Karl Lagerfeld enjoyed the stature of a god among mortals in the world of fashion, where he stayed on top for well over half a century and up to his death, at an age almost nobody apart from himself knew with to-the-day precision.But Lagerfeld, who simultaneously churned out collections for LVMH's Fendi and his eponymous label -- an unheard of feat in fashion -- was almost a brand in his own right. The designer mingled with the young and trendy until the last, pairing up with 17-year-old catwalk darling Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, for a collaboration released by his Karl Lagerfeld brand in 2018 .Lagerfeld also stood out as a craftsman.Saint Laurent, who died in 2008, became the enfant cheri of high society and Lagerfeld leader of a wild-child younger group.Known to adore Diet Coke, Lagerfeld said that he shed weight in the early 2000s to fit into the razor-thin suits brought in by Christian Dior's then menswear designer Hedi Slimane.In rare moments when he was not working, Lagerfeld retired to one of his many homes in Paris, Germany, Italy or Monaco, all of them lavish carbon copies of 18th-century interiors.
