A Fashion Icon Is Dead

A Fashion Icon Is Dead

Karl Lagerfeld, the German fashion designer who helped set the industry standard for five decades with collections that dressed celebrities such as Princess Diana and actress Keira Knightley, has died. "Regarding Gabrielle Chanel, he said, 'My job is not to do what she did, but what she would have done".

Lagerfeld had little use for nostalgia and kept his gaze firmly on the future.

The Karl Lagerfeld brand garnered recent buzz with his Karl x Kaia capsule collection, designed in collaboration with 17-year-old supermodel Kaia Gerber.

Despite the company of his fashion family and the small coterie of male models known as "Karl's Boys" who often accompanied him, Drake argued that Lagerfeld "is alone in a crowd".

Lagerfeld was never in any doubt that he was born to lead, confessing he had asked his Prussian mother for a valet for his fifth birthday. I wish I could give you one last hug. As much as journalists marveled at his prolific output, Lagerfeld made it look easy because he had achieved the ultimate luxury of a position where he could make creative decisions without any concern for business. In interviews, he variously said he wanted to become a cartoonist, a portraitist, an illustrator or a musician.

New Moto G7 Power Leak - Top Notch Display and 5,000 mAh Battery
The Play edition comes with 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, a 3,000 mAh battery and a 13 MP rear camera with PDAF and zero shutter lag. Motorola's Moto G7 is available beginning today in Brazil and Mexico, and it will launch within a month in the USA for $299.

"Karl Lagerfeld is an huge personality, someone out of the ordinary", French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told RTL radio.

"Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of Chanel's success throughout the world", Wertheimer said in a statement. He gained a rock-star status after he joined Chanel in 1983.

For his debut collection for the house, the fashion guru injected a dose of raciness, sending out a translucent navy chiffon number that prompted scandalized headlines.

Lagerfeld was open about his homosexuality - he once said he announced it to his parents at 13 - but kept his private life under wraps.

She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in NY and work as an artist. I like to be alone. Though I had met and interviewed the iconic designer on many occasions by then, I wasn't really certain he would recognize me, or for that matter would even know who I was, given that I had only ever seen him wearing his signature dark sunglasses. Your girls love you so much.

He had also brushed off questions about his age, telling a DW reporter: "I feel young anyways".
