Lagerfeld was a problematic determine whose legacy should be held accountable, and but, he was a central determine in trend and thru his work because the artistic director of Chanel, his timeless designs and artistic innovation are undeniably part of trend historical past. It was unbelievable to see so many large, Black, and/ or queer celebrities interpret the theme in their very own distinctive methods and despite the fact that Lagerfeld would have in all probability disapproved of the variety on show, they celebrated their influence on trend — together with Chanel’s legacy (Black girls have been rocking Chanel expertly for many years).
