Chanel and Fendi are planning a memorial for Karl Lagerfeld for June in Paris titled 'Karl For Ever'.
The late designer's former fashion houses Chanel and Fendi have teamed up with his eponymous brand to stage a commemorative ceremony titled 'Karl For Ever'.
The event will take place on June 20 during Paris Men's Fashion Week at the Grand Palais - the venue of his Chanel shows since 2005 - and will be orchestrated by theatre and opera director Robert Carsen.
Karl passed away in February this year at the age of 85 and as per his own request; there was no public funeral, only a private service in Nanterre.
Carsen told WWD: "I wanted something full of life and unexpected. He once famously said, 'A funeral? I'd rather die.'"
