Everybody that loves fashion knows who Karl Lagerfeld is.

After being at the helm of Fendi for half a century and Chanel for more than three decades, the fashion power monger is finally getting the recognition he deserves. The Bundeskunsthalle museum in Bonn, Germany will hold a retrospective on the life and works of the Kaiser.

According to WWD, the show will be curated by the designer's long-time friend and muse, Lady Amanda Harlech along with the help of Karl's publisher friend, Gerard Steidl.

With his signature white hair, shades, high collared dress shirts, tailored blazers and fingerless gloves, the showcase is to document Karl's fashion history, going back from the coat that won him the Woolmark Prize in 1954, his collections for Chloé, the story of his eponymous label, his time in Fendi and Chanel and the photographs and ad campaigns he's worked over the years.

The exhibition will be slated from March 27 to September 13 next year. Six months worth of Karl, you know that man deserves it.
