Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most respected and admired designers in the fashion industry. Lagerfeld’s artistic approach to everything he does has set him apart from his contemporaries, and he brings in elements of his other passions (photography, film direction) into his fashion collections. Lagerfeld simultaneously operates as the head of the infamous Chanel and Fendi fashion houses.
Karl Lagerfeld was born in Hamburg in 1938 and he studied in Paris and fell in love with the city. He entered into the fashion industry as a young man in 1954 and his delicate, elegant aesthetic was immediately recognised by the Woolmark Prize, which he won for designing a spectacular coat. When ready-to-wear fashion was taking hold of Europe,
Lagerfeld went freelance and toured France, Germany, the UK, and Italy working with the biggest fashion houses in the world, including Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and many others.
Karl Lagerfeld’s approach to eyewear has such a lightness of touch that it’s easy to see why he worked with Chloé and Fendi for so many years. There is a similar sense of elegance in Lagerfeld’s designs, and all three designers are masters with soft colour palettes – rose pinks, pastel blues, etc. The subtle approach is key to Lagerfeld’s timeless designs – simplicity never goes out of fashion.
It's impossible to summarise Lagerfeld’s vast career into one short guide, so we hope our range of Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses speaks for themselves and gives you a glimpse into the world of one fashion’s most famous designers.
