Karl Lagerfeld, farewell to a fashion legend

Legendary designer, photographer and artist, Karl Lagerfeld, passed away in Paris at the age of 85. For decades, Lagerfeld was the creative vision for two prestigious fashion houses, Chanel and Fendi, where he has left a lasting, unmistakable mark.

Assistant to Pierre Balmain in 1955, Karl Lagerfeld worked as a fashion designer for French fashion houses Jean Patou and Chloé, before collaborating with Fendi in 1965 where he became artistic director. In 1983, he was given the same role at Chanel 10 years after the death of its founder, Coco, simultaneously directing both brands.

A charismatic, eccentric designer with an unmistakable public image, Lagerfeld, in his long career, succeeded in making his name an independent brand.

Karl Lagerfeld has not only been the architect of the revolution that has changed some of the most emblematic fashion houses, but has also contributed to extending the reach of fashion by embracing every other sector, from celebrities to fine arts.

A fashion icon that he was, Lagerfeld added to his artistic talent the ability to adapt year after year to changes in fashion and society more generally, becoming one of the most prolific and innovative stylists, with a unique aesthetic sense that has influenced an entire generation of designers.
