When Karl Lagerfeld took the helm of the fashion house in 1983, he set out to radically shake up and renew its image - not only through bold collections but also, starting in 1987, by choosing to shoot the house's own campaigns, a move that was unprecedented for a fashion designer.
Designed in collaboration with the late Karl Lagerfeld and the House of Chanel, this coffee-table book opens with an essay by Patrick Mauriès before exploring the campaigns themselves, arranged chronologically. A carefully curated selection of images showcases hundreds of spectacular garments worn by the top models - and personalities - of each era, from Inès de la Fressange, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, to Kirsten Stewart and Lily Rose Depp, captured in glamorous locations, from Coco Chanel's Paris apartment to the French Riviera or LA.
Presented in a deluxe cassette, Chanel: the Karl Lagerfeld Campaigns offers an unparalleled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes - and lens - of Karl Lagerfeld himself.
