Can you feel it? The vacuum suction of Karl Lagerfeld’s tragic loss created a chasm in the fashion industry. Where his titanic personality and talent once filled the atmosphere, it was all suddenly gone with a whoosh and a sob. And considering his 60 prolific years as a designer, Lagerfeld’s death is still reverberating through the corners of the universe, but it was especially felt this season during Paris Fashion Week, where he once ruled as king. In the City of Lights, one had gone out, and it was all we could do to still see through the tears.
In honor of the designer’s memory and legacy, Savoir Flair has created a heartfelt homage to the mythological man himself. In our exclusive editorial shoot, starring Isabeli Fontana wearing an array of exquisite couture pieces, we tell the story of loss, grief, and acceptance in an emotional series of visuals.
Adieu, Mr. Lagerfeld. You will not soon be forgotten.
