No. No. Noooooooo!!!

I just read this on The Zoe Report and I am hoping it’s not true!

Is Karl Lagerfeld Retiring?

Karl Lagerfeld

According to reports by Page Six, Karl Lagerfeld may draw the curtain on his illustrious career after Chanel’s upcoming Cruise show in Cuba next month. Rumored to be 83 years old, the designer began his work at Chanel in 1983 and Fendi in 1965 and also found time to design for beloved French brand, Chloe. In today’s current climate of designer musical chairs, Lagerfeld remains somewhat of an anomaly, designing multiple collections a year for Chanel, Fendi and his namesake line, while also acting as photographer for all of his campaigns and additional editorials. Insiders claim the powerhouse is getting tired (who can blame him), but Lagerfeld has never hinted at a desire to retire and we wouldn’t be surprised if he followed in the footsteps of Coco Chanel, who remained at the helm of the company until she passed away in 1971. Regardless, all eyes will be on his Cuban fashion show on May 3rd.

“For our 2013-2014 fall/winter season, we sought to celebrate the love between Fendi and Rome with a very feminine campaign evoking a chic and modern Roman holiday,” said Lagerfeld.

How clever and glamorous and fun is this?

Lady Fendi ~ Citizen K Magazine

For the new issue of Citizen K Magazine

photographer Alice Rosati shoots 

model Rose Smith as the very fabulous

pastel coiffed Lady Fendi,

tooling around what appears to be London

dressed in top to toe Fendi, and adorned

with the brand’s signature bags.

 As the aloof aristocrat she breathes elegant excess

and regal entitlement, and leaves me wondering

can one really survive the winter without that yellow cloak???
