One of my most favourite quotes of all time is “My thing is to work harder than the others to show them how useless they are” which was said by none other than Karl Lagerfeld, the icon of all icons.
This quote in particular exudes traits of elegance, discipline and motivation, and has come in handy whenever I’ve hit a brick wall.
So when L’Oreal gifted me Karl Lagerfeld’s collection I must say I was feeling giddy to be able to see a piece of his work up close.
In anticipation to trying the collection out, I watched the campaign video to see what it looked like. Right away I was impressed by the respectful art direction as well as the use of Karl’s iconic quotes and rock-chic aesthetic.
Karl Largerfeld was one of fashion’s most influential and prolific creators for more than half a century. Following nobody’s rules, he boldly stepped where no designers had before on with a relentless quest to create the unexpected..
He often used eyeshadows as colours in his sketches. L’Oreal Paris has an inclusive message of beauty for all. Karl liked it when a collaboration resonated with his brand and would make a real impact to many people.
Overall I was really happy with the collection, and thought it was really cool how it brought two Parisian fashion icons together in one compelling collaboration. These products celebrate both his vision of beauty, his creative legacy and his personal commitment to celebrating feminine power.
