Paving the way for the reinvention of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld was known for capturing the essence of modernity, femininity and diversity that is much celebrated in the 21st century fashion landscape. The former creative director of Chanel and Fendi made headlines when he'd missed several major events and was pronounced dead yesterday due to illness.

His signature look of dark glasses and suit have become somewhat of a pop culture icon, repeatedly displayed on our Instagram feed in the form of colourful memories or black and white portraits. As many tributes and condolences poured in from designers and friends and fans alike, his name is uttered with acknowledgement of his strength, inimitable vision and impactful innovations.
