The "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty" exhibit will examine the work of Lagerfeld, who died at age 85 in February 2019.

"Focusing on the designer's stylistic vocabulary as expressed in aesthetic themes that appear time and again in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019, the show will spotlight the German-born designer's unique working methodology," an official description reads.

The exhibit will showcase about 150 of Lagerfeld's designs, including pieces for Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, Patou and Chloé.

The 2023 Met Gala will take place May 1. Organizers have yet to announce co-chairs for the event.
