The World According to Karl Review

  • Karl Lagerfeld’s quick wit and silver tongue are as notorious as Chanel’s quilted handbag. This book is a cornucopia of his Karlisms: cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, sometimes shocking, but always impossible to ignore. Karl Lagerfeld is a modern master of couture. While simultaneously running Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous fashion house, he has consistently re-invented trends on the catwalk and in the street for half a century. His wise, surprising statements pop up like offbeat news flashes and are regularly seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages the world over. Here, in his own deadpan words, are his exacting opinions on everything-from fashion, style, women, and Chanel to fame, life, and books. This is the ultimate repertoire of wit and wisdom from fashion’s sharpest pin. “I only know how to play one role: me.” “Think pink. But don’t wear it.” “I like everything to be washable, myself included.” “Change is the healthiest way to survive.” “I don’t recommend myself as a guest.” “There is one thing I love on earth: to learn.”

“This book is only quotes by Karl. I for some reason thought it was going to be a bit more like a biography. I guess the product description wasn’t all that clear. Either way Karl’s quotes are funny and interesting and I enjoyed the book overall, for the 30 minutes it took me to read it cover to cover. I just thought it was going to contain a little more information about him.” By Allison Davis

“Karl is an interesting philosopher! His views on himself, his family (especially Mom) provide real insight to this very talented and unique man. Fun read, although a few pages at a time make is easier to ponder his words. Great little coffee table book.” By Patricia Lines

Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon Review

  • Fashion is ever-changing, influenced by the key designers that capture a moment in history; and Coco Chanel is arguably the most significant influence on women’s fashion in the twentieth century. Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon is a compilation of Megan Hess’ stunning illustrations of the 100 most quintessential moments through Chanel’s history, from Coco’s incredible life, to the impact of Karl Lagerfeld and the incredible items that have become fashion icons – the little black dress, the luxurious bags and accessories, glamorous jewellery and of course the renowned Chanel No 5 perfume.
  • Interspersed with historical anecdotes and famous quotes from Coco herself, Karl Lagerfeld and other key fashion icons of the era, this book is an elegant and immersive introduction to the moments that shaped Coco and the iconic Chanel brand – and how fashion, in turn, shaped their lives.

“I love this book as much as I love all other books by Megan Hess. She is beyond talented at illustrating and putting images/commentary in a way that is pleasing to see. I have to admit that I never read Chanel’s biography, so I definitely learned a lot about her from this book. But even if you’ve read every book on Chanel, this is a unique and fresh way to learn even more about the fashion icon and see her life through whimsical illustration.” By WithBowsOnTop

“When finishing this book I thought “is it about Chanel or the illustrator?”. After mulling it over I came to the conclusion that it was excellent. The author/illustrator gave highlight info about Chanel and surrounded it with lovely illustrations; even though I’ve read all I can find about Chanel I came away with the desire to delve deeper into her life. So kudos to the author for making me want more. Excellent book.” By Deck Distractions

“This is more than a coffee table book, it is a book of mini adventure as you try to find the elusive Kaiser amongst the sea of celebrities. As your eyes roam across the pages, you can be easily sidetracked by the other famous faces in this book. Once you start your search, it may be hard to put this book down. The writing is also worth the read. You will not be bored with this one!” By A. Butterfly

“This is a very fun, tongue-in-cheek book. My husband and I have a silly fascination with Karl Lagerfeld, so this was very amusing to us. I bought it for laughs and it was pretty great. Not to be taken seriously, of course. Tons of “cameos” in here from celebrities and fashion world people…it’s a hoot. Published in 2015 and will probably seem quite dated in just a year or two, but we enjoyed it. The illustrations absolutely “make” this book!!” By Angela M
