Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld dies at 85
Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has died in Paris at the age of 85, according to multiple reports.

“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,” said Chanel CEO Alain Wertheimer in a statement. “Today, not only have I lost a friend, but we have all lost an extraordinary creative mind to whom I gave carte blanche in the early 1980s to reinvent the brand.”

Virginie Viard, Director of Chanel’s Fashion Creation Studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, will take the creative reins at the company’s fashion business.

Rest in peace, Karl.
