Fashion: Ooh, Karl, we don't know where you find the time
Yesterday was a big day for Karl Lagerfeld. Not only did he present his spring 2013 collection for Chanel, he also announced the opening of a new own-line boutique in Paris next February.
How much spare time does he have? Not only is he creative director at both Chanel and Fendi, his K Karl Lagerfeld line – a more accessibly priced selection of shirts and signature high collars – launched earlier this year on Net-a-Porter, and he cut the ribbon on a pop-up store devoted to his image in Selfridges last month.
Previous shows for his eponymous label have seen models wearing bejewelled motorcycle helmets, complete with interior iPod slots. Clearly, there's no danger of the creative juices running dry.
When asked backstage at Fendi last week how he managed to keep on top of his workload, Karl Lagerfeld simply said: "I love what I do. That's the best motivation there is." A lesson to us all, perhaps.
