Karl Lagerfeld to stay on at Chanel

Fashion Lately: Let's Hear it for Karl

Don't expect to see any shake ups at Chanel anytime soon, with 76 year old designer Karl Lagerfeld insisting "the world can count on me for a long time".

Constantly dodging rumours (Lanvin's Alber Elbaz is said to be next in line to the Chanel throne) , and questions about his retirement, Lagerfeld adds "I still have so many projects that I sometimes don't know where to begin. Chanel will still need some clothes when I'm 89."

Adding photographer, creative director of Fendi and designing for his own Karl Lagerfeld label to his résumé, let's thank the fashion gods that he's sticking around for a while yet.
