Karl Lagerfeld muere a sus 85 años

Karl Lagerfeld muere a sus 85 años

El mundo de la moda está hoy de luto. A sus 85 años, el diseñador y director creativo de Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, falleció en París.

El diseñador había sido ingresado de urgencia el pasado lunes en el Hospital Americano de París, donde esta mañana falleció.

Nacido en Alemania en 1933, Lagerfeld comenzó su carrera en el mundo de la moda en la década de los 60 colaborando con Fendi y Chloé. Años más tarde llegó a la cabeza de una de las maisons más importantes del mundo, Chanel, donde se mantuvo por 35 años dando vida a algunas de las mejores colecciones de Alta Costura de la historia.

Alain Wertheimer, CEO de la firma le dedicó unas palabras: “Gracias a su genio creativo, su generosidad, su excepcional intuición, Karl Lagerfeld fue un avanzado a su tiempo lo que contribuyó ampliamente al éxito de Chanel a través del mundo”.

“Hoy, no solo he perdido a un amigo sino que todos hemos perdido una mente creativa a la que le dí carta blanca en la década de los 80 para reinventar la marca”, agregó Wertheimer.

En el último desfile de Chanel en París sorprendió que el káiser no saliera a saludar al concluir la pasarela, y que saliera en su lugar Virginie Viard, quien fue su mano derecha en la firma.

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.
