One of the most iconic men in the fashion world, Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of Chanel and Fendi, has died at the age of 85.
The BBC reported that the German designer, who was known for his signature look of a white ponytail and dark glasses, was an icon in the fashion world, creating some of the most dynamic and striking looks of the fashion houses' lines. The BBC quoted him commenting about his now-iconic look.
"I am like a caricature of myself, and I like that."
"The state of his health had been a cause of concern for a number of weeks," said a source to The Mirror. "He had not been seen at fashion shows that he was expected to attend. Karl was admitted to hospital on Monday, and died on Tuesday morning."
