alain Wertheimer, CEO of CHANEL, said: “Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of CHANEL’s success throughout the world. Today, not only have I lost a friend, but we have all lost an extraordinary creative mind to whom I gave carte blanche in the early 1980s to reinvent the brand.” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at CHANEL, said: “Fashion show after fashion show, collection after collection, Karl Lagerfeld left his mark on the legend of Gabrielle Chanel and the history of the House of CHANEL. He steadfastly promoted the talent and expertise of CHANEL’s ateliers and Métiers d’Art, allowing this exceptional know-how to shine throughout the world. The greatest tribute we can pay today is to continue to follow the path he traced by – to quote Karl – ‘continuing to embrace the present and invent the future’.” Virginie Viard, Director of CHANEL’s Fashion Creation Studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, has been entrusted by Alain Wertheimer with the creative work for the collections, so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on.
"Es con gran tristeza que Chanel anuncia el fallecimiento de Karl Lagerfeld, el director creativo de Chanel desde 1983. Un extraordinario creativo, Lagerfeld reinventó las prendas de la marca creada por Gabrielle Chanel", anunciaron. Pero no solo en su lugar de trabajo se despidieron de él, sino numerosas figuras del mundo de la moda internacional.

Karl, I will miss your indescribable presence, watching your calm, quiet, genius mind working, your little jokes, amazing stories, and experiencing the clothes, sets, and productions only you could dream up. Thank you for believing in me and for the beautiful, incredible opportunities you brought to my career, but mostly, thank you for giving me the honor of knowing the magic behind the myth.

Dear Karl, thank you for all the sparkles .... thank you bringing beauty and lightness in our world, so much color in the darkness, so much wit in our dull days. I think you wouldn’t have liked too many tears, too many flowers or laurels, but you will be deeply missed. The whole world and I will miss you. RIP �� Cher Karl, merci pour toutes ces étincelles ✨.... merci d’avoir apporté tant de beauté et de légèreté dans ce monde si lourd, tant de couleurs dans cette grisaille, tant d’esprit dans cette époque éteinte. Je crois que vous n’auriez pas aimé trop de larmes, trop de fleurs ou de couronnes mais vous allez beaucoup manquer. À moi comme au monde entier.
This is a truly sad day. To say I knew this gentle man that changed how we all looked at the world, is an honour. My heart goes out to his loved ones and to all that felt his delicate and spectacular touch on an industry that is so crowded with characters. He held his place high above all and his sharp wit and mind blew us all away. A true icon... One that will be missed for many, many years to come and will always be responsible for so much creative genius. Thank you Karl for all the beauty and for seeing the world through those iconic glasses that were truly rose-tinted with a vision that was like no other. You will be very missed... And always loved x
