It is with deep sadness that the House of CHANEL announces the passing of Karl Lagerfeld, the Creative Director for the CHANEL Fashion House since 1983. An extraordinary creative individual, Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the brand’s codes created by Gabrielle Chanel: the CHANEL jacket and suit, the little black dress, the precious tweeds, the two-tone shoes, the quilted handbags, the pearls and costume jewelry. Regarding Gabrielle Chanel, he said, “My job is not to do what she did, but what she would have done. The good thing about Chanel is it is an idea you can adapt to many things.” A prolific creative mind with endless imagination, Karl Lagerfeld explored many artistic horizons, including photography and short films. The House of CHANEL benefited from his talent for all the branding campaigns related to Fashion since 1987. Finally, one cannot refer to Karl Lagerfeld without mentioning his innate sense of repartee and self-mockery. Alain Wertheimer, CEO of CHANEL, said: “Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of CHANEL’s success throughout the world. Today, not only have I lost a friend, but we have all lost an extraordinary creative mind to whom I gave carte blanche in the early 1980s to reinvent the brand.” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at CHANEL, said: “Fashion show after fashion show, collection after collection, Karl Lagerfeld left his mark on the legend of Gabrielle Chanel and the history of the House of CHANEL. He steadfastly promoted the talent and expertise of CHANEL’s ateliers and Métiers d’Art, allowing this exceptional know-how to shine throughout the world. The greatest tribute we can pay today is to continue to follow the path he traced by – to quote Karl – ‘continuing to embrace the present and invent the future’.” Virginie Viard, Director of CHANEL’s Fashion Creation Studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, has been entrusted by Alain Wertheimer with the creative work for the collections, so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on.

Shocked doesn’t even describe what I’m feeling right now, I just received the WORSE NEWS that @karllagerfeld has passed away this morning after weeks of being so ill 😢It’s so hard to believe that you’re gone, I didn’t think that 3 weeks ago would be the last time I saw, hugged and kissed you 😣 Karl thank so much for being one of the people this industry that really believed in me and took a chance with me. Working with Chanel had always been one my biggest dream since I started modelling and you made that dream come true for me. I don’t think I could ever thank you enough for the life changing experiences and opportunities that I received from you. It makes me so proud to know that I got to be apart of your legacy. I got to be in front of your camera while you took some of the beautiful images of me. We got to make history together. It’s moments like this that I will cherish for the rest of my life. I truely love Karl so much not only for his incredible work as a designer and photographer but he made me feel so special in way no one else did. Every time I was in his presence he always made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the room. He gave me so much confidence and belief in myself. He will always hold a special spot in my heart. @djcori thank you for always being by Karl side and I’m so sorry for your loss. Karl I love you, the world loves you and we will miss and think of you everyday. Thank you for everything you did for me and the industry. 💔💔💔 🕊
