bear, bear, KARL


This is rather old news, but I was pouring over the September 2008 issue of W Magazine and I came upon this article about Karl Lagerfeld and the bear that he was asked to create. It's essentially a representation of him in teddy bear version. Each bear costs $1, 500 and only 2,500 of them have been launched. I would love to own one of these bears, but alas, that is but a wish that won't come true. You can read the whole article here. It's a rather short article but there are a couple of really good quotes from Karl Lagerfeld. I have to say that I absolutely adore him. Not only is he a fashion genius, but he is superbly talented, creative and he has that particular aura about him that shows him in this light of confidence and complete self-knowledge of his ability. He knows he's brilliant, but he doesn't exactly flaunt it. He has this mystic bubble around him that only he can penetrate. He is the only one who has full knowledge about him and his life. Ok, I'll stop blabbing now, but I really do love Karl.

I think he flaunts his talent a lot...he speaks like an ultimate authority to be listened to at all costs. Still, I love that he poked fun at himself and made the bear.

Crazy price, but I would have loved to have owned one. If nothing else, he is an icon himself! Hope you're having a beautiful weekend :)
