Karl Lagerfeld’s namesake label has announced plans to commemorate the late designer through its Spring 2020 presentation, slated for the upcoming Pitti Uomo fair in Italy. The showcase will include menswear, womenswear, footwear, eyewear, denim and beachwear collections, as well as a large-scale artwork by London-based artist Endless.

The five-by-nine meter installation by Endless will be live-painted over the course of the event — which runs from June 11 to 14 — and will feature a portrait of Lagerfeld in the artist’s signature bold, street art style. A limited run of 50 T-shirts will also be printed with the same image and available for purchase at Pitti Uomo.

“Our presence at Pitti Uomo will be a special moment to kick off a series of global events that celebrate Karl’s legacy and reflect upon his pioneering, cutting-edge and iconic contributions to design,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of KARL LAGERFELD.

“Pitti Uomo will also be an exciting platform to showcase our new collections and share the inspiring, immersive World of Karl experience.”

During Paris Fashion Week this year, guests showed up clad in full Chanel looks to honor Lagerfeld’s final runway presentation for the house.
