The frantic buzz of fashion month has quietened, as the industry mourns the loss of Karl Lagerfeld.Dubbed one of the world’s most prolific designers, the 85-year-old revolutionised the face of fashion over the course of his seven decade-long career. After stints at Jean Patou and Chloé, Lagerfeld finally found his footing at Chanel – undoubtedly his most famous move.Having presided over the French fashion house for more than 30 years (with as many as eight collections a year), he saved the company from financial ruin courtesy of his now-famous rebrand of the interlocking CC logo.Further demonstrating his sartorial know-how and starry connections, the designer is also widely hailed for his five-decade reign at Fendi where he joined as head of womenswear and furs back in 1965.From his very first freelance job to the designer’s most famous star-studded runways, we take a look back at Karl Lagerfeld’s illustrious career in pictures.
