Carine Roitfeld and Gigi Hadid have remembered Karl Lagerfeld on the first anniversary of his death.
The German couturier, who oversaw Chanel, Fendi, and his own namesake brand, passed away at the age of 85 on 19 February 2019 from complications of pancreatic cancer.
One year on, the fashion world continues to mourn Lagerfeld, with French editor Roitfeld leading the tributes on Wednesday.
“I miss you,” she simply captioned a black-and-white snap of herself and the iconic designer.
Hadid also posted a snap of herself at an event with Lagerfeld and wrote, “Karl (heart emoji) we miss you so much!”
The fashion star’s longtime Fendi colleague, Silvia Venturini Fendi, uploaded a happy image of them together too, along with the word, “Forever.”
Elsewhere, representatives for the Karl Lagerfeld brand shared a clip of him filming a TV advertisement in his signature black suit, white shirt, fingerless gloves, and sunglasses.
“THE REAL KARL. This enchanting behind-the-scenes footage has never been shared before. It reveals a side of Karl that few people saw – light-hearted, funny and sincere – as he unconsciously switches between French and German. Thank you, Karl, with love forever from your team,” they commented.
Others to share tributes on social media included model Ines de la Fressange, stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, and Lagerfeld’s longtime friend Sebastien Jondeau.
Meanwhile, Christian Dior Beauty’s Peter Philips added: “One year already, can’t believe how fast time goes by. Missing those little moments, some are sharp some are blurry, but all of them are precious. Karl Lagerfeld, the great!”
