The Book of Karl





The World According to Karl is a collection of equal parts sage-like wisdom, quips and quirky statements from the inimitable creative force behind Chanel. I like to flip through this book from time to time and pick a random quote when I’m looking for inspiration or a laugh.

Today’s lessons from Mr. Lagerfeld:

Align with your intuition and you can do anything. “From the moment I agree with myself I can make of myself whatever I want.”

Don’t give up. “Jogging pants are a sign of defeat. You’ve lost control of your life, so you go out in jogging pants.”
