The Kaiser of fashion

De flesta mode intresserade har nog inte kunnat undgå nyheten om att Karl Lagerfeld har somnat in i tisdags. Kommer som en super chock till vissa med andra har märkt av hans saknad under de senaste visningarna för Chanel där han annars alltid är på plats. jag tänker inte påstå att han var ett helgon, han hade vissa väldigt problematiska uttalanden bland annat om kvinnosyn och invandring, vilket är något jag tycker man inte ska sopa under mattan. Men på samma gång kan man(iallafall inte jag) glömma vilket modegeni han var och hur mycket han ändå gjort för modet under de senaste decennierna och hur många han har inspirerat och rört med sin konst. Hans enorma kreativitet kommer vara saknad i modevärlden men det blir början på en ny era med förhoppningsvis mycket spännande som väntar för modehusen har var chefdesigner för.


The news of Karl Lagerfeld's passing has been impossible to elude . It comes as a big shock for some and I'm not going to lie my chin did drop when I read the news on Tuesday afternoon, but I wasn't surprised since he had been absent on most of his shows this past fashion week which is something he does not tend to do instead walks out proudly after each show.

I'm not going to treat the man as a saint as he had lately expressed some quite problematic opinions around the preception of women and their mistreatment as well as immigration, which for most of us would be seen as thinking patterns of the past. I cannot though degrade the genious he was when it comes to fashion and the boundries he has pushed and the playfulness he has added to couture these past decades. He has inspired and touched many with his arts. His creativity will be hugely missed in the fashion realm but it will be intresting to see what modern twist his succesor(or successors) will bring to the iconic fashion houses that he had been the head of for so long, Rest in Peace, Karl.
