Accompanying the online launch of the Karl by Karl Lagerfeld Collection which debuted today, Net-a-Porter produced an exclusive face to face interview featuring Karl interviewing… well, Karl himself.
Matter-of-factly sharp, brilliant and insightful, the witty exchange was very Karl.
This was the first time the iconic designer interviewed himself on camera, let’s hope it won’t be his last, as he claimed.
“There is no secret to success, the secret is work, get your act together. And also perhaps a decent life: Don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t take drugs, all that helps.”
“It is up to you to work and make every day as perfect as possible. It’s a question of will and discipline.”
“I like to be surrounded by girls who are inspiring. It’s their attitude, their spirit, their approach to life that makes them muses, but they don’t have to be fashion freaks, I am not too crazy about them.” – On the word Muse.
If you needed a good kick to get you going today, or to keep you on the right track, Karl’s words of wisdom will certainly do the trick, as they did for us. Enjoy the full video below.
