Karl Lagerfeld has died aged 85, according to French magazine Closer.
The iconic fashion designer, who was the creative director of Chanel, died in Paris after a period of ill health.
Lagerfeld notably missed his end-of-show bow during the Chanel couture show in Paris at the end of January because he was unable to attend.
It was the first time since 1983 that the German had not spoken to fans after a show.
According to the publication, Lagerfeld died on Tuesday, February 19.
