Revisit the fashion icon and creative’s emblematic contributions to the glossy pages of V Magazine in this tribute of the late Lagerfeld’s works.
Author: Emma Li
Karl Lagerfeld passed away this morning in Paris, marking the death of a visionary genius who was responsible for much of what we understand to be beautiful today.
In 1983, Karl was appointed as the artistic director for Chanel, transforming the brand into a powerhouse over the years. Karl’s endless creativity pushed fashion into the sphere of pop culture, making them two parts of the same whole. His influence in fashion extended to many forms including art and photography, with some of his work published in V.
In honor of his legacy, V has compiled a retrospective of Karl Lagerfeld’s contributions to the magazine featuring Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Hedi Slimane, Kendall Jenner, and more.
