The House of KARL LAGERFELD shares, with deep emotion and sadness, the passing of its creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, on February 19, 2019, in Paris, France. He was one of the most influential and celebrated designers of the 21st century and an iconic, universal symbol of style. Driven by a phenomenal sense of creativity, Karl was passionate, powerful and intensely curious. He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy as one of the greatest designers of our time, and there are no words to express how much he will be missed.
Even with a lot of speculation around the designer’s health, which began earlier this year as he didn’t take a bow during his most-recent Haute Couture show in Paris, Lagerfeld continued to work tirelessly until the end.
His career spans over seven decades and he was most known for creative leadership at the houses of Chanel, Fendi, and his namesake brand.
