Karl Lagerfeld to Be Laid to Rest in Private Ceremony

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld will be laid to rest in a “very, very private moment” with friends and family, in accordance with the wishes of the German designer, who died Tuesday at age 85, a spokeswoman for his brand said Wednesday.
Lagerfeld famously refused to attend funerals, with the exception of his longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, whom he stayed close to during his final illness, subsequently organizing and attending a funeral mass in his honor.
But he always made clear that he did not want a public funeral after his own death, telling Numéro magazine in an interview last year that he preferred for his ashes to be scattered near those of his mother Elisabeth and those of his cat Choupette, should she pass away before him.
“I hate the idea of taking up space with remains,” Lagerfeld told documentary maker Loïc Prigent in the 2012 documentary “Karl Lagerfeld Sketches His Life.”
“I am really against remembrances, that kind of thing. You have to just disappear. I hate funerals. Already I don’t like to attend them, so I wouldn’t want to expose anyone to anything that horrible. On top of that, since I have no religion, what do you want them to do?
