Karl Lagerfeld Fashion Museum : Modemethode

After Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld’s works find place in museum. The exhibit laid out in the honour of Karl Lagerfeld is called  “MODEMETHODE” meaning Fashion Method.

Karl Lagerfeld’s closest friends, Lady Amanda Harlech who is known as the right hand for him, has put together designer’s work and displayed in an exhibition (March 28–September 13) in Bonn, Germany. But to the world’s surprise, Karl Lagerfeld is at arm’s length to the event.

Lagerfeld said in the reports:

“I don’t think it’s a good thing when you dive into your past… I think it’s interesting for people to see what I do, but I don’t have to go there because I know what I did, and sitting on your laurels means they stop growing.”

Amanda Harlech made a point when she said that it would have taken a lot more space had the museum decided to document Lagerfeld’s entire professional life,Karl Lagerfeld has been in the industry for a good 60 years.

She took 6 months to probe through the archives of Karl Lagerfeld’s work in Chloé, Fendi, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld.

There will be various exhibits related to Karl Lagerfeld in one way or the other. From Lagerfeld’s desk overflowing with all sorts of paper and books ( an Oscar Wild book too) to his designs at Chloé, Fendi, Chanel. 

The background music has been created by one of his long time friends  Michel Gaubert, based on the sound of a pencil scratching the surface of paper ( How creative can one be ).

I think it is imperative that every Fashion genius has a place in their own museum.
