Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic Chanel and Fendi fashion designer who died at age 85 in Paris on Tuesday morning, was famous for his perfectionism. So it isn’t the least surprising that before he passed, Lagerfeld left his store employees a lengthy manual with detailed instructions on how he wanted to be remembered after his death.
In a five page document first obtained by German tabloid BILD, the designer instructed employees to remove all items from his store windows upon his death and simply place one bouquet of white roses and a company statement on display instead.
Lagerfeld said he wanted them to “locally purchase a large, white flower bouquet existing out of white roses, to place in the middle of the (main) window,” according to the memo.
On Wednesday it was reported that here will be no funeral for the famed fashion designer — which is exactly what he would have wanted.
According to the French news agency, AFP, a spokeswoman from Lagerfeld’s eponymous line, Karl Lagerfeld, told the outlet, “His wishes will be respected.” In interviews he was very open about what he wanted to happen after he died. He wished to have his ashes scattered with those of his mother and late partner, Jacques de Bascher, and also preferred to eschew a ceremony.
