Karl Lagerfeld - brand history

He was born in Hamburg in 1933, but cultivated an air of secrecy around his true date of birth, refusing to reveal it for many years. He reported that he was told as a child that he was special, with no lack of humility himself believing this to be the case. Throughout his life, Lagerfeld built his public image - the Lagerfeld brand. He didn't build it with one conscious decision, he cultivated his fame over the years.

In the early 1950s, Lagerfeld moved to the French capital, Paris, and worked for a number of fashion houses, including Balmain, Patou and Chloé. In the 1980s, he made his big breakthrough as creative director and chief designer of fashion house Chanel. The company, founded by Coco Chanel, had a somewhat outdated image at the time. Lagerfeld carried out a legendary modernisation of the brand and transformed it into a global fashion powerhouse.

Karl Lagerfeld had so many professions that it would be unfair to identify him with only one. He once said in an interview that a job title to describe everything he did had yet to be invented. After all, he was a fashion designer, discoverer of top models, photographer, interior designer, perfumer, entrepreneur, silent film maker, gallery owner, porcelain collector, advertising guru, a multi-talented man.

Karl Lagerfeld perfume

Karl Lagerfeld has been producing fragrances since 1978, when he released his signature Lagerfeld cologne for men - a strong masculine scent that is surprising but not overpowering and has great longevity. His popular women's perfume, Sun Moon Stars, encased in a dark blue flacon, is as beautiful as it is intoxicating. Other popular Lagerfeld fragrances include Bois De Cedre, Capsule, Paradaise and Capsule Light.
