Fashion Designer Karl Lagerfeld Has Passed Away

 

It is with great sadness that we have just learned that Karl Lagerfeld has died. An absolute icon and legend in the fashion world, Lagerfeld passed away in Paris at the age of 85.

His contribution to fashion and culture cannot be overestimated.

Chanel’s most famous designer (second only to Coco Chanel herself) was one of the most prolific fashion designers within the industry. This is a man who was inevitably going to work right up until he took his last breath…..and that he did. We all knew he would quietly leave us one day, without warning. He had been ill for several weeks and uncharacteristically missed some recent shows. But nothing could prepare us for this news. I think we all expected him to be the one that would go on forever. One thing is for sure, he will never be forgotten.

RIP you true creative genius.

We sign off with a most appropriate quote from the designer…….

 
I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth.
— Karl Lagerfeld
