I came across a quote a few days ago from Chanel's beloved (or loathed, depending on his latest public sassing) genius in resident. It reminded me that underneath the sunglasses and sequins and ridiculous white ponytail, is a truly remarkable artist. This one's for you, Karl, with so much love.

"Please don't say I work hard. Nobody is forced to do this job and if they don't like it, they should do another one. If it's too much, do something else. But don't start doing it and then say, 'Aaaah, it's too much' ... Then, suddenly, they become artists. They are too weak. Too fragile. Non. We have to be tough. We cannot talk about our suffering. People buy dresses to be happy, not to hear about somebody who suffered over a piece of taffeta."
