Audience Moved To Tears At Late Karl Lagerfeld’s Last Chanel Show
Chanel, on Tuesday, presented the final collection designed by its longtime creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, that moved the audience to tears.
The brand’s Fall/Winter 2019 show took place at the Grand Palais in Paris, featuring a transformative set decorated as a glamorous winter ski wonderland, and filled with touching tributes to the late designer, Lagerfeld, who died at the age of 85 on February 19.
A note with a sketch that Lagerfeld drew of himself and Chanel founder, Coco Chanel, with the words, “The beat goes on…” was placed on each attendees’ seat. And a minute of silence was observed before the show began, according to reports.
Many of his muses that regularly model in his shows, including Cara Delevingne and Kaia Gerber walked the runway, wearing a winter-ready suit and a snowball dress, respectively, from his last collection.
