"The Met's latest tome expertly narrates the journey that earned Lagerfeld his seat at the hallowed throne of modern high fashion."--V Magazine   Unparalleled in its luxurious presentation, this publication celebrates the virtuoso artistry of Karl Lagerfeld (1933-2019). Designed to evoke an elegant parchment-and-cloth artist's portfolio, it boasts a pageant of stunning fashion photography alongside Lagerfeld's original sketches, offering a behind-the-scenes window into his process as well as his sartorial brilliance. Silver inks and select gold pages punctuate the book's stylish packaging and recall the designer's signature accessories. An illustrated timeline, unfurling from the back of the volume, chronicles the designer's long and illustrious career.   Lagerfeld produced over 10,000 pieces of clothing across his extraordinary 65 years as a powerhouse fashion designer, from his time at Chloé and Fendi in the 1960s and 1970s to his celebrated leadership in the 1980s and beyond at Chanel and with his own label. His voracious curiosity and boundless imagination yielded beautiful, evocative garments, more than 200 of which are showcased here. These are accompanied by personal reflections from Lagerfeld's premières d'ateliers--the seamstresses behind his extraordinary creations--as well as by Anna Wintour, Patrick Hourcade, Amanda Harlech, and Tadao Ando. A lavish work of art in its own right, this book is also an essential resource on Lagerfeld and how his designs transformed the entire fashion industry.
