Chanel Catwalk: The Compete Karl Lagerfeld Collections
Patrick MauriÃ¨s, AdÃ©lia Sabatini
Ever since his first show for the house in 1983, Karl Lagerfeldâ€™s Chanel collections have consistently made headlines and dictated trends the world over. For the first time, the key looks of every Chanel collection ever created by Lagerfeld are gathered in a single volume, offering a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the worldâ€™s most influential fashion brands and rediscover rarely seen collections.
This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house of Chanel, followed by a brief biographical profile of Karl Lagerfeld. It goes on to explore the collections themselves, which are organized chronologically and introduced by a short text unveiling each collectionâ€™s influences and highlights.
Each collection is illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images, showcasing hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks and set designs â€“ and of course the top fashion models who wore them on the runway, from Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista to Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
