An extraordinary look at Karl Lagerfeld's most iconic runway shows for Chanel, which have transformed the way we experience fashion.
Lagerfeld showcases in an oversize format ten years of Chanel's most influential fashion shows shot by English photographer Simon Procter. Over the past decade, fashion shows have evolved into monumental productions, requiring a level of sophistication and creativity on par with the clothes they present. This has been most evident in Paris at the now legendary runways of Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. To capture the energy of the events, Procter visually re-creates the epic sets--from a luscious forest scene to a rocket launch--combining multiple photographs to illustrate in a single image the many perspectives of the intense but fleeting spectacle. The resulting artworks are held in collections
