- Karl Lagerfeld wasn't just a fashion talent
Wherever Karl Lagerfeld appeared, he was the focus of attention. He was the elegant man with the powdered white ponytail, dressed in a white shirt with a high collar and liked to wear large black sunglasses. His looks were striking enough to make headlines, let alone his fashion collections. But in his private life he remained somewhat reclusive and liked it quiet. The great fashion artist had a faithful partner, the kitten Choupette, who also became famous and rich thanks to her fame. The cat was already on the cover of "Vogue" and had its own Instagram account.
Karl Lagerfeld was particularly popular with models and stars.
Beyonce was also his favourite.
Karl Lagerfeld wasn't just a great artist on the fashion scene. He himself liked to take photos, owned a rich private library with around 300,000 books and designed for stars like Madonna. He was the first designer to collaborate with the Swedish fashion chain H&M, and in recent years also with the well-known label Tommy Hilfiger. Today, however, the world mourns the talented and somewhat eccentric designer. The fashion scene will look different without him.
