The most iconic and extravagant fashion designer of our time, Karl Lagerfeld has sadly passed away at the age of 85.

Tributes have been pouring in as celebrities and designers alike hail the “genius” for his “extraordinary creative mind.”

Here are some of Lagerfeld’s biggest, memorable and ingenious moments of art and architecture for Chanel:

Faux Street Protest at the Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld was the only fashion-monger who could come up to stage a fake protest march for women’s right at the magnificent Paris Fashion Week where acclaimed models including Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Georgia May Jagger, Edie Campbell, and Gisele Bündchen walked down the ramp wielded signs that read “Make fashion not war”, “Be your own stylist” and “History is her story.”

The Spring-Summer 2019 Sea-Themed Fashion Show

Karl Lagerfeld was a stickler to minutiae. For Spring-2019, he decked out La Grand Palais with the sandy serene beach for the Paris Fashion Week, complete with sand, beach huts, blue sky, waves, and lifeguards.

The phenomenal, Karl Lagerfeld showcased the fascinating underwater fashion show where the runway was all about pearls, over-sized shells, and seaweed that brought iridescent pearly shimmer to the collection.

Fall/Winter 2018/19

For anyone who loves autumn, the transformation of Grand Palais into the magical forest was one wild ride. Models emerged from the mirrored chalet and trod onto the thriving runway.

When it comes to style, grace, and charisma, no one does it better than Chanel.

The miraculous Karl Lagerfeld revamped the Grand Palais into the stockpiled supermarket with over 100,000 Chanel-branded groceries. Models took turns walking down the aisle with Chanel shopping trollies and wire baskets.

    It’s so unfortunate that this man passed. I loved everything he did and wish he could have contributed more to the world of fashion. Everything he did embodied excellence.
