When Karl Lagerfeld passed away on February 19, at the age of 85, the fashion world and beyond responded with an outpouring of memories of the iconic designer. ‘Funny’, ‘caring’, ‘loyal’ and ‘genius’ are words that come up often in stories of his humor, kindness and the myriad ways he inspired everyone from his fellow creative directors to editors, models, celebrities and more. For such a prolific designer, an audience with Lagerfeld was a treasured rarity, and interviews were given sparingly and candidly. Which is why this film Lagerfeld recorded with NET-A-PORTER in 2012, to launch his namesake collection, bears sharing again at this moment; a wonderful example of his wit, spirit and forward-thinking approach. Lagerfeld interviewed himself on camera and posed some searching questions, answering with typical irreverence. Watch and admire.
