Karl Lagerfeld

I'm very much down to earth.
Just not this earth.

Karl was always daring.

At the start of his career, he produced pieces that stirred people up — and not always in the good sense. Between the 50s and 60s, many of his collections were polemic in their press reception.

Reporters wrote of overly short skirts. They questioned deep necklines. There were cases of famous magazine editors leaving fashion shows behind.

Like that of a fairy tale, his story started with a pessimistic tone.

But today, like the fabled characters populate childhood imaginations, Karl populates the imaginations of those who love fashion.

Fendi, Balmain, Chloé. These are some of the brands this world renowned designer has worked with. Today he’s the creative director of one of the largest names in the world, Chanel.

Hair methodically combed back. Eyes always hidden behind dark shades. Impeccable white collars.

With an immaculate look, Karl expresses his personality. He also has proved to be the perfect successor of the refined cuts of Coco Chanel.

Fashion is a language that creates itself in clothes to interpret reality

Even though he believes fashion to be an extension of the real, Karl sees the incentive for his creations in art. In the last few decades he has dedicated himself to photography, and today uses his camera skills to perfect his work.

Next to his muse Cara Delevingne, he shot the campaign for our first collection with Karl Lagerfeld Fashion House.

The contrast of this serious man with the bubbly personality of Cara is the perfect combination for Melissa.

His models play with ludic details that are right up our alley.

Under the designer’s lens, Cara's extroverted image personifies Melissa in a unique arrangement of elegance, fun, and style.
