The theater of Karl, an homage
The recent passing of Karl Lagerfeld has left us with a gaping hole in the fashion landscape. Lagerfeld was internationally known as the Creative Director for Chanel – he took the reigns in 1983, the year after starting his own name brand, Karl Lagerfeld, although he had already had a formidable career with his work for Fendi and Chloé, since the 60s. Alongside Chanel, he was the creative director for Fendi until his passing.
With decades and decades of work behind him, it is clear that he helped to shape and mold the fashion industry into what we know today.
One of the things that made the Chanel shows so magical, was the other-worldly set design conceived by Lagerfeld. Below, we have put together a selection of some of our favorites, to commemorate his inimitable legacy.
