Haider Ackermann Responds to Karl Lagerfeld Nominating Him to Be Next Chanel Designer — "He’s Not Retiring"

Haider Ackermann Responds to Karl Lagerfeld Nominating Him to Be Next Chanel Designer — "He’s Not Retiring"

>> Last month, when asked who he would like to see succeed him at Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld replied: "At the moment I'd say Haider Ackermann." Ackermann, who already said that he was "honored" at the mention, explained Thursday: “I think Mr. Lagerfeld said something that was a really nice compliment. But I think people should take it as he took it: a compliment. No more, no less. And the man is still there, and he’s not retiring. Trust me on that one.  We know each other and we really respect each other. I spent last Saturday with him, and it’s a pleasure to be with such a person, because he is so very generous, and he’s got so many things to tell you. You can only just absorb and observe.” [DFR]
