Anna Wintour Reviews Karl Lagerfeld’s Most Memorable Designs for Vogue

Anna Wintour, who is the editor of Vogue, paid respect to Karl Lagerfeld in a new “Life in Looks” video. She talked about Lagerfeld’s famous designs and their friendship.

The video comes before the “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” show at The Met and the dress code for the Met Gala, both of which are in honor of the late fashion designer.

The movie starts with a tribute to Patrick Demarchelier’s photograph of Naomi Campbell on the cover of American Vogue in 1989. Campbell wears beautiful Chanel pearls with a fancy gold jacket and sporty pants. “I love the combination,” says Wintour.

Wintour, a friend and business partner of Lagerfeld, said in the video, “When you go back to the quintessential Karl, he would always say, ‘I’m just a dressmaker.’”

Wintour recalls Lagerfeld’s rebellious character in the late ’80s and early ’90s and his later focus on celebrity and Chanel.

The video concludes with an affecting image of Karl Lagerfeld at his cluttered workstation. Wintour says, “This last picture is a very moving picture of Karl at the end of his life.” “He was sitting at a desk that was so full and covered with books of every kind. Most likely, there are also a million iPads in there. You thought he’d be buried by it.”
