Karl Lagerfeld dies at 85yo
Driven by an outstanding take on fashion and sense of creativity, Karl Lagerfeld was passionate, powerful, and intensely curious – just like the woman who inspired him throughout his entire life; Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel herself.
Always at the forefront of the fashion industry, both designers were true pioneers
of their own times, provocative voices of their respective generations, and most of all, both Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeldwere boundary-pushing, extraordinary creative individuals who never settled for anything less than achieving excellence.
In addition to sitting on the throne of the fashion industry, Mr. Lagerfeld further
expressed his artistry through a lifelong passion for photography, illustration, architecture, and interior design.
“The greatest tribute we can pay today is to continue to follow the path he traced by – to quote Karl – ‘continuing to embrace the present and invent the future’,” declared Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at Chanel.
“For Fendi and myself, the creative genius of Karl has been and will always be our guiding light,” Silvia Venturini, Fendi Creative Director.
