Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld dies at 85

Tributes have been paid to Karl Lagerfeld, who’s died at the age of 85 after a period of ill-health.

From his own eponymous brand to a record 36 years at Chanel, he designed a huge range of collections every year, from high street to haute couture.

But he was also known for his more outrageous views, including on immigration, body shaming women and slamming the Me Too movement.
