German designer Karl Lagerfeld has died at the age of 85. 

The haute-couture designer and artist director at Chanel was rushed to the hospital outside of Paris Monday night and died Tuesday morning, according to reports. 

He had reportedly been suffering from ill health for a few weeks leading up to his death.

He’d missed two of Chanel’s Paris shows on Jan. 22 but the company said he was not present because he was “feeling tired.”

It was reportedly the first time he’d missed a bow at the end of a show for the brand since he joined in 1983.

Designer Henry Holland tweeted about the fashion icon’s death on Tuesday. 

“To design is to breathe, so if I can’t breathe I’m in trouble,” Holland tweeted, quoting Lagerfeld.

Donatella Versace also took to Instagram to remember Lagerfeld.
