Karl Lagerfeld, interviewed by Hélène Guillaume for Madame Figaro on 6 December 2017.
“I am a fashion encyclopaedia in general, but especially when it comes to Chanel... I loved her character and look in the portraits by Horst P. Horst and Man Ray. [...] I felt she bore some similarities to my mother. [...] She had that same air of a mean – yet funny! – brunette.”
Mr Karl Lagerfeld, Fashion Designer, Photographer, Artistic Director CHANEL from 1983 to 2019
