Karl Lagerfeld has an eclectic talent.

He is an iconic fashion designer, a good photographer, the proud owner of the Choupette cat, but above all he is an educated and acute man.

Careful of what is happening in the world around him, Karl also collaborates with the German magazine Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung as a political cartoonist since 2013.

Alfons Kaiser, editor in charge of the magazine, commented on the work of the designer with these words:

"His wit is unique. His sketches show that he stands in the great tradition of German political cartoons and was influenced particularly by “Simplicissimus”, the leading German satirical magazine of the pre-war times, which he read as a boy".

The latest work of Karl? A sketch depicting Angela Merkel in the foreground with the horrified expression, hands raised her face as she seems to think “What have I done?”. Behind the Chancellor, tick, creepy, Hitler says that the woman “Thank you very much for inadvertently allowing my descendants to be represented in parliament”. With this sketch Lagerfeld accuses Merkel of the rapid rise of the Alternative Party for Germany, a far-right political group, but also for helping to increase anti-immigrant sentiment among the people.

Lagerfeld, who grew up under the Nazi regime in Germany, commented on the growing popularity of this party:

"I hoped that something like this would never happen again in my life. I am ashamed of Germany".
