Karl Lagerfeld
In 1983 it entered like the creative director the House Chanel and with his sweeping imagination he could gather with new airs the best extracts of the style of Cocó. A fashion that seemed to become exhausted if the same he acquired in his hands an unsuspected force again. As definition of his work, Karl was using a Goethe phrase: "To do a better future with the elements of the past.”

Lagerfeld with his anxious and versatile personality has been capable of designing simultaneously very different collections: for its own signature, for French, Italian or Japanese signatures, but his name has been that of Chanel invariably joined. In the latter years it has turned also into an essential personage in all the "soirées" more or less related to the fashion. Also his personal look has suffered curious evolutions. In the 80s his love for the France of Luis XVl led him to dressing with shirts of cotton piqué, with embroidered sneakers of velvet and to comb with his already classic pigtail.

The current Lagerfeld look has different accents. Now it dresses exact jeans of the mark Diesel, jackets of Dior and shirts according to the London signature Hilditch and Fey. To preserve his stylized figure he has surrendered to a drastic meals diet and has had to do without his love to the chocolate cakes. But to his 70 (ó 75?) years it preserves his vitality and his caústico humor. This year there are his silver weddings with Chanel: Congratulations Karl!
