With the sad passing of the most iconic, creative fashion designer in years, German born Karl Lagerfeld on Feb 19, the world lost an artist, photographer, luxury designer, collaborator with other designers and unique and totally iconic gentleman. Recognized for his signature white hair, black sunglasses fingerless gloves and high, starched detachable high white collars, Lagerfeld had a varied, interesting and long career.

Known for his early work with Pierre Balmain, he moved on to be artistic director with Jean Patou then began freelancing for such houses as Chloe, Krizia, Charles Jourdan and Valentino. In 1967 he was hired by Fendi to redesign their fur line and he stayed there until Fendi's death. 

Fendi Furs

In the 1980's, Lagerfeld was hired by Chanel, considered a "near-dead brand" since Coco had passed nearly 10 years earlier. Bringing life back to the company, Lagerfeld revamped its's ready-to-wear fashion line and integrated the interlocked CC monograph into a style pattern for the House of Chanel. 

While he worked with Chanel until his death, he also introduced his own eponymous brand "Karl Lagerfeld", collaborated with Diesel, worked with Orrefors Crystal, made films, collected oddities and adored his cat, Choupette. He was cremated and his ashes spread near those of his mother and his former partner, Jacques de Bascher.  

Karl and Choupette

We have had an incredible amount of interest in our Chanel collection which includes handbags, clothing, runway pieces, jewelry, shoes, boots and scarves. 

With the future of Chanel's head designer unknown, it appears that all of the creations that Karl had anything to do with are highly collectible items right now. So, clean out your closets!  If you have Chanel pieces you no longer wear bring them in!  Chanel is HOT, HOT, HOT right now!
