Up Close and Stylish в Инстаграме
Today we lost a legend - • Did you know that #KarlLagerfeld started his fashion journey as an assistant to #PierreBalmain? • Did you know that he moved to #JeanPatou in -58, were he went under the name #RolandKarl? In the spring of 1960 the skirts he designed was the shortest in #Paris and the collection was not well received. • Did you know that he started to freelance for #Chloé in -64, in the beginning he only designed a few pieces each season? • Did you know that he started at #Fendi in 1972 (the year varies though, some say -65) where he has stayed until the sad news hit today? “But it was #Chanel that propelled him to rock-star status as he sexed up the brand and lifted its profile with grandiose runway shows” as one obituary writes. He joined the house in 1983. In -84, when asked how he felt after a show he said - “I’m kind of a fashion nymphomaniac who never gets and orgasm”. • Did you know that he was the first designer to collaborate with H&M? A limited range of clothing, for men and women, that was released in 2004. He told CNN in 2011 - “I’m a walking label. My name is Labelfeld, not Lagerfeld”. • Did you know that his father was Swedish and his mother German? • Did you know that he spoke four languages? • Did you know that his cat, named Choupette, has over 100.000 followers on Instagram? • Did you know that his outspokenness got him into troubles at times? He told Vogue once - “I hate intellectual conversations with intellectuals because I only care about my opinion” and one of his most famous quotes is probably - “sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control, so you bought a pair of sweatpants” #RestInPeace “I’ve always known I was made to live this way, that I would be this sort of legend” - The World According to Karl
Spending this #PresidentsDay lounging in the sun- catching up on fashion magazines, eating frozen mango pops and feeling #BLESSED. You could almost say I’m multitasking too (even tho it’s of an extremely lazy sort... 🤣😬) by going thru photos, trying to decide what to post next. Came across this #UpClose from a few Sundays back, a date spent with my husband and daughter, and realized it almost looks like my first ever post on here. I had no idea what I was doing, why I was doing it and if I should keep doing it. I did. And still do even tho I still have no clue to as why. Guess we live in a world of hearts and thumbs up... 🙄
Spent yesterday at @miamidesigndistrict. Had a quick coffee with a fellow Instagrammer (see stories for more), shopped ‘til I almost dropped 🤪 and topped it all off with a glass of wine, with a friend, before meeting my husband for dinner. In other words - a perfect Saturday! 🥰#AtMDD Swipe for more.
We all have that one go to piece when we don’t know what to wear, right? Mine used to be a green, open back shirt from Forever 21 (might still be come to think of it...🤔). Now it’s this mustard colored knit that I bought, and wasn’t even sure of at first, in London two years ago. I wear it with everything from skirts to leather pants to sequin pants and I always feel 💯 when I do. Isn’t it funny how those “hm, not too sure tho” pieces ends up being our faves? From a couple of weeks ago - #ClaudiePierlot knit, #TomFord sequin pants, #Louboutin #SoKate120mm shoes and #Hermès #Birkin25.
I rarely go to the movies, I wait until it comes out on #AppleTv. Saw #BohemianRhapsody last night and I just have to say - if you haven’t seen it yet, go see it NOW! Such an amazing movie. Story. Actors. Rami! Just wow. #OscarWinners for sure. I really liked #BradleyCooper in #AStarisBorn too but (sorry to say) he has nothing on #RamiMalek. What are your #OscarPredictions? (Haven’t seen #TheGreenBook, #TheFavorite, #Vice or #TheWife yet). Can you tell I LOVE the Oscars? 🥰 Happy FRIDAY 💋 #DIOR skirt with #Louboutin boots.
