News just in from WWD is that Karl Lagerfeld, the German born multi-talented Creative Director of the house of Chanel, Fendi and his own line, has just been notified by French President Nicolas Sarkozy that he is to be decorated as a commander of the French Legion of Honor.
We're impressed. We also believe he has 'added' incredible value to the French economy through his designs, particularly of note for Chanel and his overall innovative and creative approach to fashion and the arts in general...not to mention the additional business he must have created for Apple (a library of Ipods), Diet Coke... etc but that's another story.
