Paris, France - KARL Lagerfeld, the myth, the icon has passed away this morning in Paris. As one of the most energetic and creative talents the world of fashion has ever seen, he will be sorely missed.
As a reinventor, Karl LAGERFELD was always trying new things. I remember when he spoke at Le Web in Paris with Loic Le Meur. He enthusiastically talked about how he was embracing digital: sketching on his iPad, engaging with social media, bringing digital printing to his brand.
One of the the most famous German designers, Karl Lagerfeld lead the fashion industry into its current state. At the tail end of his life he has seen the era of sustainability come in and technology. He will be sorely missed.
