News has broken that the inimitable Karl Lagerfeld has sadly passed away aged 85. The designer – one of the most prolific, celebrated and recognisable figures in fashion – helmed Chanel and his own eponymous line, as well as working with Silvia Fendi on womenswear at Fendi. Throughout his career, which spanned seven decades, Lagerfeld changed the very landscape of fashion, transforming Chanel the most successful fashion brand in history and turning the fashion show into a spectacle. His final show was for Spring/Summer 2019 haute couture, staged in Paris earlier this year. He leaves behind an unrivalled legacy of visionary fashion for future generations.
