7. Karl Lagerfeld, designer, Chanel
Though his design duties at Chanel and Fendi kept him plenty busy, Karl Lagerfeld also found time to relaunch his signature brand, owned by London-based Apax Partners. Besides a masstige line, the Karl collection, and premium Karl Lagerfeld Paris ranges under license with Italy’s Ittierre SpA, he is also overseeing licenses for watches and perfume, with plans for a concept store in Paris set to open in 2013. All that on top of touring the world to promote Chanel’s “The Little Black Jacket” photo book and exhibition, and side projects as varied as designing VIP helicopters to a collection of color cosmetics for Shu Uemura.
