Karl Lagerfeld’s most iconic designs and what we’re hoping to spot at the 2023 Met Gala
The one and only
Alongside Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld’s name is one that is famously synonymous with the fashion powerhouse Chanel. While the world knew him as the maestro behind Chanel’s magic following the late founder, the unwavering impact he left extended far beyond the famed house—long before, even. Lagerfeld’s illustrious career spanned a multitude of esteemed houses, including Chloé, Jean Patou, Valentino, and Balmain. Known as one of the hardest-working and most ambitious designers in the industry, he simultaneously held the helm at Fendi, his eponymous label, and of course, Chanel—up until his passing in 2019.
Lagerfeld left behind a legacy that will undoubtedly live on for generations to come, so it wasn’t all too surprising when ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ was revealed as the theme for the 2023 Met Gala. In fact, with such significance in the fashion world, it seemed like it would happen in due time. So, without further ado, while we patiently wait for the fashion parade to commence next May, let’s take a stroll through some of Lagerfeld’s most iconic designs that we’re hoping to spot on the carpet!
