You were the best, Carl! Era. You had everything: intelligence, spirituality, taste, and education. And this incredible sense of humor! You supported everything we did, but always told the truth. We’ll miss you, our dear.
Karl Lagerfeld, Antoine Arnault and Natalia Vodianova
Such sad news! Carl was a genius and was always kind and generous to me and on a personal level and professional.
“Evolution — that’s the secret move.” Rest in peace, Karl Lagerfeld.
Everything today is wrong… I have no words, I am devastated by the loss. His sense of humor, irony, love, devotion, fashion, all that will be with us always. Thank you for the inspiration that you gave to the world, and for all those whose lives you have influenced. Every time I saw you, it was very exciting as the first. I’ll miss your arms! And I am so lucky to be familiar with you! I send all my love to the family of Lagerfeld and his family. I’m so sorry! We all love you. Rest in peace.
Carl, your talent has touched so many lives including mine and Gianni. We will never forget your incredible talent and endless inspiration that you gush! We will always learn from you.

The king is dead. Long live the King!
“Forget about the past. If you feel nostalgic, then your time is over. We have to adapt to the present, since it is not adjusted to the us” — Karl Lagerfeld. But we will remember you, Carl. Thanks for the femininity that you have erected a cult.
In correct editions, as you know, the obits are ready. Sometimes they wait for years. Sometimes the authors of the obituaries die before their heroes. Although to accept the standards of journalism very difficult. Once I personally met with Carl. It was in 2009, when Chanel did the famous show in a Small theatre. Of course, I was terribly worried, but not because he seemed too great. I was scared that he would be inanimate, inaccessible, do not understand what I’m asking is squeamish to press my hand with his hand in a white glove, would not want to answer, hide behind their black glasses and try to solve it, he hears you at all or not. As I remember, after the show, Karl remained seated on the stage, and it turns down journalists. We talked for about ten minutes. He firmly shook my hand. Was completely alive in the subject. Laughed and said. Gave thorough, full of respect for the interlocutor answers. We even talked a little bit German. So sometimes the myth of a man walking ahead of him. Later I loved to read an interview with Carl. He gave them as a man with nothing to lose. Not trying to be politically correct, didn’t call their press office to clarify, one can be hurt. He was always himself. Very alive and a normal person.
Dear Karl, thank you for all this light! Thank you for bringing beauty into the world and light the darkness painted with bright colors and added into our boring everyday fun. I think you would be against sobs and funeral wreaths, but know this: you will be missed! We will all miss you.

Carl! Legend. Rest in peace. Thank you for inspiring us with his example!
Carl is dead. But his creations will live forever.
Carl… can’t tell you how much you meant to me and how much I will miss you! I will never forget how kind you were to me, your laughter, your imagination. This week I came to France to see you and introduce you to your daughter… I’m late, my heart is broken. Rest in peace, I love you.
All who knew “the Kaiser” close, knew that he was leaving. Although, when we had dinner with him one last time, in August of 2018, it seemed like the Phoenix! Carl joked, sprinkled with quotations, admired, remembered — that long monologue was his trademark blend of: paradox, erudition, condescension, sarcasm, humor and tenderness! Especially this tenderness spilled on you when he suddenly removed the glasses, revealing look surprised boys… Now all overtaking each other, begin to write about him and remember him. I’m no exception. I’m just lucky little more than many to know him well and see often.But it was meeting outside the framework of the “selfie with a star”, a rummage in the archives of the not now… the Main, in the archive memory, it will remain all unique, the details… good-Bye, my dear Carl! Thank you for all that You so generously gave me!
Rest in peace, Carl. I remember how worried I was before the interview with you, and you were incredibly kind and witty. Thank you for invited me to some of the most glamorous events in my life. It was an honor to know you. And of course, thank you for the life hacks to use dry shampoo — now I will always remember you, pripudrivania your wig.
It was fantastic, gorgeous, sarcastic, restless — was the best. Karl Lagerfeld has done it all — and now after his death everything will be different.
Adieu, dear Carl. We’ll miss you.
My heart is broken. Thank you for everything!

Today ended an era in the world of fashion. Died Karl Otto Lagerfeld. He was a key figure in the world of fashion. It equaled, copied it many tried to be like him, but no one was to approach the master. Carl and I met in his youth on the purchase of his own brand, Karl Lagerfield, later we crossed paths on purchases of Fendi and Chanel. We often met in the showroom for lunch. What a pity that I have so little, together with photos, at that time nobody was doing them more often. I have never felt the age difference between us, Carl was always young. He had a favorite phrase: “watch and Learn”, and I owe him a lot very grateful. It I really learned a lot. I was always amazed at how Carl had just sitting somewhere just 10 minutes to draw 10 images Fendi. I have still preserved these sketches. And Carl was very fond of books, from which he drew inspiration. I was in his apartment in Paris 12 years ago and I have never seen so many books. There were thousands of them. After that, I can’t pass up a bookstore without buying a couple of books about art. Together with Carl the whole epoch is gone. The bright memory.

What a genius! What love for life! Great company! No meaningless moment. With love, Elton.
Elton John and Karl Lagerfeld
Carl was my magic fairy, he turned me from sasaciloa German girls in supermodel. He taught me how to understand fashion, learn the style and rules of survival in this industry. It was for the fashion world what Andy Warhol was to art. Such as it is, is no more. He was the only person who could make black and white playing colours. I will be forever grateful to him.
Karl Lagerfeld and Claudia Schiffer
The world did not know someone as great as you. My heart is broken, but at the same time I am so grateful for everything you taught me and did for me. Your kindness, sense of humor and support will live in the hearts of those who knew you, your talent will live forever! I am so lucky that I was able to work with you and meet you in person, lucky to know your kind heart and great personality. I will remember every moment spent with you. I can’t tell you how much your faith in me has influenced my life. This is a gift for which I can never thank you enough. It was you who made my dreams a reality. Mourn today along with all my family Chanel and those who knew and loved Carl.
You brought an incredible amount of beauty, taste and grace in this world! Carl, you will forever remain an icon, an inspiration to us all! It was so exciting and happy to see you, to be able to work with you and observe how you photograph my girls for their beautiful advertising campaigns. Like you, no longer, my dear friend, you will be terribly missed.

It was extremely brilliant, as all I do Maestro. How many people has he helped to start your journey in the world of fashion as the inspiration he gave us… the fashion World will never be the same…
