Live the Life: Karl Lagerfeld

Live the Life: Karl Lagerfeld

Photography by Koji Yano

For almost 30 years, Karl Lagerfeld has helmed French fashion empire Chanel, taking the brand’s trademark utilitarian tweed suits and spinning them into outlandish and glamorous fripperies. The Kaiser’s personal style, however, is mechanical in its vampiric piousness. Clad exclusively in black and white, with a high-collared dress shirt, dark sunglasses, fingerless gloves, a white ponytail, and a glittering bauble of some kind, the designer has cultivated an extreme signature look.
