Karl Lagerfeld Says He's Never Going to Retire

As Suspected, Karl Lagerfeld Is Never Going to Retire

Can't stop, won't stop. Karl Lagerfeld says the reason he's constantly producing clothing, advertising imagery, and coffee-table books is because none of it feels like work.

"Working is something boring for people who go to an office to make a living," said Lagerfeld in an interview with Vogue UK. "I do a job. I wanted to do it as a child. I love fashion. I like the world of fashion. I'm lucky to work in the most perfect condition. I can do what I want in all kinds of areas: the expensive, the not expensive, and all that. I think I'm very lucky. I would be stupid to stop that. Why should I? It's not work. Work is when you make a living being bored."

Of course, most people don't have the freedom that the Kaiser enjoys, which might have something to do with why he has so much fun at the office.

"When I took over Chanel, it was 30 years ago, the owner said, 'I've got the business. The way it is, I'm not proud of it. Try to make something out of it. If not, I'll sell it.' And it became a huge modern business. So the limit is up to me to create, because I have what the French call carte blanche. No one ever tells me any limit. That is luxury at its best."
