PARIS — He without a doubt ruled the fashion world for much of his life; dominated headlines, befriended the likes of Pierre Balmain and others. And now we must bring you news that the dearest Karl Lagerfeld is dead at age 85. Lagerfeld, who famously got his start in fashion in Pre-War Germany met Pierre Balmain in 1955.

From there the rest was fashion history. By 1983, Lagerfeld would go on to join the board of creative directors over at Chanel — where he would help define one of the world’s most famous fashion brands.

Lagerfeld’s childhood dates back to a time in which Europe and Germany weren’t quite friendly with the rest of the world. For years, he spent his life hidden away in a massive family estate in Bavaria — where he would later learn French among other popular studies of the time.

For those that super-remember Lagerfeld’s fashion past, he, was also connected to Chloe in the 1960’s. But as we all know, it, was his friendship and fondness for Chanel that rocketed him to icon status. His over-the-top and grandiose fashion shows would help him go on to become one of old money’s most revered names.
