4 bits of travel consultancy provided by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld, the German designer holding the creative reigns of his own brand as well as Houses Chanel and Fendi, is master of not only an immense instinct for visual creativity but also of a flair to match when it comes to hitting the nail on the head. Labelled as Karlisms, Lagerfeld’s snippets of thinking out loud make the fashion industry (and so much more) sit back and ponder: they cover of a very precise while unexpected manner thoughts and feelings telling for us all.

’’We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.’’ is one such Karlism.

Talking about its message, it has to be noted that there is at least one more fundamental dimension of existence that is worth to be joined to Lagerfeld’s two: our need to explore and travel.

And, as I’ve already mentioned, Lagerfeld has the altogether unique gift of intertwining words with fashion to convey messages that are complete as they are appealing and compelling. What is it that I’m actually talking about? The way in which KL has chosen to speak of fashion and travel: through a collection!
