Fendi and Chanel Team up to Honor Lagerfeld

Fendi and Chanel have collaborated to hold a memorial celebration of the life of the late fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld in Paris on June 20 in the presence of around 2500 guests.

The event will take place at the Grand Palais where Lagerfeld presented many of his runway shows.

“This unique event… will pay tribute to the artist’s legacy and his unprecedented creativity, which expanded beyond fashion to include design, photography, publishing, illustration and architecture,” the fashion houses of Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld said in a joint press release.

The “Karl for Ever" event is planned and directed by Robert Carsen, the noted theater, opera and artistic director.

“How can we celebrate the life of Karl Lagerfeld one of the most complete, dedicated and talented artists of the 20th and 21st centuries? How can we celebrate this Renaissance man, who remained ahead of his time by taking inspiration from the past whilst always looking to the future? Through a tapestry of videos of him throughout his life, interwoven with numerous short interviews with many of the people whom he inspired and who worked with him in so many fields. And perhaps above all through the contribution of actors, musicians, and dancers whose work he admired, who were his friends and who will interpret some of the music and literature that he so loved,” said Carsen in the release.
