Is Karl Lagerfeld retiring at 83?!
Karl Lagerfeld could be retiring after Chanel's cruise show in Cuba in May, Page Six reports. The 83-year-old designer, who is creative director of Chanel and Fendi in addition to an eponymous line, is reportedly "really tired," a friend told Page Six. "He's not doing well and he's ready to stop."
Lagefeld has helmed Chanel since 1983 and Fendi since 1965. In 2012 he told the press he'll retire when he dies: ""If I do [retire], I'll die and it'll all be finished … I can do what I want in all kinds of areas. The expenses are not expenses. I would be stupid to stop that. Work is making a living out of being bored."
