Behind the iconic appearance of the unforgettable Karl Lagerfeld, with his oversized black glasses, black tie, tailored suit, and white hair, was a man who lived for art, culture, and fashion. The legendary icon, who will be the theme of the upcoming Met Gala, was a quintessential trendsetter.

It was a microcosm of the fashion icon’s Paris and housed the places he deemed essential. Take a look at the must-see spots in the city that were beloved by Lagerfeld, who created over 180 catwalks as the creative director of Chanel. Oh, la la!
