I just received news that Fashion Icon Karl Lagerfeld passed away today at the age of 85 in Paris, France. As a designer, photographer, editor, and producer, German-born Karl Lagerfeld was larger than life, creating a universe in which everything is perfectly under control, where each detail is of utmost importance. He’s known as the Andy Warhol of fashion, bringing color to his famous black & white style.
Known as one of the world’s most celebrated fashion designers, Karl Lagerfeld was the creative director for Chanel, Fendi and his own Karl Lagerfeld’s namesake fashion house. His signature ponytail and dark glasses made him an instantly recognizable fashion figure worldwide which appeared as a silhouette on many of his designs, along with his favorite feline pet Choupette.
Karl Lagerfeld & Godson Hudson Kroenig
Some of my favorite images of Karl Lagerfeld are with his godson Hudson Kroenig, son of the model Brad Kroenig. In these images, you can see how much admiration Lagerfeld had towards his godson and the importance of kids fashion. Karl Lagerfeld was often photographed with his godson Hudson Kroenig on the runway during Paris Fashion Week, the first time was for Chanel’s Spring 2011 Collection.

Karl Lagerfeld, Hudson Kroenig, and Cara Delevingne walk the runway during the Chanel show as part of Paris Fashion Week Haute-Couture Spring/Summer 2014 on January 21, 2014 in Paris, France.
Here is an adorable picture of the two at the Chanel Cruise 2017 Fashion Show where the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo presented Lagerfeld with the Grand Vermeil medal.
Karl Lagerfeld Kids Collection
Back in Spring 2016, I blogged the Karl Lagerfeld would premiere his new ready-to-wear and accessories collection for children and babies. The childrenswear collection pays special homage to the designer with symbols of a mini rock-inspired Lagerfeld silhouette, chic attitude, and love of black & white. An Icon of his super fashionable feline, Choupette, can be found throughout the collection.
