On this day, we take it to reminisce on the beautiful past of Karl Lagerfeld and the way he transformed the fashion industry with his classic designs. From transforming the luxury CHANEL brand, Fendi, and even his own self-titled label. Everything Karl touches turns to gold. There was no end to his creative spark.
Karl Lagerfeld managed to take Gabrielle Chanel’s dreams and made them into a reality at CHANEL. He sprinkled each design with the grace and poise CHANEL embodied. Reinventing the classic CHANEL suit and tweed jacket was only a small portion of his repertoire. The standard lbd (little black dress), pearls, and costume jewelry were all popularized because of his designs.
