5 Classic Chanel Pieces Designed by Karl Lagerfeld

Fashion icon, legend, and revolutionary Karl Lagerfeld has passed at the age of 85. As the creative director of Chanel since 1983, Lagerfeld has not only reinvented the Chanel fashion house, but paved the way for luxury fashion.

In recent years, Lagerfeld also branched off from couture and launched his own brand of affordable bags and shoes. The runway-worthy pieces were sold in stores like Net-A-Porter and DSW.

Ranging from the classic Chanel Boy Bag to the 1994 Ready to Wear Spring collection, Lagerfeld defined the classic Chanel vibe. Here are the top five pieces Lagerfeld has designed for Chanel:

1994 Spring Ready to Wear Collection

Feminine tweed suits are one of Chanel’s signatures, and this collection from 1994 brought back the timeless look for a new generation of celebrities and socialites.

Chanel Boy Bag

Inspired by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel herself, Lagerfeld tributed her masculine vibe when creating this iconic Boy Bag.

Chanel Watch

After four years of serving as Chanel's creative director, Karl launched the house’s first watch: the Première Watch. Unsurprisingly, the watch was inspired by the Chanel No. 5 perfume and Coco Chanel's cherished Place Vendôme.

1991 Pearl Necklace

The timeless ‘charm-bracelet’ feel of this jewelry collection not only became another trademark of the Chanel fashion house, but inspired lots of other designers as well.

Editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, is renowned for sporting these 24/7. Who knows, maybe she gets her beauty sleep in them?

Karl Lagerfeld was a remarkable fashion designer, photographer and leading creative director of Chanel who will be forever honored through every piece he designed.
