Organized chronologically, Chanel: The Karl Lagerfeld Campaigns includes a carefully curated selection of photographs that showcase hundreds of spectacular clothes worn by the top fashion models and personalities of each era.
When Karl Lagerfeld was appointed to the helm of the then-sleepy fashion house Chanel in 1983, he set out to radically reinvent its image—not only through bold collections, but also by shooting the house’s campaigns himself. Lagerfeld’s photographs breathed life into the brand. Now, his campaigns span the house’s collections—luxurious haute couture, ready-to-wear, cruise, accessories—and have established Lagerfeld as a sought-after fashion photographer.
Filled with more than 600 photographs—featuring Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss in such glamorous locations as Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, the French Riviera, and Rodeo Drive—plus an essay by fashion writer Patrick Mauriès, the book offers an unrivaled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes—and lens—of Karl Lagerfeld himself.
