Do you ever find out that you’ve missed something so important… so legendary, so monumental, that feel you nothing but shame at your own ignorance? That’s how I feel right now. I have been living in the dark. Unbekgnost to me, a documentary was made about Karl Lagerfeld in 2007 by Rodolphe Marconi.
Here is a summary of the documentary:
“For the first time, Karl Lagerfeld, the innovative designer who has ruled the House of Chanel for more than two decades, agreed to trust a director to create an artwork based on his life. After three years of crisscrossing the globe filming the outspoken icon, Rudolphe Marconi unveils the inner workings of the influential and enigmatic star.”
The DVD should be arriving in my mailbox any day now and I am just about dying with anticipation. An entire hour and a half of Karl…heaven. I can only hope to be a wiser and more inspired person after I finish watching.
Here is a quote from the documentary I found online:
“I very much like the people in Houston, but I will not change in the pee-pee room of the Atlanta airport. I have to have a private jet,” – Karl Lagerfeld
I can only hope that Karl shares similar wisdom in the rest of the film.
