Legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld died Tuesday at the age of 85.

The German-born creative director at Chanel, Fendi, and his own eponymous label — as well as being a respected photographer — was one of the most celebrated figures of contemporary fashion. Known for his sharp wit and his signature sunglasses, white ponytail, and fingerless gloves as well as for his pioneering work in the industry, Lagerfeld was a singular figure who leaves a lasting legacy, much as he hated that “horrid” word (“it sounds like a funeral”).
