PARIS, France — Karl Lagerfeld, arguably the world’s most iconic designer and undoubtedly the most prolific, has died in Paris. He was 85.
In a seven-decade career as fashion’s ultimate free agent, Lagerfeld created collections simultaneously for the celebrated houses of Chanel and Fendi, in addition to his signature label, at a pace without rival in the luxury industry.
Today we remember his most remarkable runway moments. No idea was to grand or out of reach. From importing and hand carving an iceberg from Sweden to creating a beach with rolling waves which models splashed through we look back at his greatest runways.
