Lagerfeld’s work inspired haute couture for a half century and brought high fashion to a broad public.
Karl Lagerfeld, Germany’s premier designer, has died. Known as the king of fashion, he’s credited with popularizing high style.
During his 50 years in fashion, he worked for his own label, as Fendi’s chief designer, then for Chanel as creative director.
Born in Hamburg, he died age 85 in Paris, but his legacy will long outlive him.
He designed outfits for Kylie Minogue, for Madonna and for countless others. Here, Claudia Schiffer wore his elegant, innovative fashion.
He created fashion shows that were like theater, and conjured up a catwalk café scene following the terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in 2015.
Tributes to Lagerfeld celebrate him saying, “fashion is a game that has to be played seriously.” However, many in Germany recall his comment that “sweatpants are a sign of defeat.”
A piece of haute couture has died with Lagerfeld, say commentators here.
