Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld – level 2

22-02-2019 07:00

Karl Lagerfeld was born in 1933, and he worked for Chanel as the creative director for 36 years. He was a fashion icon. He always wore similar clothing – a shirt, suit, tie and black glasses. This became his typical look.

Last month, he missed Chanel’s culture show. He was not well and recently he died. He was 85.

Difficult words: creative director (the most important person in the company; he made new clothes, told other people what to do), icon (a person who is respected), look noun (the way he dresses – what he wears).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
